(Photos by Bald Punk – Scrappy Doodles) In the previous post in this series, I was in Central Park being enticed by a sexy, green-colored salesgirl from Strand Bookstore. I left off where I was running after her-into the Phantom Hills of Mannahatta, possibly to my death, or at least, never to be seen again. But I didn’t die! I’m […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – Central Park – Click twice to fully enlarge) A bone chilling breeze woke me from a wild dream. I was outside on my feet, and it was dark. My arms were raised above my head. My legs felt like jelly . . . I had remembered leaving Strand Bookstore after purchasing Nexus by Henry Miller, and making my […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – Click twice to fully enlarge) Last Friday afternoon, after work which had me gutting an apartment in Brooklyn, I took the R train back to Manhattan and got off at the 8th Street subway station in Greenwich Village.

I pulled over and watched him disappear just as he came to a white-shingled cottage. The cottage seemed so out of time and place, I fully expected it also to vanish into thin air. . . I hardly had […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – The Rock Church, Queens Blvd.) Having sworn off the supernatural world outside Calvary Cemetery in Queens, a conspiracy quickly formed against me. By the time we reached the Bronx, it had gathered and took incorporeal shape . . . We drove off from the Calvary boneyard in Yankees-anticipatory glee. On our […]
