There was a body down in the creek. Everyone knew it was there because that kind of news travels fast through whispers and police reports. However when the authorities went to retrieve it they could not find it. A week later t… Read full post »
It was so hot things mummified instead of decaying. The brittle skeletons of former life lay all around with small bugs feasting on the little bits of flesh still fresh. The air was still with only the caw of the crows who had been happy to feast on the snake… Read full post »
This open call really stumped me. I don't think I have learned a thing but just keep mulling over the same stuff round and round. Maybe I learn one thing and then immediately act like I didn't learn it at all.
