  1. Restless Guest

    So it was my turn to be the host family for our newest visitor from the Intergalactic Unity Councel and I was beginning to think my cat Frizzle was right about this guy. My family consisted of me and Frizzle, who sat at a distance from our guest and st...

  2. For The Money~ Version I

    Jonas coasted through the early evening traffic, through the tourists and buskers crowding the sidewalks downtown. He adjusted his balance to accomodate the weight of the banjo strapped to his back. At the river he popped off his skateboard and carrie...

  3. Arabesque, Suggest, Acquiesce Version II

    The canvas she presented was not unpleasant-in his years as a tattoo artist he’d rested his arm on many a toosh while plying his art just above the thong line. Trouble was, there was this person attached with no clear idea of what she wanted. ...

  4. Morning Woods

    I choose a different deer path this morning through the old pasture. Cedars were the first to claim the hill, their thick bodies now struggling for their share of the sky. Even the locusts are giving way to hardwoods and young beeches, shivering in the...

  5. Is It Over Yet?!

    Getting out of bed in winter is such a cruel task for the likes of me…big warm dog, happy to sleep close, cat purring right into my ear. Only the siren call of coffee and cream and a view of the hillsides pulls me to my feet where snug slippers w...

  6. Love is watching someone die (version III)

    Watching your final breath unfold And wing away From the cocoon of this DNA That you left in me too Your humors Your wit The curve of your smile And your love of love Your legacy, I could let you go Without rising To scoop you up In my net of need...

  7. Between The Strings: Version I

    The space between the strings was where the hidden notes lay. She could hear them vibrate as she moved up the neck and she tried to capture them in her mind for later. Maybe to write a compilation based on visceral harmonies, not notes woven among the ...

  8. Sylwin Stirs

    “Roomie, have you taken out the trash yet?” “You are obviously standing in the kitchen so you know I haven’t, I’ll do it soon. I’M WRITING HERE!” A roll of the eyes and a slam of the back door and he knew she w...

  9. Sylwin

    Light slipped through the ragged sky to reveal the beast sleeping on the forest floor. The birds reserved their morning’s chatter, flitting and hopping softly through the branches to determine what manner of threat this might possibly be. Golden ...

  10. Lady Tor

    A bloom of fear rose in his eyes. “The dead walk the tideline between this world and the next” she said. “Didn’t you know, Captain?”. As he gazed down at the rose he held in his hand it began to curl and wither. He pulled ...

  11. Styx

    “It’s not just about leaving the ketsup bottle out again!” she said, “It’s the words, everywhere the words-in the pantry, in the hall closet, you’ve painted every hidden wall with blackboard paint and covered them wi...
