  • Spoiled Milk Milkshakes

    She stood there in front of the mirror in her itsy-bisty, teeny-weeny, yellow polka dot bikini. She hadn’t worn it since the summer 0f 1950, when she had been 18 years old and into the rebellious stuff. Truth be told, she had forgotten all about ...

  • Moving parts

    The coffee shop across the plaza had looked warm and inviting from her window. A pink and blue neon sign, that she’d not quite been able to make out hung in the steamed window, from which yellow light poured warmly onto the shiny, rain drenched c...

    The Maiden sprinted through the forest, her Maidenly bosom heaving. She paused when she thought she was far enough away and put on her clothing. “Honestly!” She huffed to herself with Maidenly indignation. “Can’t a young girl ta...

  • A clearing in the Forest (Mature)

  • All Bottled Up

    There was a knock at my door. I didn’t appreciate it. I pulled myself up off the couch, cursed quietly that I was just getting comfortable, and sauntered over to the door. The knocking continued in an urgent fashion. I opened the door and saw a w...

  • Surprise!

    I hate him, sometimes. “Can’t we please find a better way, John?” I pleaded. He revved the engine on the bike. It roared like an angry animal. “I like this way.” “But it’s dangerous! And stupid!” I pointe...

  • Passing Notes

    In the three weeks since she’d wandered into the coffee shop, she’d grown quite accustomed to the rhythms of the place. Breakfast and lunch were intense and the evenings ran on forever, it seemed. Regulars greeted her by name, and she was n...

  • Anniversary

  • The Final Decision

    He looks at the metal monster sitting on the table in front of him. He doesn’t want to touch it or even go near it lest he do something stupid. Taking a deep, trembling breath, he continues to stare at it. It sneers at him, daring him to do it. T...

  • Laying on the Floor

    On the bare floor of the now cleared out apartment, Valarie lay as still as she could. Her clothes had felt cumbersome and false, projections of assumed expectations, so she shed them. The fan circled lazily doing little more than giving urgency to the...

  • Broken down

  • Last Unanswered Question

    I took a deep breath, and plunged my head under. The cool water was soothing, the green-brown a safety net. I looked for myself. Where was I? Images flashed into my brain. It was like my heart didn’t want me to forget. My mother smiling, my siste...
