Isn’t it strange
how often you’re surrounded
by strangers?
The car you’re following behind
as your driving down the interstate–
Who is inside, what are they talking about?
Are they singing to songs on the radio?
Are they arguing
about something one of them said?
Something one of them did?
Or maybe didn’t do?
Where are they going?
Why are they going there?
I think about these people every day.
I wonder about their lives,
about their plans, their destinations.
I wonder if any of them
ever wonder the same
about me.

My Smashwords Books

Hi Friend,

So far I have placed two short works on Smashwords.  A book of poems and first part of a short story (it will be a series).  I had worked on this series earlier this year but decided to make some further edits.  More like some big changes to the plot.

And thanks so much to all of you who gave me the encouragement to use this smashwords platform.

So this is the link here:
