Calming the Salmon

Deserts exert influence on the riverbed, distressing the fauna. Salmon born early, their birthplace a sauna. Reluctant fishermen catch and release. Release and catch and release again. The whole time the cast was their only plan.

For bombshells and clamshells, honeycombs and honeybells, we take it easy and take it well.

A lifetime in solitude is a day in hell.

You have to keep your mouth closed to tell this tale.

Any man can have a vision, only the honorable will act. It’s all the rage to hesitate, and that’s why I react.

A million years to call your own, with never a space to label home.

The time we spend to keep our place won’t mean a thing if the sun goes nova. Sun worshippers convert now to Jehovah.

Berate the boys for making noise. Hate the noise, not the boys.

A lot has happened since we last met. Our psychic connection relates all which hasn’t…yet.

This is where I'm supposed to brag about how I've written seven novels, twelve screenplays, thousands of short stories, four self-help books, and one children's early-reader, but I'd rather stay humble. You can find out about things I've written or follow my barchive (web archive, aka 'blog) at or follow me on twitter @kurt_gailey. I love sports and music and books, so if you're an athlete or in a band or you're a writer, give me a follow and I'll most likely follow you back. I've even been known to promote other people's projects.
