Lascivious Ladies and Genteel Gents,
we've just shown you
we've just shown you
what NOIR-HAIKU looks like ... at
noirtorious crime-guy writer 'round WebTowne,
AJ Hayes, calls "NOIRETRY".
I tell ya, the man's poetry in motion,
no matter what genre he's doin' the mess'around with.
This one though?
It's a sure shot ~

Thompson gun is talking trash.
Tommy's speakin' high and right.
Pull down left, forget the sights.
Nicky Aces got the blues.
Forty-Fives are real bad news.
Nicky dancin' all Jack Flash
Falls flat forward. Breathes his last.
Thompson says what Nicky knew.
Just one thing that you don't do.
Just one line that you don't cross:
Ain't no stealin' from the boss.

Here's lookin' at You,
"There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter."
"The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places."
if you can trust somebody is to trust them."
I trust the Fedora Fella and the shadows of Noir implicitly to catch us off guard. Sometimes, that's all it takes to tilt the measure of true class.
|I'm gunning for that Hayes guy. We hear he's trouble.|

Yeah, we all kinda know this crime-writer, tough guy with a tender side he ain't gonna like me warblin' like a canary about out loud in public. He's the champion of all the authors we are. When I gotta glimpse of this piece featured in BLACK HEART MAGAZINE'S June, 2011 NOIR ISSUE, I couldn't resist the shared-promo heist. I jammed the roscoe in his button and said, 'Close your yap, bo, or I squirt metal.' Well, that wasn't exactly how it shook down, but AT THE BIJOU Noir-afficiandos, you got to share our Fedora Fella's mighty fine love for lingo and his debonair flair -- or is that flare -- of flingin' it.
During "THE SHADOWS OF OUR NOIR" swanky shows AT THE BIJOU, AJ's under the hot spotlights in BERTINO'S HEAD and a glimpse of our co-authoring novel, SPY-SIDE ECONOMICS. You'll dig him there, as you do this big lug all around WebTowne, playin' at the usual suspected joints: A Twist of Noir, Yellow Mama and Muse, Title Fights, Acorn Review, Flashshot, The Hard Nosed Sleuth, Shotgun Honey, Apollo’s Lyre and Black Heart Magazine’s Noir Issue.

Recently, upcoming AT THE BIJOU's NoirStar Darren Sant's new knockout joint, NEAR TO THE KNUCKLE, featured our big Palooka's poem SURVIVING. I tell ya, it'd knock your socks off even if you were already barefoot. Click & See ~ you'll see.
Check out Black Heart Magazine when the Noir bug's nippin' atcha and you're dodgin' Chicago lightening. Rat-a-tat, rat-a-tat ~
