  • THE PLAYER

    I drift into the shady joint, nothing else to do, and watch a few sharks perform their torque on green felt. Not my game though.

  • Shame

    Memories which horrify her on cold, sober walks still tick somewhere in her blood. At night, the rejected words sometimes run over her skin like a wave; she is still somehow primed for them.

Fiction

  • Litro #157: Nightmares: Sweet Marrow
