“A Guided Tour Thru THE HAUNTED HONEYCOMB Gallery!” by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

“The ART of Dealing (With It All…)” by Richard F. Yates

In the shadows of WWI, a small group of weirdos gathered together in a little, dingy bar in Zurich, and they made an UNGODLY racket in protest of EVERYTHING. The war was senselessly killing an entire generation, the societies of “enlightened” Europe had fallen prey to the GOO-GOO MUCK of modern nonsense, and faith in human progress hadContinue reading ““The ART of Dealing (With It All…)” by Richard F. Yates”

The point of creation is… The last click of the clock. My goodness! How frightening! The ceiling was drooping, perhaps from the pressures of… Spider-like, the community scuttled about producing potholes and listening to vibrations and echoes. Webs everywhere… But we knew that Kool aid powder with a little water could make our hair spikyContinue reading ““Thirteen Hiccups (That Refused to Rule the World)” by Richard F. Yates”
