Battle Of Babylon

I raged against your bloodless face Mocking my burning essence, I raged against the shallow grave Of your vain, slothful indifference, I raged against each breath you took Away from me by proxy – You are the nemesis I never thought I would know how to fight, As there is no power in you, Just […]

The Fish Lady

Woman selling fish encounters salvation. A short story. ★ The fish were terrified. Georgina’s round, placid face appeared to come out of nowhere, a full moon over their quivering last minutes on Earth. Their pain ended with her smile. She understood them.

7.30 to Euston

To all those valiant souls who chose the Word as chalice to their sweet love for the Other. To them who, throughout Babylon, fight the shadows of indifferent silence. To the ones who believe in passing on boundless blessings of Our Maker. To the Wordsmiths of the Sun, trembling with courage, seeking to deafen the […]

Electric Locusts

Woman on the verge of a fridge. A short story. ★ Wanda moved slowly towards the fridge in her claustrophobic little studio flat, stood in front of the stained white monolith for a moment or two, and then opened it wide, with majestic pathos. It was empty. She knew it would be, but intermittently checked […]
