Last Rights: (Part II of III)

Part I is located here.             The straight line. This is what I travel. I have wings that sift through the minor particles that make up space. Those wings are silver. My face is cold. A straight line through the universe is a pathway that has no destination. It’s simply a direction, a movement straight ahead. […]

Last Rights (Part I of III)

             This is a surprise short story. Last Rights: Part I of III details a young man’s thousand-year journey to a recently-discovered planet.             Clamps holding onto the ship, releasing. Crowds cheering over the hill.

                         “Excuse me, but have you got a spot to plug in my dog?”             “No. Be on your way.” The broom handle chatted with the metal spindles at its end.

A Moment for Drew Ramos (Ending)

<Part I> <Part II> <Part III>             But in time, the paintings ended. They had reached such a level of complexity and strangeness that there appeared to be nothing further Drew could add. The paintings lay in his dorm room, a forest of unmitigated oddness, consigned to the available spaces as Drew made his way around […]

A Moment for Drew Ramos (Part III)

<Part I> <Part II>             Drew took it upon himself to inform me of his mother’s condition at random times, as though to minimize any possibility of overlong discussion. In the middle of class, he’d reach over, “She’s on an experimental drug and says it makes her smell like garlic”, or “The doctors have cleared her […]

A Moment for Drew Ramos (Part II)

<Part I here>             But Drew’s true love had been physics. He’d sit in the library, teaching me everything he knew on the subject under a bronze lamp.
