Thousand, a ten-volume prose-poem-epic by Glenn Ingersoll

100 words a day for a thousand days. That’s why it’s called Thousand. No other title could compass it. 

It begins when there’s a knock on the door. Somebody you know? Or no one you will ever meet? Before you go to the door you will need a drink.

A transcendental butler, a tea party for gnomes, a comet with perfect understanding, a boy who climbs down from the sky, a tour guide for the end of the world, an ant as key to a secret box, lost languages, a barnstormer, washing dishes. 

Originally a project for Glenn Ingersoll’s LoveSettlement blog, Thousand has been realized as a ten-volume book by Mel C. Thompson Publishing. Each plain-black volume neatly contains 10,000 of the whole’s 100,000 words. 

Thousand is available from Amazon.

Series: Thousand (Book 1)
Paperback: 104 pages

Language: English
ISBN-10: 1727326571

three haiku at Failed Haiku

Failed Haiku specializes in senryu, or humorous, usually human-oriented haiku.

The editor produces an issue every month — often quite full. This month’s issue (#44, August 2019), wherein three of my haiku appear, is 126 pages. 

My poems appear on p.114. Scroll on down!
