    Out on the lawn, a huge dog lay on the grass. Its dark fur was soaking up the sun, and its large tongue lolled lazily to one side. The tree to its left was spreading shade out just over the dog’s water bowl so that it would stay cool.

    Smoke drifted through the trees, caught between branches and held back by leaves, and when I looked out I could see ash had covered the lawn in patches deep against fences and obstacles, where the wind had swept it, leaving small patches of an almost repellant green glowing in the diminishing light.

    a light breeze cuts through an abandoned battlefield, and the discarded blades sticking out of the ground rattle in the wind.

    We let it die. Negligence, our neighbor called it. Self-absorbed, she said we are. Joke’s on her though. We’re breeding sandworms.

    He looked into those brown eyes. This was HIS realm, no space for the other. He lunged forward. The other backed down. Oh, he would find him and if he had to dig up his whole lawn, damned moles.

    “You rotten ass kids need to get your damn imaginations and make believe characters of my damn lawn before I get the garden hose!”

    Verdant favours, these were what she owed. There were a few more days left in summer, so she would have to be particularly strategic where she could and would tackle. It just took a little more oil on her own personal mower.

    Kids playing in the lawn. the parents are merrily lazying in the sun. This is the typical life weekend for a family in US?

    She looked across the grass to the street, squinting in the sunlight. Nope. The car was still there. He insisted on parking in the street. Which was silly. They had a perfectly fine garage that he spent 30 minutes cleaning every week. “Maintenance,” was his motto.

    He was there on the celing like a fly, walking around on sticky feet. I called out to ask how he got there and what he thought he was going to accomplish wandering around up there, and if he fell he was going to hrt himself a lot, the floor is a long way away in these old places. He just buzzed a little cleaned his wings with his back legs and his…[Read more]

  • There was no ceiling, in fact. There never had been. The room was domed by open sky, by endless stars, by soaring comets and brilliant nebulae and all sorts of cosmic treasures. The room had no floor, either; there were only endless miles of green, of blue, of brown and red and yellow– trees and fields and oceans and rivers, mountains and hills…[Read more]

    I am looking up at the ceiling and watching spirals of shadow take over the space above my head. I think the shadows are just a trick of the light. But just as I’m thinking it, I see them stop and change direction, creeping slowly closer until the ceiling has all but disappeared. I try to scream, but I choke on their beach water taste.

    he tried
    each time
    to climb
    just a little higher

    if not himself
    then maybe
    his children could

    they might
    the top

    if not them
    then maybe

    She looked up. There it was again, the black dot in the corner. She shivered. No, she wouldn’t be able to sleep with that thing in here. How was she supposed to. How could that happen? Why weren’t all openings covered?

    She stared up at the fan spinning lazily in the heat. It was barely making a dent in the suffocating heat in the room. She exhaled loudly, hoping that the temperature might hear her dissatisfaction and change it’s tune.

  • Issie Kay commented on the post, ceiling 2 days, 16 hours ago

    Nothing but the dreaded glass ceiling, and if she stared hard enough, shards of contemptuous indifference would drop and cut each side of her jawline. She will then be rendered speechless, perhaps, for good. It was where they resided, and also where she never would be.

  • Meredyth commented on the post, ceiling 2 days, 18 hours ago

    ‘You need to leave, now.’

    This was not looking good. I felt boxed in, even the ceiling was closing over my head.

    ‘How can I negotiate with you when you have a single-minded intent to block everything before we can discuss it?’

    Orbit! “What kind of name is that for gum.” She thought to herself, smiling as he slid her a piece across the table. She placed a cupped hand over her mouth and breathed out and smelled it. She wondered why he felt the need to give her a piece of his gum when she didn’t even ask for it.

    chewing gum
    the earth has its own orbit
    the earth circulates round it and it determines the day and night as well as seasons

  • darseyrsm commented on the post, orbit 3 days, 4 hours ago

    Everyone in her orbit was perfect: symmetrical faces, white teeth, well-dressed. The kind of people who strolled through the world without a moment’s thought that they might not be wanted there. Who wouldn’t want them?
