Quill by Eva Harley

7/22/2018
More
Blue eyes drift, a wistful gaze drawn through cracked glass to the desolate street below. With quill in hand, rolled ever so slowly between aged fingers, echoes of previous times drift over her thoughts forming a shield, obscuring the present. An unsteady lift of the hand raises the instrument above paper yellowed with age, the … Continue reading "Quill by Eva Harley"

Kidnapper

7/21/2018
More
The kidnapper was a total cliche. White unmarked van. Fake beard and glasses. Lured the kid in with candy and a story about a lost puppy. Just a few seconds with a chloroforum-soaked rag, and he had his prey. He’d soundproofed his basement, and tested it by turning on the stereo as loud as he … Continue reading "Kidnapper"

Defollow

7/20/2018
More
I defollowed the Trump supporters, because they supported a serial fraudster and failed businessman riding a reality-television popularity wave. I defollowed the Cruz supporters, because they supported a homophobic misogynistic evangelical hypocrite. I defollowed the Sanders supporters, because they supported an unprincipled charlatan who ran as a Democrat only for the campaign money and party … Continue reading "Defollow"

Loyalty to the Crown

7/19/2018
More
Here, in The Kingdom, we swear our loyalty to The Crown. No, not The King. The King is just the man who wears The Crown. The Crown uses The King as a host, speaking through the body and consuming it slowly. Until a new King is needed. Prisoners from the jail. The sick. The old. … Continue reading "Loyalty to the Crown"

Batman vs Superman

7/18/2018
More
In a fight between Batman and Superman, who wins? Not me. I’m an insurance agent. And I have clients in Gotham and Metropolis. Every time these goons go at it, my phone rings off the hook. The dead, the injured. Life insurance claims. Medical claims. Property claims, too. Collapsed buildings. Totaled cars. Shattered windows. And … Continue reading "Batman vs Superman"

Offshore

7/17/2018
More
Bob started his own business a while back. He’s sick of paying taxes, so he looked into an offshore tax haven. He bought a boat, loaded his company on to it, and pulled up the anchor. “NO MORE TAXES!” he cheered. “SCREW YOU, AMERICA!” Things went okay for about a day, until government lawyers showed … Continue reading "Offshore"

My team doesn’t tell me…

7/16/2018
More
My team doesn’t tells me when something changes. It’s not that they forget to tell me. When I walk into the room, they stop talking. Or, if it’s important, they stop me in the hall and just stare at me. Then they follow up with blank emails and memos. Once, they hired a singing telegram, … Continue reading "My team doesn’t tell me…"

Memory Foam

7/14/2018
More
I bought a memory foam mattress. It’s comfortable. And I sleep well. At least I thought I did. Turns out, I toss and turn all night. But the foam absorbs my memories. So I forget the discomfort and restlessness. And the pain. That would be fine, as long as I don’t forget anything else. I … Continue reading "Memory Foam"

Transportation Vacation

7/12/2018
More
Ships leave once a month to carry men sentenced to transportation. Exile to Australia. The trip from England to Australia is a long one, and perilous. Some crew stab their passengers mid-journey. Others throw them overboard into the ocean. A few show mercy, and release them in Africa or some island. The crew then estimates … Continue reading "Transportation Vacation"

The Flagpole

7/11/2018
More
I looked out my office window at the next building over. Their flag is at half mast. I don’t know of anyone famous that has died recently. Or any local disasters. Maybe someone at their office died. That’s a shame. So, is there a job opening? Or maybe someone’s husband died… are they hot? Or … Continue reading "The Flagpole"

Jackie the Joke Man

7/10/2018
More
When Jackie was growing up, other kids would tell him “Tell us a joke, man!” So, Jackie became Jackie the Joke Man. He tried to turn it into a job, but he struggled. Folks would say “Jackie, you’re a joke, man!” He stuck with it, toured and made albums, wrote for popular television and radio … Continue reading "Jackie the Joke Man"

New credit card

7/9/2018

My credit card expired, so the credit card company sent me a new card in the mail. I opened the envelope and left it on the table to remind me to activate it. The next morning, as I was going through my list of tasks to do before heading to work, I saw that the … Continue reading "New credit card"

Invismalign

7/7/2018
More
I had braces when I was younger, but my teeth have shifted around, and I’m in danger of losing a few if they remain misaligned. I’m not getting braces on my teeth again, so I just got fitted for Invisalign trays. They’re more expensive and take longer to align teeth, but at least I don’t … Continue reading "Invismalign"
