  • The Gears Go Turning (Mature)

    “Dude, look at her tits!” I glanced up at the girl walking by, her voluptuous cleavage spilling out of her too tight top, jiggling in time with her voluptuous fat rolls. I shuddered. My friend followed her with his eyes as she walked down t...

  • A Quiet Start to a Quiet War

    Another young man walked into the cafe. This one was clean-cut, dressed in a crisp suit, looking for all the world like an entrepreneur or a Wall Street stock broker. It was his eyes that gave it all away. They were a shimmering blue that seemed to str...

  • Café in The Village

  • Kaleidoscope (Mature)

    The Doctor sits outside slowly stirring coffee, watching young legs walk on in knee highs and pressed plaid. His version of jazz plays on the cafe speakers. His sun spins the jeweled face of his watch into a sidewalk kaleidoscope. His wrought iron tabl...

  • Estou ficando velho

    Estou ficando velho… Já nao me empolgo com madrugadas como essa. Prefiro o bom e velho café da manhã acompanhado das noticias no rádio, do que festas regadas ao alcool ao lado de dezenas de “amigos”. Me acalmo tentando dormir ao s...
