I am Joe's coffin I hold the screaming Joe inside

I am Joe's coffin I held the screaming Joe inside

Think about the pandas who wont screw to save their species as dead. Think about the open dump valves on oil tankers as empty and the smothered French beaches you'd never see as ruined. Think about not just breathing smoke, but about your black, dead lungs that wont take a new, fresh gasp of air while you are being fed with oxygen though a tube that goes into your open trachea.

What goes after 'ruined'? What is worse than 'dead'? Is there even something?

Think about being in your funeral, but you are awake and no one can see that. You are frozen. Look at poor Joe. He lived a good life. But you can't move. I am alive, Joe says and no one listens, I am conscious.

Don't close the coffin.

Don't throw me in a hole.

Don't bury me.

Don't forget me.

But Joe can't move. You are frozen.

Rise up, my zombies.
Conquer and eat and buy shit.
No. No more pills please.

Darren Powell: Very nice read. Lots of surprising treats from: Schrodinger’s cat and dervish dance forms; to sensei masters and brownian motion.

Maryam Rehman: The story was overall amazingly penned down. I loved how the story transitioned from the lavish city of London to the war torn Aleppo.

Kastril Nomenclature: What a fascinating work: a photo that seems to reveal a strange figure in the window of an old hotel leads to a mystery about a missing page of Queen Victoria's diary!

Katie Matthias: I've finished the first three chapters of "Ladies Close Your Eyes" and was so engrossed, I had to write a review immediately.

CornflowerBlues: I'm liking everything about this story so far: the brazen detective, the way he gave in to temptation, the temptation (<3!!), and the unexpectedly complex backdrop of his job and the case he's working. The story is well written, and despite its erotica tag, has an intriguing detective story and a...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.
