Historical Microfiction, Yay!

Teeny wee short story set at 3:00 in the morning on March 6th, 1788, in Kyoto, Japan. What happened that day? The biggest unattributed case of arson the world had ever seen. One person (presumably) burned down a huge percentage of the city, due to massive winds that jumped fire breaks and surrounded firefighters. It burned for three days and took down the royal palace. I can’t find a reference on the internet, but it’s the Tenmei fire if you’re interested.

Inspired by this fabulous picture by the princely RivkaZ and Seven Devils by Florence + The Machine. However, there is only one devil in the story. Perhaps each great fire has its own devil…? I do not know.

550 words.

Summary: Aiko doesn’t want to look, but the orange light won’t stop flickering, and she is too afraid not to.

A Couple of Sad Things

I wrote these in high school, when I was really into abusive relationships. (Unlike some people, I actually did understand that these relationships were abusive; I just thought it was hot, and was proud of being messed up. Forgive me. We were all teenagers once.) I still really like them, so here you go: enjoy, or don’t. 

Also, the first one was published in my college literary magazine, so that’s cool.

TW emotional abuse.

POEM: Sharpener (this started out as a joke piece about pencil sharpeners and penises (some guy was being a jerk to me, so I threatened him in a ridiculous way to get him to leave me alone, but it was high school, so it didn’t work), and ended up somewhere completely different.)

STORY: This is the Alphabet (Inspired by this haiku from a haiku generator: around his ass cheeks / and over his low back this / is the alphabet. NSFW)
