The Last Day of JuneIt had been a long, hot day and Redshirt Dave, Jane Doe, Mary Sue and Main Protagonist of Indeterminate Gender were cooling off on the shaded deck of their back garden enjoying the sunset. Main Protagonist of Indeterminate Gender was just reflecting on how uneventful the world had been lately when they were rudely interrupted by a loud droning noise overhead.
Our heroes looked up to determine the source of the noise but as none of them had x-ray vision today it was of no use. Jane Doe immediately volunteered to leave the shade to investigate but was pulled back in to safety by the others as the entire back garden was suddenly lit up in a glowing turqoise. Strange creatures started appearing before them, pixelating in the turqoise glow as if they'd beamed there from a spaceship--which, on reflection, it seemed quite likely they had. The creatures were roughly a foot tall and no two were the same colour. When ten of them were in the yard the turqoise glow died down and the creatures look

ExhaleI love the marks that a woman’s clothes leave on her body. I love the red indents and the proof of a long day before she even opens her mouth.
Tight socks circumventing ankle bones. A watch cutting a bit too tightly around a pulse. The alluringly simple bra straps; wire pressing up into the impossibly soft undersides of breasts; the cryptic clasp nestled between shoulder blades. The imprint of lace and elastic on the taut tender tendon of the inner thigh. The geography of jeans around the hips and trailing along the legs like railroad tracks. The line on her cheek from when she fell asleep on the bus home.
I love the luxurious sigh when it all puddles to the floor, shedding this artificial skin. Remnants of weariness leave whispers on the body.
And after all she has been through, she still comes to me and allows me to trace these whispers with my fingertips, eyes, lips. She doesn't cover herself and doesn't hide and lets me in.
We leave the lights on.
