Poem 5: Revenga
Poem 9: Love in the archive

No, your short story should be:

told from the point-of-view of a man whose daughter gets caught up in a cult

from the point-of-view of a paroled youth, falsely accused

the point-of-view of a young monk

point-of-view of a quirky caretaker, at a special needs elementary school

of a fire-fighter's widow

a kid, whose older brother recently hanged himself


told from the point-of-view of a harried farmer

from the point-of-view of a lonely cat-loving librarian

the point-of-view of a jaded private detective

point-of-view of a roving reporter and a studio anchor

of a conflicted kidney recipient

a petite Indian girl

white male executive

told from the point-of-view of a snake, sipping intel info through a bendy straw

from the point-of-view of a lovely and refined vampire

the point-of-view of a puppet, who longs to dance with no strings

point-of-view of a former baseball player, who has seen better days of glory

of a dirty police officer or undercover narcotics agent or sexy gun-toting drug trafficker

a highly intellectual, yet emotionally distant, fly on the proverbial wall

teenage angst

told from point-of-view’s view-point
