Soft white curtains stirred in the gentle wind,sunlight casting a gentle glow on the mohogany table beside the bed,illuminating the crystal vase sitting there,and the well worn book sitting beside it.The words were etched on the cover in gold gilt,but faded almost until they matched the color of the book itself. Next to it,the bed sat empty,the patchwork quilt worn with age,but bright and cheerful,the bedspread beneath matching the fabric of the curtains,both being materials of a much earlier age.The pale coral walls gave off a gentle pink glow in …

“She eats your face!” Desiree, she hides behind my back, clutching my t-shirt making the collar choke me a little. “She eats your face and cuts off your ears!” Rebecca grabs my elbow and hisses, “I heard when you see her, you get so scared your eyes lock open and that’s how she reaches in and steals your soul!” Duane kicks the back of my legs and calls me a fag. “Do it, dude.” Truth is, he’s just as spooked as the rest of us, all four pale faces staring …

The waiting room was not that crowded.  I sat waiting to see the doctor.  What’s the holdup?  It was eleven forty five.  My appointment was for eleven o’clock.  I had read the newspaper.  I also read two People magazines, one Golf Digest and a two year old copy of a health magazine with the picture of an open stomach cavity showing upper and lower intestines much to my dislike.  It reminded me too much of those CSI shows on television that take you inside the autopsy rooms. They show the …

I took it upon myself to see to the burial of my father. Each week twenty three tons of trash in and around the city was collected, compacted and delivered to the dump. My father was the man who woke up at four thirty every morning, except Sunday, to dress himself, eat breakfast (two eggs and a single piece of dry toast), drink a quick cup coffee and be out the door by five A.M so that twenty minutes later he was revving the engine of a rear loader just …

My stomach is so delicate Rolaids give me heartburn.  For fifty years, I could eat anything I wanted at any time of the day or night and go to bed and sleep like a baby.  Now, at my age, things have drastically changed. If I eat a taco with mild salsa, not the hot sauce, the spots of which fall onto your new shirt every time you wear it.  The sauce that is so hot it can burn a hole in the fabric, but the mild sauce, the one that …

My name is Ruth Hill. They killed me in the woods behind Hayswood Hospital on All Hallow’s Eve in 1966, and this is my story. Someone has to hear it, because people need to know the truth. I wasn’t what you’d call one of those popular girls. My mom was a widow and I was the oldest of six kids, so we were poor. One of the rooms in our house had a dirt floor. We lived on food stamps and our water didn’t work half the time, so I …

A friend of mine once asked, “Ok! answer me. Chicken or Egg?”. In reply  I asked, “You mean for Breakfast, or Lunch?”. The friend rephrased the question , “What came first? The chicken or the Egg?”. “Do you want the answer or an insight?”, I bounced the ball back into his court. Some questions never have answers, in other-words, people never find them. I have never been motivated to find the answer for that question, but I have questioned myself a million times, why do people ask such questions at …

Jonah woke one morning to the bright sun shining through the window of his bedroom.  It was  a day like every other day; with one difference; today God woke him out of a sound sleep with a command. “Jonah, arise, go to Ninevah that great city, and cry out against it.” You have got to be kidding me, he thought.  Ninevah?  Why, that is the capital of the worst empire on the planet.  They are a nation of violence who love to torture their enemies.  They are the most feared …
