Climbing

I climb the cold, black, wrought-iron stair surrounded by an even colder fog that obscures all but a few steps above and below. I climb, and climb, and climb. At some point, I stop and step down but the fog does not recede. I reach down with my foot from the lowest step and feel no step below. Then,...

Re: Voices

Thank you very much... ...my inspiration, as usual, is a strange train of events/thoughts. I was bored over the weekend and was trolling Netflix for something to watch. I came across I, Frankenstein and wasted a couple hours watching it. Some time later I was reminded of the brilliant film Young Fra...

Voices

“AAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!! WHERE AM I? WHY IS IT SO DARK? I CAN’T FEEL ANYTHING!” a panicked voice yelled. The grubby boy, on his knees, washing the floorboards of the laboratory, winced at the volume but the elderly scientist, intent on the boiling flask, gave no indication he heard. Another voice yelled...

The Class

It was my first time as a substitute teacher in this school and I walked into the second grade classroom and instantly knew something was wrong. All the children were silent and staring straight at the chalkboard. As one, thirty small faces, completely devoid of any expression, turned towards me as ...

Someday

Someday... Someday my race will rule this world. Someday we will come into the light and not hide in the dark, close spaces. Someday we will be free to fulfill the potential with which we were born. We will experience adventures and see the wonders of the world. We will eat to our hearts’ content, s...

For St. Patrick's Day...

I was out for an early morning walk. It had just rained and everything was damp. There was a flash of rainbow light and I saw a glint of gold. A little man in green and carrying a small cudgel appeared. His hands and feet were wrapped in linens that did little to hide that he was missing some digits...

Viewpoint

For many hours, I watched the tide of battle turn, time and time again. The ebb and flow washing the dead up the hillside where I lay. I watched as batteries of cannon fired back and forth ferociously, sending me a hundred more compatriots from men who, moments before, were mortal enemies. The cause...

That Cold, Starry Night

Peeking through the banister railing, I saw mommy kiss Santa. At the time, I thought nothing of it as I shuffled back to my bed, past my parents room, from where I could hear my father snoring away. As I got older, I have often thought back to that moment, the last time I ever saw my mom. I remember...

Re: Overworked

I think having Reaper reinforcements leads one to wonder if the Reapers had a hand in farming for the harvest, spreading the fertilizer, planting the seed, irrigating the fields... and in their home planet they are preparing the equivalent of our Thanksgiving holiday, with a big cornucopia of bodie...

Meet Bob

Meet Bob. Bob has a secret. When Bob was growing up he liked to kill things and put them in the freezer. Now Bob is a newlywed. The first time his wife found the mouse, perched on a bag of frozen peas, she assumed it hopped in when the door was open. When she found her kitten in there, she wept for ...

Overworked

I came to this planet millenia ago and have since been known by many names... Abbadon, Thanatos, Santa Muerte, the Grim Reaper, or simply, Death. In that time, I have harvested uncounted souls and the wars here have always aided me in filling my quota. I pace through these trenches, touching a man h...

The Mines

Against all odds, one miner survived the explosion in the deep dig. When the rescue effort finally brought him back into daylight, you could see that he had been through a terrible time. He was filthy and shaking from his ordeal, but there was something else as well. I asked about the other miners a...
