🤖💰Robotical Economics💰🤖

On Saturday, I observed the Artificial Intelligence (AI) watch me. Wifey and I looked to book plane flights using my rewards points. Being 2K points shy of 2 tickets, we purchased 4K points thanks to a 40% off promo. Then I returned to the app which mandated a screen...

Lost in Place

Lost in Place

I lay in my hammock for the first time in Summer. The sun has fallen so stars can shine in the risen night. I look up and say, “This is heaven.” The outer space I watch is the original screen from past days. It was the most watched screen before wall-hung and handheld...

The Power of disBelief

The Power of disBelief

The indicators implied it was inside me. The pain. The dizziness. The digestive irregularities. The anemia. The sample results. The blood counts. The weakness. I’d never met a major malfunction with my body prior to 2019 - so these experiences jarred me to say the...

A Portrait of Pain

A Portrait of Pain

This story is about the boy known as the Red Koi. He briefly self-assigned this name, but his narrative will now transition from third to first. In a first person: I stand in agony. Then I sit. My fist meets the ground to maintain stability. Wife texts me photos of...

Memorized Mess

The United States of Consciousness

The United States of Consciousness

Are we tense or intense? What's the difference when both result in a grimace? Nothing makes sense since losing presence. If it’s gone for good, we can't be convinced. All seemed picture perfect at first glimpse, But after overdosing on emptiness, And realizing our...

I Killed a Darling, and I Liked It

I Killed a Darling, and I Liked It

The darling revisited our past pages:   “You said such nice things in the beginning.”   “You weaved sweet and savory.”   “You wrote like each word was our first.” Being a determined storyteller, I played the part between the page:   "It’s not me, it’s you.”   “You...

Wishing the World Away

Wishing the World Away

"I wish to wash away her wishy washy ways." I made this wish known in a poem. It wasn’t my best writing at the time. Wishy washy were her ways though, Until one day, my wish came true. Can one create whatever one wishes? What does one wish to create? What is created...

The Art of Aging Out

The Art of Aging Out

Another birthday not remembered. It’s not that I forgot the 411 about my birthday. It’s that I don’t remember the day I exited her womb. Yet I was raised to celebrate this unremembered event. After all, this is the day when my life really began. At least that’s what...

Knock. Knock.

Knock. Knock.

Knock. Knock. I open the door. A man shares that he’s arrived to bush hog my grounds. I tell him he must have the wrong address. But he tells me my property is the one just beyond the cemetery. I do not tell him my previous property 2,000 miles away was also the one...

I walk into The Land & Water. A bartender tells me to sit anywhere I like. I ask the waitress her name. “Kayla,” she says. “Look, I’m going to make this really easy. Water with no ice and 10-piece sashimi,” I say. She verifies my lack of allergies and departs.  I...
