'Misbehavin' by Tracy Lynn Darling and 'The wild ones' by Michael Gebelein.
by Michael Gebelein It’s always been hard for me to identify with things that are unknown. To feel the embrace from a different plane of existence or consciousness seems incorrect. I’ve made a show of tolerance and acceptance so hopefully actions really do tell more to the world than words. Leaning in closer to see the world with eyes like a fortune teller on Miami Beach, or a Baptist preacher in a small Southern town, a gas station attendant in Cleveland. Maybe they’ve got it figured out, but for now I’ll just lay in this bed with this piece of paper on a Monday morning with the snow coming in from outside and a ring of cigarette smoke over the end table. Letting the world have a short glimpse before throwing the curtains wide. Michael Gebelein is a writer living in Asheville, North Carolina.
