Olivier Guiberteau

A bus trip would take forty-eight hours and likely boredom, possible rectal damage, and potential insanity – but also, a great adventure.
In Modern Venice
Kim McKechney

Our gondolier sported a thick handlebar moustache worthy of the Village People.  A thin cigarette dangled dangerously from his mouth, hanging so loosely it seemed to brazenly flout the laws of physics

James Campion

Ferguson is a city of around 21,000 citizens in St. Louis County, Missouri.

Young woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown
Abigail George

Men are cruel. Beautiful men are cruel. Intelligent men are cruel.
Upside down, Backwards,
& Inside Out

Mira Martin-Parker

We must have been out together that night, but I don’t remember what club we were at or which band was playing. All I know is that she left the show before I did.
How to Help A Man in Quicksand
Mark Pierro

The first thing is to stay calm and not make a fool of yourself by pretending you haven't dealt with this sort of situation before
