  • The Silence is Deafening

    I starred off into the distance, refusing to meet my mother’s gaze. She had some strange look in her eyes. She wasn’t upset, or mad, she was disappointed. Disappointed in me. I was very shy, while you could call my own mother a social butte...

  • The Choice of Flight

    So my fist met his face, and I almost felt the need to apologize, like someone might if a dog jumped on a neighbor. I’m so sorry, I don’t know what my fist was doing. It never behaves like this. It won’t happen again. But was I sorry?...

  • The Cadillac

    I was driving on the freeway today when I noticed a man hanging out next to his old, beaten-to-hell Cadillac on the shoulder. Nothing new to me; everyone has an old car that breaks down these days. In fact, I was actually off to fix my own piece of shi...

  • Mother Nature

    I was awaken by the sound of the rain. Thunder from afar lit up the skies. The roads flooded, cars pulled over to the sides. Screams of terror from a distance, indicting they were stranded in the flash flood. The phone started to ring only just a momen...

  • Blue Bug

    We got to his car and he opened the door for me. I was always jealous of his car. It was an original blue bug. It was crappy and old, but it had character. I got in the seat and closed the door. He walked around to the driver’s side and got in. W...

  • What Is It?

    I turned and stared at him, “I don’t know, I just got drunk to have a good time.” “Normally, that would be a fine answer Andy, but I know you and you have been acting weird all night.” “Jake, listen to me. I just got...

  • Riding with a Ghost

    I drove. He talked. That’s the way I remember it. I’d picked him up by the side of a long, straight, dusty road in the back end of beyond. Everything he owned lived a small, green knapsack that he slung over one shoulder, except for a batte...

  • Road Trip

    I am speeding down the highway, in my motor: I should mention there’s a dragon in the tailpipe, and the devil’s in the engine. Reclining in my bucket seat, the roads a’flying by, and the hills and woods are looming; up above, a starry...

  • Back to the Car

    We stood there for a couple seconds in the hug. I was trying to decide if it was awkward or sweet. I decided awkward and stepped away. “Ok well, this has been fun and all but I’m freezing.” He looked really dissappointed. I was a litt...

  • Car Trouble
