  • Still Dead

  • Nightwatch

    My city screams like a dame who is getting her purse snatched. I grab at the rope stitching holding my arm to the stub and pull, tightening the fit. “I’ll be right with you, dollface.” I say. My voice is low and gravely, but she’s used to i...

  • Ghost Story

    When I wake up, she’s sitting on the edge of the bed. Same short skirt and fuck me pumps. Same black eye and trickle of blood. Same look of resigned defeat. Same silent tears. I decide to try something different this time. I move over and sit nex...

  • Giving Up Her Dead

    I saw my first dead body tonight. Twenty odd years I was able to avoid it, which is probably some kind of statistical achievement in itself. I was on the shore, beyond the boardwalk, past the lights that were winking off now that the tourists had gone ...

    We all felt it. Every single last one of us. The shock, the disbelief, the horror of it all. Whether it was sympathy for someone you knew, or the sadness you felt for the man himself. Me? Personally, it hit me like a sack of bricks. I’m not old e...

  • Bumps

    I was setting up a new playlist on my iPod when it happened the first time. It was an old man. I remember noticing his cardigan, like the ones Mr. Rogers wore, when his body bounced over the hood of my car. I stopped long enough to make sure no one had...
