Taillights

It wasn’t until that first car disappeared into the darkness that we all started to grow concerned. Usually, a car will simply fade into darkness as it leaves the ambient light, but in this case there was no gradual vanishing of the red taillights, more an immediate blankness where the car had once ...

Farmer's Favorite Meal

“Grilled Cheese,” Mr. Farmer began, his voice grizzled with age and too many cigarettes, “is the best thing to be invented by man in the past century. You may think it was TV, or radio, or even the automobile; or in-door plumbing but you’d be wrong.” He gently flipped the sandwich in the cast iron p...

Suburbia

Night fell over the small town and the streets slowly emptied. Children returned to their homes, taking the lively sounds of play with them, and soon everything was silent. There was no true sense of calm. It was like the town was built upon a thin layer of ice; even the slightest crack could sink i...

Reflected

As I watched my reflection in the TV screen I found myself marveling at the physical changes I had undergone in recent weeks. Everyone had said that there would be a loss of weight, but I never imagined it would be so much, or so fast. My cheeks and eyes were sunken and dark; my chin had become a po...

Re: Knock Knock

Thanks everyone for your comments. I actually wrote this version first, then rewrote it as Knock and, finding that I liked the second version better, posted it first then promptly forgot about this one until i was looking through my file. I retitled it as the above title, and decided to post it as a...

Surrounded

A dozen geese surrounded the car, their heads lowered and their feathers ruffled, they were ready for a fight. It was hard to tell if they had a concept of what stood before them, but they were standing their ground. The driver had made a very wrong turn and entered the small dirt road without reali...

Knock Knock

When I looked back I could see that it was still there; still coming; still hungry. I pounded on the door and called out to anyone who may be inside…No answer…Never an answer… Moving on to the next door in the complex of row house I repeat the process, each time with a bit more fervor, and a lot les...

A Problem of Math

Johnny thought hard about the situation before him: 2 trains…different stations…different speeds… Who cares when they’re going to meet? If they did, he knew the outcome would be destruction and carnage. People would die in the flaming wreck, and that’s all that really mattered at the end of the day....

About a Girl

That’s why I’m here. The actual process of getting in was much easier than I had imagined. From the arrest until now, not more than a few days had passed. Time enough for a patient man. On the inside, all I needed to do was throw my weight around, make a few threats then follow through on one or two...

Norman Bates (A Drabble Poem)

Not Anthony Perkins, More Norman Bates. It’s hard for me To go on dates. I have concerns; There’s too many to count. I don’t want to think About the amount. I watch them closely, From through the wall. Before I sneak On down the hall. Then use my knife To cut and slash. I rip and tear, And shred and...

The Incident

They don’t let me into Wal-Mart anymore. At least, not since “The Incident” a few months ago. I still don’t see how it was entirely my fault. Who could resist? The way they were smiling at me from all around, flaunting those bright colors like that. They were asking for it, I tell you. So, I gave it...

Training Session

When out digging for seeds in order to stock up for winter it is always best to ensure that you know the area in which you are searching. Should you find yourself in an unknown, and unfamiliar location, do not panic. Stand perfectly still, as most things cannot see you if you don’t move, then, after...

Warnings

If only I had listened. Nothing like this had ever happened before, and despite the warnings on the news, I had changed nothing of my daily routine. They had advised not to leave; not to go out unless it was an emergency. Looking out the windows, I saw that many had disregarded the warnings, so felt...

Tribe

The man called Tribe stood atop the remains of the man-made structure sword held high above his head, a cheer raised from the massed voices below. The structure, he remembered, had been called a “plaza” in the old times, its walls now cracked and crumbled with age and the ravages of battles long ago...

Shelter and Safety

Shelter and safety. Hidden deep below ground in the old subway station we finally felt safe. The world above had changed, and not for the better. None of us could remember anything before; we had only the stories, passed down with each generation. Stories about fresh air and blue skies; stories abou...

When they said it wasn’t a contest, did they really know what they were talking about? Thinking hard upon it, John had to wonder. He didn’t know the history of the statement, nor did he care to find out. All that mattered to him was winning. He knew he was winning, even though everyone kept telling ...

“Honey,” Mike called from the other room. “I think the VCR is pooched. What time is it?” “7:05,” I called back checking my watch. I glanced at the window and saw that it was surprisingly dark for that time of night. Not dark like dusk, but pitch black dark. No lights. “Why? What’s it say?” “That’s t...
