High Speed Romance

    The turbulence of love—  first encounter, plane takes off, get high. Plateau. Wake up to the realization that it could be a long ride. Get bored and restless before the descent. Breakup. Get off the plane. Anger, heartache, disappointment, frustration, man and woman go separate ways.

Lohbado and the bear

            Lohbado was sent to the office of Headmaster Bates after stealing a slice of Lori’s cherry-cream pie. Lohbado was fourteen-years old at the time. Master Bates trembled with rage as Lori led the boy by the ear into the office. He pulled out a twelve-inch wooden ruler and spanked the boy’s hand until it turned red.

rosy glow spaghetti

For inspiration, Lohbado gazed for a long time into a bowl of spaghetti, until a rosy glow spread throughout the bottle-green room. One eye on noodles, the other on strawberry, Lohbado felt oneness of the two. A dynamic tension pulled them together, while maintaining a safe distance.

salt, pepper and false teeth

    Lohbado followed salt, pepper and false teeth into the soft tungsten light of the kitchen.

Lohbado's bite was worse than his bark. Add a little salt and pepper to make it taste better.
