Offer I Can't Refuse

I sit thinking my life is not as cool as videogames, when the darkness outside explodes with colored light. I rush outside. An impossibly smooth, reflective vehicle hovers. With a hiss, the hatch unfolds; two space-suited aliens emerge. “The Galaxy is at war.” A mechanical voice translates over the ...

Women: Can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em. Unfortunately, thanks to gosh darn Quantum Physics, I must do both.

Siren

A man lays dead, face down in a bowl of cream of mushroom soup. “No signs of a struggle, probably a heart attack,” says Detective Murphy. “Maybe,” says O’brien, “Or maybe it’s one of them evil soup sirens, from the tabloids, that lures eaters to their soupy deaths with its soupy song.” “Don’t be rid...

Re: Every Me

If you can kill an infinite you, couldn't you also switch places? No, forget that. If you could swap places, you'd first need to go on a long hunt to locate the happy infinite you, and you'd be likely to encounter several versions of a more miserable infinite you before you found a happy one. Then ...

Every Me

I barrel through the intersection doing sixty, tires screech, horns blare. Infinite me’s die in infinite variations of grizzly car crashes. I want to kill not just myself, but every me, in every parallel universe. I drive off the overpass bringing infinite me’s with me. None of us should survive. My...

Mother's Son

I visited my father in the asylum. He hadn’t spoken in years. This time, however, he leaned in close and whispered, “Listen to me. Your ‘mother’ created me as an instrument to take over the world, to do her biding. But I was a prototype, flawed. “She learned from her mistakes and in you, achieved pe...

Dawn at Last

Is there no sun on this god-damned planet? Nothing but snow, darkness, and the slobbery snarls of some unseen beasts stalking me. What a hell to crash into. I fumble through the deep drifts, my body nearly frozen. The beasts should have already killed me. Maybe they are just watching the strange ali...

In the Begining

God said “let there be blight” and there was blight.
“I mean light! Crap!” and there was crap.
“Damn!” and there was Hell.

Dawn at Last

The sun rose, a beacon of hope, heating my frozen joints, staying the beasts hunting me.
Then my spacesuit began to melt.

I Am Immortal

I suddenly realize I am immortal. None of this can hurt me. My squad yells for me to stop, but I stride unarmed towards the enemy. Confusion is evident on their faces. Halfway across the battlefield, a sniper shoots me in the chest. I stop, but don’t fall. There is pain, but it’s someone else’s pain...

Just Memory

You, suitcase in hand, slam the door after you.
I, hard drive grinding, yearn for you to be just memory
So I can delete you.

One of Us

I gasp ragged breaths. I cannot out run it. It is relentless. Lactic acid chokes my muscles; blood, my lungs. Eventually, I slow. Its cold metal arms subdue me. I'm unable to struggle against its vise grip. Panels slide open on its head, permitting wires to emerge, snaking slowly to my temples. I sc...
