PAST NOW: A figment of imagination? He was inclined to be vulnerable as his past lives came. But as the therapist died, he knew he was a serial killer.

Ideas absent
Screen activity absent
Why was this App sent?

FREE: No such thing as a free lunch? I never believed it, so I went to one. Okay, they were strange and I was wrong. I never even got to eat me.

In a moment, born
Progression of moments, life
In a moment, gone

PLANET FALL: The starship didn’t stay long on Plausible. All that could be done, the people did. Replicators rebuilt the planet after each destruction.

Dark matter absent
The Cosmos won’t play our math
Grey matter confused

It is useless now
The answer is in the word
Why don’t we use less?

HOLLOW: He had to banish horror from his life – be pure, no nightmares, terrors, evil. And he became the Hollow Man.

Frights unlimited
When enough terrors in life
No one reads horror

Science, religion
Ways of thinking poles apart

MY STORY: It was my story but it just didn’t seem to go right. Life’s a harsh writer and I ended up crumpled, like a discarded piece of paper by the typewriter.
