The question then becomes… How do writers connect with a population that is leaving the written word behind? I’m not sure I have the answer but this is the experiment. Watch the video for my poem “Slow Burned & Inked” on YouTube.
When police detectives show up at his door, the narrator of “Vertical Blind” realizes a fight he heard the previous night coming from a nearby alley was the sound of a woman screaming for her life, not the usual everyday drunks he is used to. He comes to find out what he heard had been a woman being murdered.
Carl Robinette explores alienation in his latest flash fiction story, “The Night Crew,” which was recently published by Every Day Fiction. In this story the protagonist is attempting to rise out of his own deepening alienation from the world.
