They told her drowning was peaceful.

It wasn’t.

alive

If there is anything to be learned,

from this rush of glitter and golden light,

it is that one should always wait

just one more moment

before tying that rope.

asthma

She gasped and rolled over, her hands reaching out into the night sky, touching swirling stars.

So this was what it meant to be mortal.

dehydrated

The second her lips touched his, he was nothing but sand on the wind.

Falling through the cracks between her fingers.

Sprinkling over her shoes like one last pleading kiss.

modem

The inventor shrunk backwards from the smoking wires and felt a sob rise in his throat.

She broke.

motion

They wrestled the gun from the assassin’s hand too late.

He had already fallen to the ground.

Fallen as quickly as she had fallen in love with him.

His blood as red as her lipstick.

distributor

The little white boxes were stacked in neat rows on the table.

“They’re guaranteed,” said the slick voice.

“You promise it won’t hurt?”

“Oh, no. It’ll be just like going to sleep.”

dwell

She was inside the fire.

The fire, likewise, was inside of her.

minute

2:00.

His hair was messy.

His eyes were blue.

And the baby was laughing.

2:01.

The car was totaled.

His hands were red.

And the sirens were very loud.

keen

“I know exactly what I want,” he said, leaning across the table.

The three men in suits cringed backwards. One of them lifted a quivering hand.

“Put the gun down and we’ll talk.”

He laughed, high-pitched for a boy his age.

cathedral

The stained glass windows were illuminated, glowing orange from the fires raging outside.

He felt the small hand close around his wrist. Squeeze. Then grow limper.

And then came the whisper.

“What are you afraid of?”

brief

They kissed precisely once.

After that, it rained every single day.

grind

“I don’t even know your name. Who are you?”

“I’m your favourite song. That’s all you need to know.”

jelly

“Why do you call me that?”

“I have to rename everything. Otherwise I can’t fall in love.”

She smirked. “Oh, I see.”

cap

He turned and smiled, one of those peaked soldier’s hats perched at a boyish angle on his head. Folded his arms over his chest. Smirked.

“And you said I’d never make anything of my life.”

reporter

Tell everyone that I am in love.

Tell them that we don’t care what they say.

Tell them she’s got a dress that’s white as snow and a sixpence in her shoe.

Tell them exactly how much her eyes are shining.

pile

“Take it,” he said, shoving it forward with two hands. “Give to them and they won’t bother you again.”

It gleamed softly in the dim overhead light, golden.

Her lip curled. “You keep it.”

In the next second, he was slumped over it, turning every last coin red.

separate

They wouldn’t dare.

The dark-haired girl smoothed a loose strand of blonde hair back from her companion’s forehead.

There was, of course, a way to get what they wanted. People died every day.

poster

Let’s hang it up.
Red. Bright. Shining.
Everyone will know this, my sweet girl.
As the future is ours, so you shall be my future.

popcorn

Firecracker babe
Lighting up the theatre with her
Bright eyes, sparkler hips

blast

The room shook and the table cracked.

Everything was torn up.

And when the phone rang in the serene office building miles away, he already knew.

loss

He stood before the great fire and watched it devour until there was nothing left but ashes.

The sleek hair, the familiar jacket, the limp hands. It all burned.

He had to keep reminding himself that the body was not alive.

Likewise, he had to keep reminding himself that he was.

medical

She was not that sort of a doctor.

Rather, she generally made it her business to cause people to require the services of that sort of a doctor.

It was all good business, of course.

gallery

There were more paintings in there than could ever be imagined.

One for every time she was terrified, but lived anyhow.

curse

They never could quite decide whether it was a curse or not.

“Either it is or it isn’t,” said the little one, big eyes flashing.

“Why can’t it be both?” asked the dreamer, tousled hair falling into his eyes. “You’re still pretty, you know.”

“Mmm, and so are you.”

balloon

It was a red balloon, because red had been their colour.

They viewed everything in terms of what had been theirs, once upon a time.

And out of the green of the forest, into the blue of the sky, they let the balloon go and watched it until it looked smaller than they felt.

chief

They always called him that.

Even after he’d reincarnated too many times to be recognizable.

playground

He was one of those eternally youthful types, and he remained so. Even in the dark alleyways and then, further along, behind the prison walls. The bars reminded him of a jungle gym that he’d climbed, ages ago. Everything was a playground, after all.

preoccupied

She had enough on her mind. Then all of a sudden, she had too much, and her skull was cracking. If there was a moral to the story, it was pay attention, pay attention. Everything slips away as soon as you aren’t looking at it any longer. Even children. Even life.

port

She was beautiful. He outlined the bones in her cheeks and hung an egg in the sky above her head, an everlasting symbol of what she meant to him. Fertility. Birth. Newness. Mother even though she had given him no children.
