Valentine’s Season Begins in the Frozen North Country.

Just what is a valentine, anyhow?

Every time I think of sending one what comes out are really confessions or held in truths behind sweet smiles of lies. I remember once, when trying to be nice and a friend was about to make a big mistake and lose his soul forever. I just smiled and said how nice his fiance was. Beware of people saying ‘nice.’ ‘Nice’ is the death nell. Nice is the ending. Nicely done.
Somehow I forgot this was up. It makes a great Valentine for the damned.

Keep watch on this space. I shall be releasing many Valentine’s into the ether. All sincere. Some beautiful. Some still have fresh blood on them. All of them true.
