Eldon Rook Dust Bunnies – Part 1

“I had always seen things out of the corner of my eye. A shadowy figure who turned out to be a bush with a lamp post behind it, or a cat where none should be that was actually a pile of laundry. It’s that feeling you get when you have had little sleep and your imagination is doing its best to interpret the world while being handicapped by fatigue. Sometimes we are startled and sometimes …

Many Years

Many years…. how they pass. I am so young only thirty about to be thirty one. Yet even in my youthful vigor I have found my bones drained of their marrow and my arms weak like sparrow wings. The weight of knowledge and adult hood tapped a drain hole in the lower part of my soul and has drained me of all motivation. Only leaving obligation and a begrudging yes. I have done for so …

Salvation Letters: wooden armor

Dear Brother, I am writing this letter so that you may come to know the truths and salvation that I have come to live. As you know for some time our country has lived in anarchy.

I punch the door release and hold my breath as the the door slides open. A single corridor stands before me running left to right. Johnny Cash plays softly to the left so I go right no need to seek revenge. The …

On The Wings of Moths

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder, Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made; I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy power throughout the universe displayed. It echos faintly through the crawl spaces, halls and walls of the Aposolith. I think the artist is Johnny Cash. When I get quiet enough to hear it, my blood boils. The Aposolith is a womb of sorts. My own universe they told …

When I Could Not See The Sun

Moon and an space man

It was so small so insignificant. It pierced the hull of my ship the Aposolith letting in the greedy vacuum of space. I wore my space suite constantly as a precaution against such things. After the red warning lights stopped and the alarms quit screeching I moved through the Aposolith looking for what had done the damage. I found it. It seemed to be your run of the mill micro asteroid but when I reached …
