  • Sertraline Dream #1: Unmerited Compliments

  • Start A New Life

    The veil waited, carefully spread over a chair back. All of the dressing room photos had been taken, the bridesmaids and her mother had taken their places, and the bride had a few moments to herself.

    The mirror reflected her perfect form, the perfect dre…

  • Breaking the Ice

    The hidden thing inside the pipe twisted, thrusting deeper, spewing waxy slivers of ice in its wake – a fixed point around which their world revolved.

  • Second Post!

    The first was wooden and splintery. Brittle. Damn thing would fall over at the slightest gust of wind. It wouldn't hold itself up, much less an entire fence.
