Sparrow Bones

“Put a little treat in the box” she whispered. “You have to wait, sparrow will be nervous. Hunger will draw him in. He’s greedy, sooooo greedy.” I felt around in the darkness, stumbling until my hand touched a wall. I groped around for an exit but found none. I sat down, frustrated and exhausted. “L...

Bug Waterpark

The party had begun. Silverfish slid down the side of the tub, picking speed and then spinning out into the middle of the porcelain. Roach was already there, splashing around in the small pools of water. Centipede dropped off the ceiling and floated gently down. Life was good as they chased each oth...

Into the Hot Pot

Into the hot pot goes the lamb, so young and full of promise. Next goes the potato, spiteful and defiant to the end. The lotus root looks at me pleadingly, but it’s to no avail. The quail eggs are unable to protest, but I hear a mournful chirp as they tumble into the pot. It’s down to the rice noodl...

Two Turtles, a Rat, and a Worm

Two turtles, a rat, and a worm blasted skyward leaving the ground behind. The turtles immediately began arguing, each one claiming that he was in charge. The worm slithered back and forth, oblivious to the situation. The rat scurried off, desperately trying to locate an escape before the rocket reac...

Buffalo Soldier

The buffalo beside him snorted fiercely, balancing a rifle precariously between its front hooves. From their hastily dug trench they scanned the battle-scarred field, wondering if their enemy would attack again. Wolves had secretly militarized last year and caught humanity unawares. As the pack won ...

Shower Rocket

I was in my shower as it blasted off and rocketed skyward. Bursting through my roof, we barreled down Connecticut Avenue, gaining both altitude and speed. Soon we approached the Washington Monument, barely high enough to avoid collision. Strangely, the water in my shower continued to run. Soaring hi...

Oyster Shoes

I slowly inserted my feet into the oyster shoes, squirming as their greasy bodies rubbed up against my skin. Once on the oyster shoes were surprisingly form fitting, creating a slimy seal around both feet. How these oysters stayed together, in shoe form no less, was a mystery to me. “How do those fi...

Mr. Gurka

The small meteor plunged through the sky, shattering the branch of a tree and slamming into my above ground swimming pool. The water began boiling away and within minutes the pool was empty. I walked up to the edge, peered in and saw a small sphere glowing the most indiscernible shade of violent, ho...

Trapped

He grabbed for the wall as the ground shook violently underneath. Stumbling out of the house into a ferocious blizzard, he was buffeted in all directions and blinded by stinging cold ice. “I have to get out of here or I’ll die.” He sprinted down a road that led out of the village. Suddenly, he smack...

A Marcus on my Wall

A small Marcus crawled up the wall next to me. Above it two other Marcuses lingered. Suddenly, the Marcuses began cooing in union and ferociously vibrating their centipede-like bodies. Other Marcuses responded to the call, emerging from cracks and crevices around my room. “Is it time honored Marci?”...

Tom’s Mayonnaise

Tom opened the refrigerator and grabbed the jar of mayonnaise for his baloney sandwich. It was an old jar, but he wasn’t picky. He screwed off the lid and peered inside. A small pterodactyl looked questioningly up at him. Tom thought for a while about how best to remove the pterodactyl from his mayo...

Goodbye Grandma

The rain thrashed against the hikers. A sudden storm had upended a tranquil day hiking through the forest. “I know a way to stop the rain,” she said softly as they took shelter under a gargantuan maple tree. Out of her pocket emerged a small silver figurine, etched intricately to show the face of an...

Hello, Rash

“Greetings!” said the rash, flaring a dark purple to signal its affection. Nick looked down at the piece of burning crimson skin stretched around his ankle and meekly uttered a reply. “Uhhhmm, hello. What are you doing on my leg?” The rash ignored his question and proceeded to speak. “Since we’ll be...

A Drinking Contest

I looked across the table at my opponent, a twelve-foot tall alien that was arachnid and fungus in equal proportion. Surrounding us were throngs of rugged and bizarre creatures, hissing in delight and urging on the competition. I gathered my courage and gulped down the frothy green mixture in my cup...

The Horror under Himeji

Beneath Himeji Castle a grim pact was made. Allied bombers would soon return and turn the Castle and surrounding city into fire, ash and death. “Someone must follow Okiku down the well and ask her spirit to protect the castle.” There are many terrible ways to die, but few are worse than plummeting i...
