  • "I told you so."

    Rocks slip underfoot. Soft and warm, soothing water laps at my toes, pulls at my heart. The sunset glances off the water, sends stones of light skipping off the surface. Below… who knows what is below. But the surface looks perfect. Maybe that...

  • Sunset

  • The World Closed its Eye

    The eyelids slowly close on the world to the dark behind them, and those who are still awake play in the dreams of The Creation. Those who sleep dream with it, of the eye on the other side. As we close our eyes, we assume they are the same, the lids sl...

  • Lectures, Distractions, and Secretions

    “…considerations of the metaphysical must never be given undo precedence in the face of the mythical…” Thaddeus droned on and on, as he always did. Lenora’s mind began to wander, as it often did. The slanting rays of the s...

    “You think we should maybe take off?” Mischa asked as Ben closed the door behind him. Mischa sat on the stone steps, her sun dress blowing in the warm breeze. “I’ve never seen them blow up like this before.” Ben sat down c...

  • The Setting Sun

    “You sure you want to do this?” my friend says to me as we walk. “Yes I am very sure,” I nod and look ahead. The spring breeze plays at my hair and the sun gleams on my face as it begins to set. I breathe slowly and evenly to ke...

  • Spare a Little Hope

    “Hello Ms….” Another door is slammed in my face, the force shaking a slight coat of dust off its crude wooden surface. No one will listen. What are they so scared of? They obviously aren’t scared of disintegrating. I walk through th...

  • A Sunset to Remember.

  • The Everman

    The sun ran over everything in sight. An oppressive heat poured over anyone brave enough to venture out during the daylight hours. Even the lizards, so common this far into the Mexican desert, were nowhere to be seen. The droning of locusts made the op...

  • One Way to Derail a Conversation

    Sunset cast a rolling sea of smoke and smog in hellish oranges and yellows. Denton smiled, as he felt oddly at home. Errol disrupted the reverie, “Mind the cargo ship at 10:30. Looks like he aims to cut across.” The ship looked more like a ...

    He is a blue man who has never fallen in love. Tell no one. Bury him next to his mother, in a hillside sloping west, below a bench for two. He is just her son. Just her son will do.

  • Idyllic Resting Place

    I seen a varmint the other day, dead and pretty mean tore up underneath a bush. The sunlight hit it just so, flitting through all the leaves and flowers, lovely pink flowers that had shed a blanket of pink on the mess. Something about it struck me as p...
