Photo by David Clode on Unsplash It had taken nearly two years to prepare the vessel properly. Each day, I tended to the monstrous orange blossom, that now stood to nearly the height of a two-story house. I lugged water pitcher after water pitcher to its thorny, green trunk, and lovingly applied fertilizer to the soil that surrounded… Continue reading Go Where You Grow: The Wishing Fruit
Photo by adrian on Unsplash My class would end in less than twenty minutes, but I was still restless; my craving for lemonade making me bite my lip. Oh, I thought, you sweet and tasty beverage. What I wouldn't do to get some of you. When my professor wasn't looking I would let my head lull against my fist… Continue reading The Arctic Front
The grease thickened cooling even as it found purchase between myself and my heated gaze. My reflection seemed as angry as I, but at what, she could not say.

Here, the water acts of its own accord, twisting up in beautiful crystalline spirals (or down, or meeting together in the center, in a balanced whorl of brilliant geometry). I have been led down here - at first against my… Continue reading Dreamscapes: An Otherworldly Descent
I chose a panic so deep it gained its own sentience and humbled me, personally, over the pain - imagined or real - of another. I am beginning to understand something about the mind.
