I'm seeing a lot of "lost dog" posters around town.
My wife says I've been sleep-walking.
I hope those aren't connected.

My little boy was playing 'Doctors' with his friend Emily yesterday.
I wasn't worried... then he showed me the scalpel.

Happy birthday strawman! :)
Thanks! I'd take the hint, but after all, you are an unreliable narrator. :wink:

Car ahead moves slowly, uncertainly. Stopping? No... Yes?
Drive past, cautious.
Car moves off, stops again.

Terror of the tumbler

Post by pondspider » Wed Sep 24, 2014 9:48 am

Incessant beep beep beep beeping.
Will it never stop?
I can't go on.
The torture.
Suppose I could empty the tumble drier.

Compulsion

Post by pondspider » Wed Sep 24, 2014 10:02 am

"Try it", she said. It's safe.
A fool, I was.
Now an irresistible compulsion.
Oh, the longing!
Embrace the Drabblemire.

Her eyes met mine. Ruby lips inviting.

the honesty's too much",
she said, handing me my change.

Once in a lifetime

It's like flying, he thought, as cold air rushed past, his eyes streaming.
All too soon it was over.
Sadly unrepeatable.

Inversion

The hill haunted his dreams.
Brooding. Dark.
Now at its summit, he saw the truth.
The dream was reality. His fate sealed.

And finally... (for now)

The toilet paper CEO frowned.
That new once a week pill means the end.
The results are undeniable.

Unwelcome attention

Post by pondspider » Wed Sep 24, 2014 2:45 pm

OK, so I lied...

It's there again. Unblinking at the window.
I avert my eyes but it persists.
The inscrutable stare of a coral-pink rose.

"I wonder if I could pick your brain-"
"sure,"

Don't trust the stuffed boar in your uncle's attic. If it offers you eternal life, ask to use the bathroom. Do not return.
