    I am friend to the shadow realm we silently agreed to abandon three months ago. The forbidden thoughts slumber in the dark, dusty confines of my vanishing heart. each emotion is a twisted clone of my own emaciated figure. they moan and writhe beneath asphyxiating quilts of broken ...

    my destination is the invisible realm where Monotony dwells – it slumbers in a dimly lit tunnel. its daunting aura seduces the fine grey mist rising from the subway. the subway sighs softly... as I am welcomed into its hollow heart. the doors creak shut, trapping in the musky scent of...

    I found an old home video. I’ve never seen it before. It’s really blurry... it was recorded 15 years ago, on my first birthday. The camera is on me. I am sitting in a miniature ship that is rocking back and forth as gold coins are deposited. The muffled sounds of the arcade in the background ...

    on the inside i think the little boy must be crying. he looks wearily at me with his huge, shadowed eyes blinking vapidly like a confused baby fawn. his dry lips are drawn downwards and parted slightly. his soft, rasping breaths are that of an elderly man. he reaches weakly toward...

    i clasp rough hands with the sallow faced man one evening on a deserted road. golden rays of darkened sun trickle over our inclined heads. The silence that surrounds us works to make itself prevalent in my ears. The only sound is the occasional dry whispering of browned leaves...
