"In early 1974, an amiable Japanese university dropout named [Norio] Suzuki, who had tramped his way through some fifty countries, took it upon himself to make a journey through the Phillippines...he told his friends that he was going to look for Lieutenant Onoda, a panda and the Abominable Snowman, in that order. Presumably the panda and the Snowman are still waiting, because after only four days on Lubang, Suzuki found Onoda..." --translator's forward to No Surrender: My Thirty-year War by Hiroo Onoda (tr C Terry, 1974).

The Journey from the Center to the Page.

Joe Ahearn has a new book out, Five Fictions by Sulphur River Review Press.

Stomp proof bugs across from the end blog
A paranormal panorama cerise
With blog bling, askew

Pearly rook
Dark to write the times askew
Fathoms rook

The chronicles of cerise.
Dobry fatwa the arcane nacres
Of Aleppo rook

Pawn opening (shadow purposely askew);
Cars thick as leave flies up thick as thieves
Slag cerise

Who crave ore cerise
American torture nanoninja have
Shipshape egghead crow, merle, rook
In squamous atavistic pitch die askew
