I’d always been indifferent to rats, always. Even from when I was a little child growing up in Morgan Street Flats, they were something part-and-parcel with everyday life. They were used as a derogatory term for those who told on others. They were seen scarcely at all, even then only near the canal. We were told not to go too near the edge, should the rats get us. Of all the things that interested me about my area, the rats were the worst. There were other things though. Like when …

He was going to be famous. He knew it, had always known it. He was an entertainer. There was a story his parents told on those occasions when families gathered and pretended to be families. Holidays, funerals, weddings, year after year, the same story, only different. One of those stories that grows, always bigger, like the children at the small table, or the resentments at the adults buffet. The latest incarnation of the story had him as a precocious infant, winking at girls, smiling at men and saluting soldiers. Soon …

It was November 12th 2012, the day that we were celebrating as Veteran’s Day. I was outside a small coffee shop near the University I was attending, drinking coffee and reading. There was a group of college students sitting at the table behind me. “I know what you’re saying because I’m the exact same way,” said one of them—he had a large flat brimmed hat and multiple piercings through his nose and mouth. “I’ve always wanted to help everyone, but you can’t do it, it’s too much to handle, you’ll …

The young boys name has long left his thoughts, he likes it to be that way. But the boys smell pulsated though his mind like a cocktail of drugs. Both numbing his senses and boiling them to a feverish rage. His long gray boney fingers creek as he raises the cloth to his nonexistent nose. He shakes as …

Mr. Clay was an honest man. He knew his way with convicts, and he just wanted to leave those poor bastards alone. Heeley State Prison was a joke, its death row complex had a long glass corridor and you could see cars and buses cruising on the highway from the cells, and if they had binoculars they would see those orange shapes of men breathing and leaning against the walls to have a chat. From the small restaurant accross the road anyone could do that no sweat. That place seemed …

The Jefferson boys found him near the bridge. It was just after sun up. He’d floated down the river. I felt relief when I heard he‘d been found. And I felt fear. Somehow I’d gotten this vision in my head of him floating along for eternity; but he’d been found, and he’d be buried, and he’d be cried over, and he’d be missed. And I still felt fear. There should have been another way. I should have found another way. I wished I could have given him more time without …

harekrishna, i am sharing a very cute experience from my life. Shrihari ‘THE ROAD’ “Why the hell this road is too lengthy? … Ye road thodi chhoti nahi ho sakti thi.” I cursed the length of road two days ago in fear of being late. I used to become late daily in my routine morning works before going to college. And the worst part was the road from my home to the taxi stand. I daily used to curse that road for being too long as it takes at least …
