“WARVET” by GLAHN_

In a hospital there was a man.

“You be good, Kyle,” said a woman, leaving her four year old son there with the man.

The boy said nothing and his great-grandpa stared at him, saying nothing. The boy walked over and looked at the man’s face. The man turned his head and looked at the boy. His voice was ghostly and weak when he said:

“Clyde, you go sit down now.”

The boy made a face. He climbed up on the rail of the bed and looked down on the man.

“Get the hell down.”

The boy laughed and walked sideways on the rail. He pulled the corded control that lay beside the man and began turning the channels on the TV. The old man tried to raise his leg but he couldn’t. Only his foot moved. The boy stopped the TV on a channel with a person dressed in a bright pink, soft-looking hog suit who snorted and danced with a person dressed as, what looked to be, a deer. The boy laughed at it.

“You whistledick, give it—”

He reached out for the control and touched it with his callused fingers. The boy jerked it away. Continue reading

“FROM SAND LIBRARY” by ZACHARY SCOTT HAMILTON

FROM

sand library

Knots in a submarine sculpture because of red microwaves, the blow dryer, a plate of string and bundles of the nerve in my chamomile teeth, (sun kissing moon) Bee propolis dropped along my gum line to pull the infection forward into the feather pictures, loose on the frame, turn a found motor with a bicycle part ~ The best twenty five, saturated into an air that a church bell follows to the city/ Saturated in string, a hockey player skates through the Chinese moderns, weaving nudity to his paper thin maneuvering of locusts, collapsed at the hairdos, entangled in a sculpture of nudity and roller skates, string waves and artifice.

“SHRINKING EARTH” by ANON

The earth is shrinking. It’s a strange thought, but it is true. Indicators of this is an increase in high magnitude earthquakes, rising oceans, and rapid earth heating.

Earthquakes

The tectonic plates right now are sliding on top of each other as the earths core gets smaller and smaller, causing very sudden, powerful jolts as they scrape past one another. These currents rushing through the earth cause earthquakes, which are increasing in frequency. Continue reading

“KNOCK KNOCK” by qtl

Once upon a time there was an owl sitting on a branch over a purple sunset.  It was so picturesque the owl was afraid he was actually living on the front of a postcard, and indeed he was.  It was a cheap old postcard in the back corner of a dusty shop that had seen better days.

To be precise: the shop had always been a sleepy shop (the kind of business that makes up for low sales volume with even lower margins) but for many years it had been a sleepy shop in a sleepy neighborhood, so the proprietor could make his rent.  But unfortunately an excessive public safety campaign had made such a dent in the muggings and rapes in the sleepy neighborhood that foot traffic had improved and rents had begun to rise.

“DENIAL” by M

dont fall back asleep. dont use warm water in the shower; cold water induces non-shivering thermogenesis, which is good for metabolic and psychological health, and also warm water will open your pores, the fracking fluid water will get in. dont put cream in your coffee – dairy cows in the industrialized world are milked deep into pregnancy, which leaves elevated levels of estrone and estradiol in the milk, also modern milk causes excess igf-1 signaling which ages you faster, increases adiposity and insulin resistance.

“SPIRITS” by Usercorpse

In the morning, and this is after I’ve my caffeine pills and sign in, I–between three sets of forty-five pushups and four of two over-bending leg stretches–farm fifty or sixty Lizard Brain of Poise in two sessions and take water. So, I can make twenty bucks and prop my strength up in two hours before going in. Then I’ll be doing things leisurely in Istanthor and have my news on autoscroll down the vertical of my three monitors; everything about guns, ML, MLG, AI, NSA, CIA, NLP, E3, TED, MIA, KGB, third world democracy, Cobie Smulders, and new glitch exploits in Istanthor (a ghost-infested old castle city with very exploitable ghost physics!!!), and I’ll eat noodles of some color or a protein bar or take powder,
