Ode to the Model ’67 Chevrolet Impala on my Desk

FREE WRITING

Dust coats the hood,
scattered across the roof and trunk
like reflections of stars in an ebony mirror.
The faint remains of old fingerprints 
break the thin coating on the doors
from when idle hands broke the silence with
the brittle growl of plastic wheels skimming
across uneven veins in the mahogany desk.
 
The nearby lamp paints glaring patches of white light
over every angle and curve
while shadows lie dormant on the plastic upholstery,
curling over the silver...

Little Hummingbird

FREE WRITING

From flower         to flower,
it paints the sky         with delicate brushstrokes
and fleeting remnants         of iridescent hues.

A faded song         trails in its wake,
an endless         staccato beat of feathers
that makes the grass         bow and shudder. 

Sun-soaked,         ruby scales glitter like sequins
as the petals shiver         in...

Come Back Soon! 
    Ellis glared at the sign through the thin coating of dust smeared across the windshield. The paint was chipped and peeling, the letters faded to the same color as the dirt road that seemed to stretch on forever. Ellis felt chills crawl up his arms and back as the crackling static of thousands of corn stalks enveloped the car like a swarm of locusts, burrowing into his skin and raising the hair on the back of...

Unlawful Assembly

FREE WRITING

    Rain clawed at the window panes, turning the world outside the inn to static. Ellis closed his eyes and waited for the dull roar to quell his headache. For a few moments, the empty bar seemed peaceful.
    “Why do you insist on meeting your clients at my bar after hours?” The clatter of a shot glass on the counter drove a spike of pain through his skull. Ellis opened his eyes and traced the rim of his glass with a...

What Lies Inside The Bleeding Rocks

PROMPT: Fantasy Writing Competition 2019

    “You’re lying.” Iris glared at the cliffs looming over her, eyes tracing the dull crimson veins spread across the rock face like glass fractures. Her neck twinged from the strain of searching, some of the veins climbing so far up they seemed to warp out over the beach. Nowhere in the web of yawning cavern mouths did she find traces of the telltale burnt orange feathers.
