Hi there, Sheiks and Shebas.  You’re at Jazz Age Wednesdays.  Today’s episode brings us to Chapter 5 of the new series, Hullaba Lulu.  I hope you are enjoying my change of pace from the “Pip-verse.”  Yes, it’s another story set in the 1920s, but this one is a “Diesel-punk” fantasy. 

Once again I have more of the pos-i-lutely fabulous artwork from Rob Goldstein.  He’s made another fun video for this series.  Button up your overcoat and check it out below.  Rob and I are also having inspiring discussions and he’s sending me “three things” to spontaneously drive each chapter of this pantser story.

walking though woods
bleak neighbourhoods
I never understood

alas came a day

heartache immense
veins bleed
just not to death
at least not yet
I am not that lucky

cheerful, glowing faces
adorned spaces,
festival lights
flying heights
solitary confined
life defined
fate refined
almost deadly
sadly, due to one

colossal error
terror, of my life
and I smile,
for a while,
laughing loudly
At insanity of
that moment
and torment
I suffer
with no buffer
of vanity
till eternity
