  • Stairway To A Pool Party

    I place the soul on my shoulder, and it immediately begins to whine. Not such a great idea. We arrive at the nearest river, a few kilometres away. When I’m on business I get a company car, full of complementary wines and champagnes to make the so...

  • Unrecognized Life?

    I stepped once more out of the safety of my rocket out on to the alien landscape. To my surprise the crunchy surface from before was now smooth. It wasn’t for a decent walk till I heard the familiar crunchy squeaking sounds under my feet. I bent down...

  • The Fan

    I watched her face, it was a deer in headlights, but with a twinge of, “I can’t believe this is happening!” I love that. Not that people should be excited to see me, I could care less. It’s the fact that a song I wrote years ago...

  • Tractors and Lost Children

    The bright afternoon sun barely penetrated the overlapping branches of the pine trees. The forest was dense and even though there was no wind, a cold chill permeated it. I rubbed my arms for warmth as I ventured deeper. “Charlie!” I called ...

  • What Happened in the Tunnel?

    One. Two. Three. Four. Four times. Enough. He dropped the rock and it hit the ground with a thud. The noise echoed down the tunnel, amplifying slowly as it traveled. But he was the only one who heard it. He was, after all, the only person in the area. ...
