London, July 2016

Standard

Frame me here
pin me to this evening
of summer dresses and topless
joggers running from business
into a bustling busy city
that wakes at the close
that gathers its strength
that swipes the day clean again
loses its filters and sheens
that walks close to its lovers
its friends its followers
make this night a hashtag
make it viral in its living beating buzz
make it sing make it dance in the street
make it jump to reach its signs:

the world is not ending
any time soon
we have more nights to write
more walks to write
more books to write
more smiles to write
more plans to write
more to write
than we possibly can
in just this one worldful

NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 18 – Sith Happens

Standard

All I hear are the sounds of lightsabers.
The Dark Side is around us,
but we do serve your kind here.

When shit was real
the Sith lived in peace –
only imaginary battles.

N’hésitez pas à dénoncer auprès de l’Empire
do not hesitate to report to the Empire
the range in generations of people
falling in love with the new suit.

How much lost at the hands+
of a Jedi Princess?
There are no words to
ingest, transform, analyze
one of my all time favorites:
pink Chewbacca.

Así se ven los protagonistas
So the protagonists are
also still on a nerd-high
and I must ask all of you:
do or do not?
(There is no try.)

I seem to have a theme running, and sometimes it twinkles.

As always, the site is miniaturestory.org, and it is wonderful. Always.

140Story – Another one

Another small story to capture the immensity of reality? Probably accurate.

New year, new short short stories – and this one is definitely not inspired by my Italian grandmother. She hates rhymes.

140story – Star Wars edition

Standard

If you’re even slightly into film, media, popular culture and geek culture, you’ll have noticed that there is something stirring in the Star Wars universe right now. With that in mind, I thought I’d drop in to 140story and contribute a themed tiny Twitter tale.

If you’re anywhere around Norwich this Thursday, make sure to drop by The Forum at 7.15 for UEA Live! with Tash Aw, and a host of 140story writers!
