  • A Run of Bad Luck

    My dad didn’t admit it to me until my 40th, but by then I’d already figured it out. I mean, come on — that kind of bad luck is no coincidence, even though I’d tried for a damn long time to write it off that way. 5th birthday. My...

  • Disease

    So let me just say that the woman on the couch with her tongue down my dad’s throat was nothing like my mother. She had straggely oily blonde hair and a muffin top from trying to squeeze herself into what looked to be clothes from American Eagle ...

  • What It Could Be (Mature)

    Half-drunk and wholely-stoned Darren fumbled with the lock. He paused to scratch indecently, not that any of the neighbors gave a crap at 2 AM. Who gave a crap about anything at this hour, he thought to himself. Shrugging off the suspicion that the itc...

  • Inside/Outside (Mature)

    She was short, and insane, and her tongue was like a big dark snake in his mouth. She writhed under him, her denim-sheathed legs locked on his back. Each fruitless thrust was met with a groan of lust, or frustration. Or some ill-spawned, guttural child...

  • False Gods
