I have a fiction published in the new issue of Blood Tree Literature, an online Lit Mag based in Santa Fee, New Mexico, USA, entitled, Throwing a Sausage Back and Forth for Five Minutes without Letting it Drop in their experimental / Hybrid Section. Written a while ago now, during my extended ‘coddle’ period. 😊

Inspired by a work by conceptual artist, John Baldessari, from 1972/73, entitled, Trying to Photograph a Ball So that it is in the Centre of the Picture.
“As a result of the goal, laid down in advance, of getting the ball as near to the centre of the picture as possible, Baltessari relieved himself of any further compositional decision and achieved pictures that no longer have anything to do with the problem of ‘that looks good alongside that.’ Like his painting before, his treatment of photography is no longer determined by craft skills or formal innovation, but by the strategic abandonment or deliberate disregard of conventional rules.”
i.e. an extremely pretentious way of justifying a very silly title. This fiction goes well with Getting it away with it by Electronic. “Enjoy.” 😊 😊 😊

Kicking My Mother In The Head
is now available to read on
Cold Coffee Stand!

Some people have really shitty Christmases and a long, long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, so did I. In light of this tinsel-less fact, here’s a metaficion of mine in which I stick three heads up my own fictional arse. Contains a seasonal sprinkling of sprouts.
As Shakin’ Stevens would say – ‘Merry Christmas – everyone.’

Put your braces together and your boots on your feet
And give me some of that old moonstomping…
Skanking it easy, Skanking it good.”
