The Devilish + Demure T.J. Hicks

Part 1.

Suspicious @ 15

What am I, really? The sun does not make me happy, nor the rain get me sad yet I stand on their edge like a border Perhaps happy and sad are another language for a body built to understand such things. I am full of stuff and things.

We Came To Rest

We Came to Rest I came and my monster followed closely behind, out here in the December air; both ready finally, to rest.   Is this it? Did the night air just speak to me? The fullness of her light is dancing as the wisps of vapor energy float by – a gradient drop of the pressure in…

Artifacts of a Product Manager

Artifacts of a Product Manager Photography Was a Passion of Mine Long Before I Became a Product Manager After just a single elective photography course in college, I became hooked.

A Collection Inspired by “Night Moves” – A song written and performed by Bob Seger. One of my absolute favorite songs ever. I was a little too tall Could’ve used a few pounds Tight pants points hardly renown She was a black haired beauty with big dark eyes And points all her own sitting way…

Dumpster Diving

The dumpster arrived recently just in time for some overdue spring cleaning And I could not help but imagine how lovely all of this stuff and extra things would appear inside

Dream Files from Old New England

An excerpt from “Final Resting Place”. My body violently jerks out of sleep. Like in the movies when you see someone wake up in a dream. It’s never happened to me before. It’s happening right now and I feel it — perhaps the strangest sensation I have ever experienced. My body rises out of bed…

My X-MAS Time Gift Wrap

All of these precious gifts from you they consume me and often at times like these oh how they can confuse me “why am I acting my way through Christmas again”? I know we do not have much in the way of material things which sort of makes it sting a little more. Did these…

Please Come Home
