PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2019



The bridge yawns back at me; two gaping streets and cars whizzing past, glimmering, angry. Warm gusts of a gloomy summer slither through my hair, remnants of dried tears, my cheeks solemn and tranquil.

So I stop, and stare. The footpaths smile, brick and bone monstrosity, I am small; Lilliputian in pain. I begin screaming; profanities, hurling words like pebbles on windows, the people in the cars looking at me with trepidation and concern; I am trivial.

those unfurled darjeeling natives
light brown and toast on
    the side.

my teeth feel like nails hammered into a freshly painted wall; white dripping, my tongue stuck to the roof, boarded-up windows, and my neighbor saying goodbye.

"i try my best at sleeping but my dreams are unappealing." - the japanese house


there is an earth shattering ache in my chest when i wake up from a sweet
dream; the vast emptiness of what could have been. i bend and break, yew trees and the soft acceptance of thorns and how they hurt; to love is a catastrophe.

i cannot breathe; water clogged lungs, airways, bloodstreams and blood in streams; ophelia, sweet ophelia is my...

the crows smile. a murder, and two, and three, but the crows smile.
rain seeps into the foggy newspaper; of black nights and missing black women, sins blaring through the city; police sirens wailing, babies wailing, funeral processions wailing.

san francisco is on fire tonight.
the flames lick and lust, charred flesh and jealousy, the hijab cannot snuff out this inferno. but the hijab can speak. the hijab can incriminate. the hijab, and the convenience of a discriminated suspect. the...
