Haiku: The Writer
He waits for his muse
Alone in the quiet night
She enters naked
Haiku: The Honeymoon
Her legs are spread wide
The sheets white and comforting
He eats her pussy
Hello hello hello, all my brother and sister readers and writers of erotica! I’ll be the first to admit that I write better erotic flash fiction than I do erotic haiku poetry. There was a time not too long ago when I studied writing haiku poetry in the hope that haiku would make me a better writer of flash fiction. I lost my interest in haiku poetry; but I never lost my interest in writing flash fiction. And now I’m obsessed with erotic flash fiction.

Well, in about five days the Old Soldier will be back on his beat in Little Italy. I’ve begun my breathing and stretching exercises in anticipation of karaoke at Nico’s in Little Italy the first Saturday night in May to once again test my theory of karaoke as performance art. I’ll have several business cards in my wallet for promoting the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction; but I’ve been thinking about a more aggressive marketing campaign using my book to market this magazine.
See I have several paperback copies of my book of flash fiction on consignment at the East End Book Exchange on Liberty Avenue in Little Italy, right across from Armand’s where I drink. The book sells for $10.00. I keep $6.00 and the owner of the bookstore keeps $4.00. I actually lose money on the book. The book is strictly a marketing tool to promote the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction; but the book is buried on the local author’s shelf with the books of all the other local authors. I need to separate myself from all the other local authors.
I’ve been thinking of letting the owner of the bookstore keep the whole $10.00 if she will place my book where every customer who enters the store will see it. There is a real possibility that my suggestion may offend the owner because she doesn’t want to offend all her other writers.
This is a delicate matter and I have to give it more thought.
