French Fries

I found Jorge in the mess eating replicated french fries. Well, all the food aboard Anne Oakley was replicated but you know what I mean. He was eating very obviously fake replicated french fries, as opposed to french fries lovingly assembled molecule-by-molecule to fool you into thinking they were real potatoes. I mean these things looked like plastic, and even came in a cartoon red holder emblazoned with a golden yellow W. I nudged the yellow W as I sat across from Jorge. "McDonald’s,” he explained before I could ask. “Restaurant of the ancients. People used to drive their personal vehicles into the building to buy their food.” I grunted. Stole one of Jorge’s fries, popped it into my mouth. It was crisp, salty, fluffy inside, with an overtone of-- “This tastes like... animal protein,” I whispered. “Calm down,” Jorge munched, “replicated animal protein. The original formulation for these were cooked in beef tallow. There isn’t a beef within 200 lightyears of our current

Blood From a Far Off Place

Quiver full of bullet tipped arrows. The bow of aluminum my dad made in high school. I step into the sunlight on the south side of the house. I'm 12. I don't know why I pull the bowstring back to my eye, aim upward, and loose. Straight above my head. And the voice said,    "You are a most common creature, though of a peculiar people." The Sun glints off the arrow's shaft. I shade my eyes and wonder how long before the arrow hits me. How long before I step aside. How long to decipher a riddle from a lipless voice. Now I'm 16. These days, I fire two arrows above my head. Wondering. Hoping. Bring back that voice. One arrow. Two seconds la

love people

"We call everything a river here."                     --Richard Brautigan there's a love parade this sunday beautiful blue and white houses spill children into the street like beads of happy colored glass-- music all over. the trees are spring, fall, and summer, apricot angels green yellow maples all love people two moons to a face I think of a quiet pebbled stream in this moonlight and a younger woman, like a single brush of ink, dipping softly, as the pebbled stream dips, into winter, or untimed wild.

Three Cities

1:  Öb.  The Tall City The botfly-woman was anxious, as if there might have been ants, hiding in ambush; she’d landed on the lip of the central chimney and circled sun-wise, as demanded by ritual.  It was always easy to confuse the botfly with the hirsute ground-dwelling wasp, but botfly-women knew to circle any city chimney, sun-wise; botfly women knew to fan their wings and wet any ample number their hairs with spittle, before plucking those strands and dropping them into the depths of the city to announce their arrival. The botfly-woman had done this, signaling her presence and her harmless intentions to the city below, and Th
