Another short one, circa 2003.  For a long time, I had a hard time kicking the limerick rhyme scheme.  
I’ll be compiling the book soon for digital publication…That is, unless you’re an agent or a publisher who would like to work with me on this.

This is a bit of a longer one that I wrote back in 2003.  I had taken a psychology class a year or two before, and had been fascinated by the surgical procedure used to treat terminal epileptic patients, where the bridge of nerve fibers connecting the two brain hemispheres is intentionally severed, so grand mal seizures could start up, but not spread over the entire brain.  The side effect is a condition known as “Alien Hand Syndrome,” in which one brain hemisphere desires one thing, and the other half does something completely different, sometimes inappropriately so.  I wrote this up in limerick form, short of doing a whole story treatment, and I’m still pretty pleased with it.  I’ve changed some of the wording from the original, but very little.  I hope you will enjoy it.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Okay.  Last one for tonight.  I’m having fun laying these out, and believe me, there’s lots more where these came from.  I have a couple of poems hanging around in my notebooks that I’m going to transcribe and illustrate, and then I think I’ll have enough to release a short ePub for any interested parties.
Thanks for all of the likes and reblogs.  If things go well, I’ll have maybe one or two more short ones to post tomorrow.  
Good night for now.

Aaaaannnd…One more.  I think this one is much less likely to piss people off.

Back in 2003, I began work on an ongoing book of poems entitled, Adverse Verses.  Over the years, I have continued to add to it, a bit here and a bit there.  Most recently, I brought the volume in to work to show it to a fresh audience and get the opinions of some of my coworkers.  My thought has always been to take some scans of the pen & ink/watercolor illustrations therein and attempt to get the thing published, either by a publisher, or on my own in the form of an ePub, or possibly some second cousin to the old vanity presses I used to hate so much.

This is one of my favorite pieces from the book, a little ditty called "The Little Boy With Leprosy."  I don’t mean to be insensitive to the condition, though if I was, I doubt I would have done this as a poem, and would probably have gone with the more politically correct name for this affliction, which is Hansen’s Disease.  Whether you approve or not, here it is.  And I can’t guarantee there won’t be more like it.

As always, thanks for stopping by.

While I was on vacation, starting July 8th, I discovered a blank steno notebook and began writing a story that occurred to me in that instant. Over two weeks later, I’ve got over 130 handwritten pages, and it’s still going strong. The finished output, I hope, will be a fun and fulfilling ghost story for children, and adults. The drawing is of two of the ghost characters seated at a booth in AJ’s diner in the fictional Bentley, California. I will of course keep you posted as things unfold.

Here is a one page story entitled, My Dinner With The Diarrheacher.  There are a lot more vignettes to come!  But I need to go to bed now, or I’ll be in trouble.
Good night!

The above description is entirely accurate. At least two more longer short pieces on the way. J. Schiek
