This short-short story A Poet’s Pay appeared in the Sonoma Valley Sun – Vol. XI. Issue 29 in the Creative Arts Section edited by Deb Carlen.

The idea came out of the new western (Overland) I am writing, but is also based on the old Faygo commercials and Monty Python’s Dennis Moore sketch. Eventually the story will appear on the Sun’s website:  

Pictured is Charles Earl Bowles, aka Black Bart. Bowles was an English-born outlaw noted for the poetic messages he left behind after two of his robberies. Often called Charley by his friends, he was also known as Charles Bolton.
