Litany Against Trolls

I must not engage. Engagement is the time-killer. Engagement is the little trap that brings total exasperation. I will face this obvious attempt to start a pointless and frustrating argument. I will permit the temptation to engage to pass over me and through me. And when I have scrolled down I will look at the screen where it was. Where the troll has gone, there will be nothing. Only pictures of cats and other people’s children and food will remain.

  • Old Man Bradley's Ghost (flash fiction)  Some people swore that the house was haunted.  It sat apart from the other houses in the neighborhood, decaying slowly as we grew older. (more…)
  • Emergence (flash fiction) Out of death must come life.  A new cycle must be begun. (more…)
