wondered

I’ve wondered so many times about the life I do not have. It is better to use what you have instead of wondering about other things.

tables

Whad’a want?” He shuffled a cigarette out of the packet and grasped it between his lips
“Whad’a think? The money you owe me.”
“Now don’t get twitchy. Put that gun away.”
“Don’t tell me what to do. Just give me the money. You don’t like it when the tables are turned do you!”

barber

He brushed the loose hair for his last customer’s shoulders. “That’ll be $16 sir.” The man pressed some notes into Ken’s hand and waved as he closed the shop door behind him. For 43 years Ken had been a barber. What stories he could tell, he thought. Their secrets are safe with me. Ken smiled to himself as he began to tidy up the shop.

sage

Sage is a useful herb which accompanies pork very well.
It is also an office software accounting programme.
Its the name of an owl in Parsley the Lion, too.

Out of breath, Mikel climbed higher and higher, determined to find out if the legend was true, he pushed himself onwards. His hands grasped the hard rock as he pulled himself up the last ledge. Rolling over he slowly got to his feet. He stared unbelievingly at the old man seated cross legged on the cold stone.
“Are you the Sage they whisper of?”

flare

With a flare of anger she turned to face the beast. Sword in hand, she held her ground. The beast snarled, inhaled and blew out a fiery breath. Nettle swung her sword sideways in front of her body; the flames hit the silver metal and deflected back at the dragon. With a wild look in its eyes, it spread it wings and began to circle her.

“Courage girl,” Nettle whispered to herself.

microphone

He stood nervously in front of the crowd. The hall was filled to the brim. This was to be his debut. He nodded to the band. The drummer smiled then said, “one, two three” and struck out the beat for the musicians to follow.

Steve move up to the microphone and began to sing.

fragrance

Her sleep was fitfull; her mind full of strange symbols. Turning over she opened her eyes. Maria lifted her head and sniffed the air. There was that fragrance again. Breathing out her breath swirled in front of her like a smokey cloud. It was so cold in the room, she shivered. She felt silky fingers brush her skin. “Who’s there?” she whispered.

“Frogs legs, and spinach, eye of newt and cat whisker.” Lody stir the brew while mumbling the spell. Steam rose in wispy tendrils from the black cauldron.
The pills were taking effect, and Lody was living the part.

controller

The engine pulled out of the yard, steam rising from its funnel like a smokey haze. “We’re off” cried the driver
“Hooray,” echoed the passengers.
“About time too said a stern looking man. “No thanks to the Controller. He took his time sorting things out.”

suicide

She wiped the tears away with the back of her hand. I gave him everything. Why did he do this? she thought. Another sob escaped her lips as she pulled herself up from the ground. I shall kill myself. He’ll be sorry then. It will say suicide in all the papers. But before I do, some chocolate I think. Lanie hurried across the road and into Bartie’s Sweet Shop.

jelly

i am locked in space,
living a squiggly, relentless,
ridiculous pace:
it is stupid that i am in such a sticky,
sickly sweet place.

dropped

we let go,
set this down (forcefully:
it’s not easy to put this away without intention).
it fractured, we fractured,
you broke up with me
but i had dropped us long before.

rocket

The light flash across the dark sky. “What was that?” said Emily squinting towards the heavens.
“I dunno, it was so fast. Look over there!” said Jan, pointing.
“Yes, I see it. It’s heading this way.
“Is it a rocket? It looks like one”
Emily sucked in a sharp breath. “No it’s the tail of a meteor and it’s coming straight at us!”

furnace

he was a hot furnace,
burning with energy and burning time and energy
to stay so;
self-destructive and self-creating,
he kept
me warm.

phrase

It was a strange phrase but it kept repeating itself over and over again in her mind. Now if only she could remember where she had heard it. She knew it was of importance, the key to something, but what? that was the question.

route

What is the route to the place where they serve purple ice cream? I would like some but I don’t know where to go! I have a sweet tooth, you see, and we have nothing sweet at home.

library

The library is where we find kings and paupers alike, and each one is richer than i. Each one is solid, defined, and will last longer than my years. The library gives them the shelter they need. I beg and yearn for the means to live, while they are unthreatened.

split

The gang huddled together on the corner of the small street. Bob looked cagily around him. “We all got the plan right now?” he asked in a low voice.
“Sure,” replied Stan and Jo.
“I’m not sure about this,” said Bret. “No one will get hurt will they?”
“Not if you do what I say.” Bob sniffed and wiped a dirty sleeve across his nose. “Okay lets split.”
The gang dispersed; the men hurrying away like scattered leaves.

mythology

I have often wondered about those mythology tales and whether or not there is some substance to them. But yesterday when I look towards the sky and saw a dragon swooping through the clouds, I squeezed my eyes shut, then opened them again. Draconis lives!

obvious

Well, it’s not obvious to me. I can’t see why the others can’t see it. Are they blind? How can I convince them that the visitors are not human?

Well, it wasn’t obvious to me at all. It just didn’t add up. How come everyone around me just didn’t see it. Were they blind? I didn’t know how to convince them that these visitors were not human.

wrong

nono, believe me,
everything is going well
[all is fine and dandy],
and for the first time in years
this is the truth:
bold and clean,
awakened and sharp!
i am in love with
him, the world, my friends,
the way things are sunshiny on the darkest days.
have i lost my mind? or rather,
have i found it again?
