Still Here

My neighbor’s dog wasn’t eating cicadas—it was eating…something else. I don’t remember going outside. Videographic data proves my senses are still grasped upon the fine edge of reality, because the sky appears not to be playing by the same old rules. What the hell do I know about such things? Decide for yourself. How muchContinue reading “Still Here”

Turn it Off

A microchip won’t stop blinking—faint light pulses from a tiny triangular lens. Last night I bashed a hammer against my radio’s head until I couldn’t breathe. But that damn microchip never stopped blinking. You should turn off your radio, too. Permanently. A few dying words spewed from my radio’s broken mouth. I don’t know…the broadcastContinue reading “Turn it Off”

Think Twice

When the sun goes down, shadows can’t be trusted. Paranoia warps darkness into a canvas that stretches beyond the borders of reality, while our fears use nightmarish colors to paint obscure visions upon the void. Watch out. The NWU may have been compromised. I don’t know…some of the emergency broadcasts contradict each other. Our gutContinue reading “Think Twice”

Interference

Did the thunder keep you awake last night? It sounded like another bomb…or something else. My biotracker is still disabled. Ignore the latest emergency public announcement—that message wasn’t created by us. High-altitude flying machines dangle propaganda on barbed hooks. Nobody knows what happens to the people who take the bait. Don’t remove your identity shroud.Continue reading “Interference”

Look Up

Turn on your radio and listen to the latest NWU broadcast. Something is interfering with my radio signal. I can still hear a few words through the static. Wait. Someone said the unusual sighting have been confirmed, and we should stay inside until further notice. That’s all I heard. Sorry. I don’t know…everyone could beContinue reading “Look Up”

Something is Out There

Anyone still here? I’m awake. Nations World United News said there have been numerous reports about…I don’t know…people seeing things in the sky. I can’t be the only one who hears the noise. Nothing has been the same ever since we been told to stay inside. I’m sure you remember what happened last time whenContinue reading “Something is Out There”

Short Story: Bobby’s Organic Maple Syrup

  Spider fangs glitter as they twitch inside a dead locust. Red goo drips from the tree’s open wound, while a sticky ruby river slithers down the dry bark. Sugary sanguine droplets cling to a twig as a windy whisper ripples along the gooey spherical surface. The droplets shiver and then descend upon the spider—eightContinue reading “Short Story: Bobby’s Organic Maple Syrup”

Short Story: Drain the Brain

    A candle flame shivers as an uninvited wintry gale rattles the frigid window. The icy landscape on the silvery surface melts and flows like tears. Feral fire rages inside a prison of bricks—incinerated logs crackle and spits sparks into the living quarters. “Do you think Rupert will survive the night, Fabricio?” Giles SaysContinue reading “Short Story: Drain the Brain”
