Monstrous Act

In frozen terror, her quavering plea could barely be heard, “Oh, surely you wouldn’t harm a tiny thing like me,” she squeaked. The evil grin split its gnarled snout to reveal jagged razor teeth. Moist, fetid breath accompanied the voice of shattered stones, grinding and hollow as from the very Pit i...

Like we need another reminder

Another tax day come and gone.
As sure as death, they say.
But death does not go, my friend. It only comes.
Oh yes, it comes.

Episode 33 1/3 - Uh, no hope

Armored and helmeted, he strode into the command room, flowing cape emphasizing his inhuman presence. With stentorian breaths he gave each officer orders; which they meekly accepted, knowing their fate should they fail. “Any questions?” echoed his final challenge. The young nephew of the Baron of Ta...

Ready or Not

Wait, not yet. I’m so close. I almost have it all figured out.

Ha, that’s a good one, said Someone, or Something, or No one.

Numbers Game

Looking up from the Sudoku puzzle, he blinks, still seeing grids. “Playing too long,” he thinks, “need a break.” Two steps toward the kitchen he abruptly runs into an invisible barrier. “What the…?” he gasps. Stretching his arms, he feels the same blockage, left, right, and behind. Above floats a so...

"I'm here about the watch collection ad?"

He smiles, "That's a beauty you have on. It's in the basement... you go first."

I smell my widow's perfume as she leans close.
Knowing her secret joy even as she sobs regrets.
I can only await the flame.

Deep Winter

Outside a frozen splendor
While inside fire crackles & freezer hums
Full until spring
When shallow digging is possible

Chuck's Story

They came at dawn
Dragged me from leaden slumber
Thrust me into searing brightness
And demanded, CAN YOU SEE YOUR SHADOW

Brief. Any & all of us.
WHY? To what crazy purpose?
Only because.
So, despair? No, make something happen. Roll the bones.

The forensics man looked up from the nudist colony bench and frowned.

The Old Rugged Cross

We sang a sad song
Her family cried
On the chorus SHE joined in
Explained as escaping gas
But I swear her harmony was dead on

No Picnic

He lopes down the cottage path to scrabble the threshold
Red barely hears Granny's trembling sigh
The wolf is at the door

She checked her supplies
Hammer, visqueen, duct tape, box cutter
All set
Smiling, she raised her phone and swiped right

What an honor to have my drabble read by Norm. And the narration and sound effects really brought it to life. Great job.

“Now, who will help me EAT the bread?” “I will!” said Pig. “I will!” said Duck. “I will!” said Cow. “No,” said Little Red Hen, “I’ll eat it all myself.” The other animals hung their heads.

Is it my fault I held no faith?
I led a good life.
Have I no chance to get in?

Memory's the first to go

Oh, it tickles, she giggled
The octogenarian vampire groaned
Forgotten dentures again
Once more he'd gummed things up
