Fully-formed with mandibles. (Or maybe that’s tentacles or tendrils?) With barnacles protruding from its follicles. It came from beneath the sea. It bared its teeth as it left the ocean, jagged and green. No longer would it have to fight off Sting Ray. But come what may, land beckoned. And it reckoned it was high time to leave the salty brine of its old life … Continue reading It came from beneath the sea
Through the grime and mist of the club you spy her. Make-up smudged and sweaty but still a beautiful siren. She arches a brow as she spots your stare. Then catches your frown as the club lights glare. Smooth. What a way to start. Mixed signals. Hardly a route to this girl’s heart. But despite the noise, sweat and people this ain’t a race. You’re … Continue reading The angel with the dirty face
She flips when she hears your secrets. Demoted to the FBI, you now spend your day peddling lies. Calculating, she looks at you as she plots your demise. Sizing you up for termination. She’s wise to your cries for special consideration. But it didn’t start here. This is the end of the tale. It began with a trap so allow me to regale. Looking back, … Continue reading Informer!
As a nation we stagger about and swagger around. Content to be part of the crowd. Our work defines us, you can see by the sweat on our brow. The bulk of us, we’re computer monkeys. A cult plugged to our PCs, caffeine junkies. Then, when released for a brief two days a week we find our feet. Shuffling slowly at first, our movements broad. … Continue reading Zombie nation
Salt n pepa said that, back in 1988. At that time music wasn’t faked. Yet from stealing and sampling there was still no escape. But the words, poppy as they were, still hold resonance. Growing up in the ’80s and the ’90s decadence, I used their melody to calm me and give my soul relevance. Paying penance in the presence of my peers, I faced … Continue reading Push it real good
The air is thin as the nights draw in. It’s coming… winter. As sure as it’s written in scripture. You can fight colds with a herbal tincture, it’s a breeze. Or if you feel the need, why not OD on vitamin C? You see, at some point September turns. We remember the late summer sun, but all of a sudden the cold air burns. And … Continue reading Winter is coming
You’re a freak it’s official. I mean honestly, if you weren’t around would anyone actually miss you? Freaking people out with your peculiar ways. You’ve got an unsettling cheek the way you gaze. But you’re not phased. You hit up social settings like you’re lost in a maze. Your movements odd, like a drunken daze. Gears grinding your brain you never cease to amaze. But … Continue reading The freaks come out
Ladies and gentlemen I’m a mad scientist. I’ve taken some bad drugs to see if I’m limitless. The thing is this, I don’t know what they’ll do. I’ve not checked the effects, from my sex drive to my nervous system. I don’t have high hopes for my disposition. But my line of work, it’s all about pushing the boundaries. I’m a chemical blacksmith and this … Continue reading Pimp science!
Pacing the street I stop; crouch on my feet and watch my prey. Feeling my heartbeat drop as I dodge the alley’s urban decay. Then I grin. My heart full of sin as my first victim comes into view. Tottering on tiny shoes like a porcelain doll. She’s a tasty morsel, of course I fix eyes on her as my ultimate goal. Good Lord… she’s … Continue reading The lothario
Here I stand as a liar I gotta say I can’t help it. I tell you now this whole thing is just bullshit. This web of lies, it never damn ends. It’s why I’m at my wit’s end with my friends. But I’m not here to reform or offer confession. Today this session a survival lesson. One I’m proud to say really flies the flag, … Continue reading Liar liar, pants on fire!
