First Rain

Walking to my car in a warm day and there it is… wet floors water, touching my face. landing on my glasses. “What the hell?” “Why now?” I say to myself out loud. The first rain not in a good place. I’m not prepared for it. My favorite rain. Not when I’m expecting it. It […]

The love song of J. Asshole Profuck

Let us go then you and I Where we left our hopes and dreams getting drunk in that local bar a friendly one, like most of them, made us lose our conscious. We can go outside and praise the sun we can go to bed and forget the day Yet, you need to wake up early […]
