This Way To The Sun

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2019


    Through the solar windows, we squint against the sliver of sun rising on the edge of the city. I recognize the cramped atmosphere of the bus, yet everyone quiets as we glide over the sand. They told us the air was safe, even though it'll be years before the sky color regulates.
    As I wake Marco, people drift towards the exit, removing their masks. We rip ours off, running. The plateau's rusty ledge warms our hands, and I feel wind for the first time. There's a stain...

When You Peer Out A Window And It's Yourself Who Looks Back

PROMPT: The Vistas Beyond

A window anywhere and any-when is always the same; I see people.
They've been, an are going; face an unmistakable guise.
Until they look back at me, what does my window see?
As a person spots you looking through a window, you are the window-view.

The Water Loved Me

PROMPT: Personal Narrative Competition 2018


    We remember seemingly unimportant accounts, laying on the cusp between tangible and forgotten, those which dance around our heads amongst the nightmares and daydreams. I try to float among these memories, with beaches and churches and family, and find some young love of the ocean.
    My oldest recollection of sand remains before I could fully understand the weight of something new and exciting. My dad pulls me up onto his shoulders, my chubby hands gripping onto his wire glasses, introducing...

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2018

In the summer it's hot,
so I sit on the veranda in the spring.
I hear the whispers sometimes, in the silence it rings.

This year there is no veranda
and there is no spring
only me and you on this porch swing.

No quiet voice amidst on summer of scorch.
'We're not alone', says the song that you sing.
'We have none,' i hum in return.

They're still yearning for summer
and this porch swing
kiss their mothers goodbye,to...

In No Time

PROMPT: Monster Flash Fiction Competition 2018

    Our setting is a dimly lit bistro, a counter man being strangled by a necktie, and a picture box on an infinite coil.
The indicated sub-zone bum palace of shoplifted one-liners and wasted boozers, deprives the general public of it's preferred
animating vigor, in advance to a covert band of wired characters. I may call the dank lighting an atmospheric selection, all the same a means to screen away migrants. This misfortune of an inhuman counter man, cosmically vivid lounge,...
