Wire

Light from no where passes over the wall, and she noticed through the corner of her eye. Bikes with small frames, as dark as gun metal, are driven without fear off the tops of stone staircases. The last helmet the rider ever possessed was incinerated with a lighter, and a old can of hair spray, when […]

Rank

Taking stock of the shots sustained over the course of the night. There is a chorus line on a poorly lit stage, and half of the dancers are drunk. The people at the bar are quiet, but still whispering about the usual bullshit. No one is getting paid enough, and no one is going to […]

Like a philosophical junkyard with no care […]

Over The Sea

Water dripping off the gutters makes a random rhythm that amplifies their thoughts. They hold the cold cans in their bare hands so tightly they are numb enough to vanish. Mud coating their shoes, walking paths on cloudy days, when the rain only falls at night. The tracks left by the dogs are like small […]
