I guess this will do.

  1. I haven't heard that in a while.

    I missed you guys. I think there’s a flood of really bad writing heading towards this site in the very near future. Brace for impact.

  2. Severed Nerves

    The man stood over the landscaper, wielder of butcher knives towards dogs and the unarmed, and his mind flooded with blinding rage. Fireworks popped in the sky. Music was playing from an open window somewhere on the street. He raised the machete and hi...

  3. Fences

    The property had a rod iron fence that was fifteen feet high on the side of the yard which bordered the street. Shorter, much less sturdy, chain-link fences separated the elaborately landscaped mansion from the neighbors on either side. Neighbors, hope...

  4. How the Macho Man Ended the Apocalypse

    On the ethereal plane of the afterlife, the armies of Heaven and the legions of Hell were preparing for battle. Harold Camping was right. The rapture would be soon, May 21st, and the few remaining days of Earth would be hellish for those left behind. A...

  5. Chess

    Most of the crowd didn’t speak the language but they got the vague idea. The man on the platform was angry and defiant. It didn’t matter. The trapdoor swung open and the tyrant fell. A six foot drop and a snap of rope pulling taut. A wet cr...

  6. Temptation

    I was on a bald mountain top that wasn’t marked on the Union map. The sun was stabbing down through a ceiling of silvery clouds like blazing swords from Heaven to make the valley below shine in patches of yellow light. My horse fidgeted behind me...

  7. Monster

    He slumped down in the hardwood chair and stared at his feet. “Mr. Bathe, would you like to answer the question?” “I’m sorry, what was the question?” “Could the stenographer repeat the question for the defendant,R...

  8. Glow Paint

    The firefly which had inspired Barry in his last ragged breaths of depressant fueled death flew in lazy random arcs through the gradually darkening sky. It carried itself with fluttering wings and flashing torso over grassy summer fields to slalom betw...

  9. The Prairie

    Endless yellow plains stretched away from the cars until the dry prairie grass met with the pale blue void of a sky. The western horizon was home to a faded line of mountains that seemed like a jagged purple wall separating the Midwest from the West. T...

  10. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Later on, when the paramedics had revived him, the doctors had released him, the cops had interrogated him, the court system had absolved him, the press had interviewed him, the media had sensationalized him, the bartenders had comped him, the women ha...

  11. They don't come in packs of two.

    “Stopping power?” “Yeah,” the shop owner said, “stopping power. You won’t need many of these to get the job done.” “I think I only need two,” I said to him. “Well, they come in boxes of twenty...

  12. A familiar path. (Mature)

  13. The Ultimate Chronicle- Part 48

    Rasputin hovered over the immobilized Lincoln as dark clouds began to spiral above him. Lightning flashed in the unnatural sky to violently strike the battle-scarred earth. The ghoulish legions of the Necromacht shambled across the landscape to witness...

  14. Henry and his Head Injury

    You were leaning over the edge of the subway platform to see if the rat that was scuttling around the filthy tracks would be crushed by the train which collided with your skull. When you woke up, fifteen operations and thirty-six months later, math was...

  15. Toe the line

    He swayed in the icy wind gusts. His watch slid down his forearm while he stretched his hands into the gray sky. Feeling the numb cold of the coming storm in his toes, he edged them forward across the ledge until they wiggled above nothing. The city li...

  16. A Cold Life.

    Walk these lonely roads of concrete and asphalt, see the ones who suffer stroll beside those at fault. “Come here,” they say, “where parties never end,” drink deeply from a wealthy stream which doesn’t bend. You run towa...

  17. Bridge Wine (Mature)

  18. Spinning (Mature)

  19. Under a Beautiful Sky

    Ned stared up at the heavens and his mouth fell open. “It’s gorgeous,” he said with his eyes locked in place. “Hmm. I guess it is kind of beautiful,” Sharon said as she followed his gaze. “I didn’t think it wou...

  20. This is for the people who died, died. (Mature)

  21. Let there be darkness, please.

    Davey stood with his back to the fire and scanned the woods. His ears struggled to pinpoint the location of the infant wailing. The shifting floor of the forest was in front of him and then beside him. The hair stood up on his neck as he tried to keep ...

  22. Steam from a shower. (Mature)

  23. St. Isidore's

    St. Isidore’s wasn’t some old Gothic cathedral or early Colonial masonry marvel like you might expect. It was a simple wooden church with a cheap brass steeple which had long since tarnished to a puke colored green. St. Isidore’s was ...

  24. That damn dog.

    The green meadow was littered with bits of white clay and spent brass casings by the time the kid had finished. His mind was full of boulders and spinning white discs. His memory was crowded with the crunching sounds of the sledgehammer and the report ...

  25. From the New Mountains to the Old.

    It’s a long stretch of road that runs between the Rockies and the Appalachians. A full day’s drive no matter which way you take. If you exceed the speed limit, minimize your time at gas stations and have a fondness for sleep deprivation, yo...

  26. Identification

    “…he’s right through here,” the doctor said as he swept the pea green curtains away from the bed. She had been waiting so long to see him again that she hesitated to look. Her mind filled with images of her missing husband. Mrs....

  27. Comments should come with wrapping paper. (Mature)

  28. Cortex Command

    I had lost my left arm in a salvo of automatic cannon fire while crossing the green fields surrounding this bunker complex. Thank the Great Programmers for deciding ambidexterity was important. Under a hail of high explosive rocket fire, I found myself...

  29. The Lesson.

    The United States of America is in decline, in case y’all hadn’t heard. It’s all over the television set, plastered on every page of the internet, written on the front page of every paper with the ink still wet and that’s the on...

  30. The rearview mirror.

    I’m in the driver’s seat. I always have been. Anyone who thinks any different is delusional. There are no passengers in the road of life. Keep your eyes on the road ahead. That’s the key. Your hands are on the wheel and you’re d...
