Wet Sand Mk. II
Wet Sand Mk. II

Give us the wet sand look, said the woman. I was measuring up as a bespoke coverer for the good or the rich. Carpet-layer and wall-hanger. That’s me. Wet sand look? Yes, she replied. She explained what she wanted. A few throw-rugs for the hall where the bagpipers for the... Read more

A bellyful of sadness...
A bellyful of sadness...

“A bellyful of sadness, a stoup of hope, if stories have threads, real lives don’t. Eyes have eyes, spooks have spines, souls are switched, with made-up minds. Worlds within worlds, heaven in flight – only connect, only go bump in the night.”

Give us the wet sand look, said the woman. I was measuring up as a bespoke coverer for the good or the rich. Carpet-layer and wall-hanger. That's me. Wet sand look? Yes, she replied. In time for Burns' Nite, she added. I didn't know then, of course, how she spelt night, as this... Read more

Holland Haven
10 Attachment(s) Holland Haven

Whole and haven. Hole and Haven. Haven is only one letter short of Heaven. A place named Holland? Perhaps the Netherlands, the Heathen Lands, the Heaven Lands, the Heaving Lands after some holocaust of tides and coastal warming. Whole with a w is quite alien to the concept of hole without a...

Aestivation
Aestivation

THE END OF THE CHASE I first met him as part of a group of people who didn’t know me at all but who knew friends whom I’d known for some years, but the first thing he ever said to me, quite out of the blue, at a pudding party run by the original friends, was rather off-putting to say... Read more

Hooray-Henries At Play
Hooray-Henries At Play

Catheater Street seemed dark even in the long summer evenings, so when winter arrived it needed more than just the council lighting to disperse the premature onset of night. No stars or moon could ever be seen from Catheater Street. I loved it, though. Such a place suited my thoughts and... Read more

Misdiagnosis
Misdiagnosis

It's terrifying to receive a misdiagnosis, especially if it is assumed to be a correct diagnosis when you are first terrified by it. When it later turns out to be a misdiagnosis, your terror, in hindsight, becomes quite misplaced. But the terror never really goes away. Indeed, the terror... Read more

A Boy Balloon
A Boy Balloon

The shop was a relatively ordinary one, with cracked paint on its frames revealing it was not a terribly successful business but with wide and healthy glass in its show-window, an old-fashioned bell to indicate its door opening or shutting, with all manner of bric-a-brac being sold, some...

A Voice In The Parcel
A Voice In The Parcel

The greatest enjoyment is the least enjoyment. Well, let me qualify that. I am not a real person as such; I am a character in a story, as you can see for yourself. Yet, that sounds pretentious, so let me tell you that I am a real person, after all; it's just that I need someone else to tell... Read more

The Random Wind
The Random Wind

The group of people squatting in a circle on the warm grass dealt with their own failings, not only each of them exposing such failings on an individual personal basis but also shuffling all of the failings together, metaphorically interleaving them, as with any pack of cards used... Read more

KNOTS
KNOTS
DF Lewis

When I awoke, my customary surroundings were slightly – even imperceptibly – changed from what I remembered them to be. Not so much an alternate world or a parallel dream disguised as awaking or an onset of mild mental illness on my part (but who can be certain of that!) but rather something... Read more

The Gazing Stacks
The Gazing Stacks

An area of high land where one could chew the fat of the view. The prime spot for spotting an unexpected UFO or the sudden onset of World’s end. A situation and atmosphere inclined towards the sight of strange events, even if no strange events eventually arose. There were always... Read more

Kissing As The Art of Marking Victims
Kissing As The Art of Marking Victims

The wave was huge, a tsunami of humani, each with its hand raised and wavering in unison. They told me to watch out for any of the many wavering out of tune, so that each could then be picked out, taken out and dealt with. Kissing as the art of marking victims. That was my job. One of... Read more

Don't Say Anything
Don't Say Anything

"Don't say anything," was the last thing she said. There was a hush that lengthened into a silence, a long silence, as we stared at each other. When someone says "Don't say anything" to you with a certain emphasis on the words, the meaning is often clear. Do not DARE... Read more
