I Came To Disappear by Barry Marshall

In the darkness, your hands outstretched before you, you are falling through eternity. Focus. Deep breath and hold. Release. Focus. You are perfectly alone and alone is perfect. The comforting veil of darkness becomes scratched with pinpricks of light. Soon the images will come. Focus. A shrill cry of surprise. He drowsily unfurled his hands

Encouragement by Harrison Kim

Jackson flows around the streets in a long black cloak that edges right down to his feet. His halo of black and grey hair holds up a dark cowl. At every corner he crawls on his knees and sweeps up the dirt and litter with his bare hands and drops it in a bag he

Artist Folly by Tammy Breitweiser

The latest fight started over bananas. I like to keep brown bananas in the freezer for the banana bread I never get around to baking. Who knew the yellow fruit would be controversial? In the beginning of romance nuances are regarded as “no big deal” when you are enamoured with his perfection. This is the

The Starvation Response By Patrick Christie

My father always took a nap after lunch. He claimed it wasn’t a matter of choice. He simply couldn’t keep his eyes open.

Still, they suited his personality; classy, a

A Non-Zero Chance of Pickles By Zoë Wells

Gerald O’Flynn Connoway was not a very complicated man, and certainly not one capable of killing someone. He worked a small job with a small desk at a large insurance company, calculating the likelihood that someone just like him might one day lose a leg in a horrific water-skiing accident off the coast of Bali.

Deathbed Blowjob By Mark A. Nobles

The geography, climate, and natives of Texas all share a ‘for it or against it’ attitude. There is little if any middle ground in the Lone Star state. If I had a nickel every time I’ve heard my granddaddy, daddy, or an old man at the diner tell me to ‘get off the fence, boy,
