I Smell A Rat #newcago #horticulture #pandemic #flashfiction #reading

  New Cago was not a very cultured metropolis before the epi & pan demic. Kids were shoving things up their noses or in their veins. It made sense that there was no room for something for the mind to synthesize. Then the libraries were closed. So most people read their cereal box for entertainment.Continue reading “I Smell A Rat #newcago #horticulture #pandemic #flashfiction #reading”

“Find Broken Nose” the guy gasped. “Never heard of him.” The guy grabbed my collar and pulled me close to his lips. “Get my kid brother outta this cesspool.  His real name is Gregory.

Alzheimers and Old Butcher Knives Part 2 #atozchallenge #elderly

“Millie came to visit… The RAT never suspected. Never suspected a thing. Extra sugar can hide almost anything. The one thing my husband enjoyed was my home baked cookies.” “Oh well.

“Daddy was the main caregiver for mama who has had Alzheimer’s for several years. She never knows who I am when I visit.

An Old Dilemma, New Crime #Newcago1 #fiction #disease

I inhale it every night before 6 – Courage (my dead lover’s not mine) I looked at my watch.”5 pm time for the cops to crawl into hiding.” I chuckle. ” I don’t have the luxury of steel bars.” A long banshee like scream bites into the last flicker of day and the night begins. Decency’s doors are closed andContinue reading “An Old Dilemma, New Crime #Newcago1 #fiction #disease”

If you were… #children #fiction

If you were a butterfly would you be friends with a lion??? I didn’t think so. Personally,I wouldn’t either.  We know a lion who saved a butterfly while she was still in her chrysalis and she saw something about him that others didn’t. Now this butterfly and (domesticated) lion go about the villages of UgandaContinue reading “If you were… #children #fiction”
