Someone Marches Brave
























                                 Always through the darkest phase
                                 Be it thick or thin      
                                 Always someone marches brave     
                                 Here beneath my skin

Last Fair Deal Gone Down


                                 ............. don't cry this time
                                 If you cry 'bout a nickel, you'll die 'bout a dime
                                 She wouldn't cry, but the money weren't mine

F.X Toole


         Ring magic is different from the magic of the theatre, because the curtain never comes down - because the blood in the ring is real blood, and the broken noses and the broken hearts are real, and sometimes they are broken forever.

Just a Pest


         He told himself she wasn't really such a bad person, she was just a pest, she was sticky, there was something misplaced in her make-up, something that kept her from fading clear of people when they wanted to be in the clear.
