There is No Forever is a story about three friends living on the infamous James Street, the gayborhood of the city. Playboys, abandonment, violence, each manage life’s unexpected obstacles that bring them together while simultaneously ripping them apart.
Letters, poems, prose, and short stories I've written as a means of resistance and healing as a black gay man. Includes a letter from a father to his son, experiences with dating, life after Trayvon Martin's death, and other subject matters.
Jake is young, wild, and runs with his brother's bad-ass gang. But he has a secret he needs to hide. When he is saved from a rival gang by a guy with eyes blue as the summer's sky, all dressed up in an Armani suit and moves like Bruce Lee, the walls he carefully built around him start to crumble.
Neon (meaning new) – is the forth most abundant element in the universe, but rare on Earth, found at 1 part in 65,000.
It is an element which doesn’t like to react, because the outermost shell of electrons orbiting the nucleus is full, giving no incentive to swap with other elements. Produced through fractional distillation, the chill factor makes neon important. A high electric charge excites the neon and it glows as it returns to its neutral state.
It’s inertness makes it long-lasting.
