Turning the Tide

On vacation in Florida with a sprained ankle, I spent most of my time observing people from a balcony.

This short story played out before my eyes. I nearly leaped from the eighth floor when . . . (head on over to Tweetspeak Poetry to find out).

Hope you enjoy a bit of fiction for a change. Thanks to the editors at Tweetspeak Poetry and my dear friend, first reader, and favorite poet Dave Malone, seems I’m turning the tide.
