• She was old. Her dog was old. Her house was old. Everything about the woman was just, old. Whenever we talked all I could do was stare at her cheeks, the way the hung from her cheekbones like, like, well they hung the only way old cheeks can! It gave me the willies.

  • I was falling. Down down down. It wasn’t like in dreams where your heart skips but you wake up on the other side of the world. In your bed. Alive. I was going down. The frigid air stung my cheeks, and my tears flew upward as I went down. I screamed and wondered if anyone could hear.

  • The man who stands over my shoulder
    He is dressed in black
    I trust he knows the way
    As I watch his back

    He leads me through the dessert
    The road of dusty death
    I know my adviser well
    A cloaked and hollow chest

  • The thought continued to bump around in the back of my head. Like an annoying little brother to whom had been given one of those obnoxious foam fingers with #1 slapped on in cheap paint. I pushed it away, even […]

  • She always wondered what it would be like to step on a lump of jelly. Like mud maybe?
    There was never any opportunity to answer the question. I mean, who buys a can of jelly and pours it into a large bowl just so […]

  • Carefully he dumped the last of the water out of the can and onto the flowers. It had been hot and dry, he swore the flowers visibly straightened. Someone rode by on their bicycle. His first instinct was to duck, […]
