The Meaning of Forever

I met her by chance, yet it seemed an inevitable fate. That first moment our eyes locked I saw our future together, And I suddenly understood the meaning of forever. As I gently took her hands in mine, electricity jolted me back to life. Her smile revealed her as the woman for whom I have... Continue Reading →

Quantum Field Theory

I love you. I love you more. I love you most. I love you times infinity. I love you to the negative one-twelfth... which is the sum of all natural numbers... which is actually greater than infinity. Quantum field theory, quite simply, my love. I win. Goddammit.

Phases

The moon tugs until her arms grow weary. She sits back and sighs, awaiting a second wind which will never arrive. Slowly, she dozes off as the tide rolls out. Faithfully, she returns to work the following day. And every day. Human emotions closely mimic the mannerisms of the moon. The midnight orb's apparent effort,... Continue Reading →

I’ll Pass On The One-Ply

My boyfriend and I recently decided to assess ways of cutting back on our spending. We don't eat out, we don't have debt, and neither of us is prone to impulse spending. Overall, we're pretty good with money. So, we did what any frugal couple in our shoes would do: we tried out cheap toilet paper.... Continue Reading →

Demolition

A hammer is drawn back, drywall crumbles to the ground, revealing pink foam, soaked-- speckled with fuzzy green leisions.   The edges of the wood floor curve upwards, scooping remnants of the living room into their palms. Support beams shiver nervously, stripped naked, surrounded by machinery.   The sofa, couch, and coffee table displaced, tipped... Continue Reading →

Assignment

I had known about Assignment for as far back as memory takes me. I remember sitting on my mother’s lap, swiping through the story of Aloysius’ Destiny and dreaming about the day that I, too, would learn my fate. Moments earlier, a tall metal door slipped open and I heard my name: Ruchi, Amithi. I... Continue Reading →

Judger Meets Perciever

She sat beneath the branches of a sparsely leaved shade tree, lost in some faraway fictional fantasy, entirely oblivious to my approach. The young woman was making notes upon a slip of paper as she read, and I wondered just what it was that held her so firmly. I never did discover.   Her energy... Continue Reading →

Definitely Not A Slab Leak

Yesterday began like any other Monday. Except that by dinnertime the ceiling had collapsed and our home was flooded. On Thursday, I had noticed water bubbling up through the seams of the wood flooring in the closet as I walked from one shelf to another, feeling the floorboards squish beneath my toes. My inner-child was... Continue Reading →

Puppies & Parasites

Last week, I went to a seminar lead by a registered nurse. She was 82-years-old and sharp as a tack. She spoke about the risks of pandemic and what we can do to prepare. The presentation was lackluster, but the information was extremely useful. That is, with the except of one fact: if you own pets,... Continue Reading →

Unevolved

A new dawn rose up from the sullied Earth and nuclear devastation twelve years ago today. In the year 2036, Dr. Izek Usil and his team at the Transcontinental Coalition of Scientific Advancement discovered the elixir to life--a process that has accelerated the evolution of the human species through the mass distribution of Auxostheno supplements...

Resin Buddha

Walking the concrete path from the mailbox home to our 1,200 square foot paradise, fingers interlaced clasped tightly together, like a shut locket worn close to the heart securing a cherished photograph, black and white.   His eyes gazing forward, crystalline and aqueous like a sharp iceberg, drifting with intent while my sight hoovers at...
