PodCastle Miniature 97: When I Had Eyes, I Didn’t See

by Anna Yeatts
read by Dani Daly
hosted by Jen Albert
First published in Penumbra

Rated R for disturbing themes and imagery

I had eyes once.
Before the Lift-man came.
Now I have knobs, smooth and black and round as pegs. I touch them with my fingertips and try to remember what it felt like, having eyes.
If I push one knob in, the other one pops out like the elevator buttons used to do.
There used to be a brass plate mounted on the wall next to the elevator’s cage with two smooth black pegs. I pushed in the top peg to go up. The bottom peg popped out. Gears ground, cables groaned, and the elevator clanked down to the lobby.

I always lock the door when I creep by daylight.

What a delightfully creepy ghost story.

All cat stories start with this statement: “My mother, who was the first cat, told me this...”

What a delightfully creepy ghost story.

Says the editor of Pseudopod!  (I agree. I love the darkness of this one.)
