  1. Cursing

    March 5, 2015 by Wolf Westwood

    Last night I had an itch that would not let me go to sleep, and I knew what it was; however, as hard as I tried, I could not reach it. So, I stood up all night cursing the person that forgot to take my toe tag off before I was buried.

  3. Opus

    “It was a perfectly good grand piano.” She thought, as she was unraveled by the mounting crescendo.

  4. Flake of Snow

    March 4, 2015 by Wolf Westwood

    Before I had you, I was a snowflake— cold, lonely, and lost. Now that I have you, I am in love with the thought that perhaps, just perhaps, we both are
    snowflakes holding hands so that when we fall to the snow on the ground, we will fall warmly together in perfect harmony.

    I opened a fortune cookie. It was a piceous cookie.

  6. Birthday

    March 3, 2015 by Lindsey

    “He’s not coming, is he?” I squeezing my mother’s hand, the multi-colored party hat on my head slipping down. My mother squeezed back, and without a word walked back inside the house.

  7. Not Entirely Fiction

    March 2, 2015 by L. A. Tobin

    May the Lord strike me deaf if I’m not telling the truth.
    It started the night of the Gleason wedding: Missy Gleason and Joe McGregor’s eldest boy, Thomas, had decided to tie their knot at the Town Hall instead of at Missy’s folks’ place, which infuriated Mother Gleason enough to kill her cactus, Ralph, by nudging it out the window (Ralph’s home had been that windowsill since before Mother Gleason could remember); and Missy’s sisters had had their wedding and reception and, later, a funeral, at the old Gleason homestead, so why couldn’t Missy? The instant Mother Gleason found out that Missy was going to be a girl she began looking forward to the day her youngest, and final child, would walk down the aisle… so, naturally, the Town Hall seemed not only an impersonal choice but also an aberrant drift from the long-held Gleason family tradition, of which Missy would have no part, stating, “Because it’s not at the house, that’s why,” further infuriating her mother, who, incidentally, insisted on naming her daughter Mildred Ester Gleason, but had changed her mind when her husband threatened to leave and never return, saying, “…if you demonize that child with that name, I’ll…” So, Missy it was.

  8. Afraid is the Man

    February 27, 2015 by L. A. Tobin

    Afraid is the man who keeps to himself his life as if guarded… who keeps social togetherness at arm’s length… and who stares at his shoes wondering where and when it all went wrong, mumbling to himself about times that should have been. Terrified is he who journeys back in time to change what was (if only in his mind) into what should have been, thus living a life aberrant to the original plan.

  9. Only the Good Die Young

    February 27, 2015 by Jacob Stark

    The staccato reports of automatic gunfire filled the room, painting the walls with blood and bone until nothing so much as twitched. Satisfied, the child switched off the game system.

  10. God

    February 26, 2015 by Jacob Stark

    God spread yards of red yarn across the living room floor, weaving it through sofa and chair legs, purring all the while. From the safety of the piano He looked out over his work and saw that it was good

  11. Out of my mind

    February 25, 2015 by Noel C.

    It touches me, and I shy away from it.
    It comes closer, but I see no one.

  12. Inexplicable

    February 25, 2015 by Tom Summerson

    I caught his eye just before he jumped in front of the bus; he smiled knowingly and threw me his breifcase. Inside were divorce papers and a woman’s severed hand wearing a beautiful wedding ring.
