Flash: Waiting Up for Father

By Greg van Eekhout

Read by Jonathan Chaffin, and put to music by Instant Ambient (a side project of The Secret Life).

Jars line shelves like delicacies in a shop.

Hands clutch brown water.

Eyes and ears and tongues bob lazily in their containers.

Testicles lie shriveled against cold glass.

I have seen these things many times in many ways.

Listen to this week's Pseudopod.

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

This was a decent flash piece with interesting elements.  Not enough happened to keep me riveted for a long time, but for a flash piece it was just right.

odd is a good word for this one.

Oh, great and mighty Alasdair, Orator Maleficent, He of the Silvered Tongue, guide this humble fangirl past jumping up and down and squeeing upon hearing the greatness of Thy voice.
Oh mighty Mur the Magnificent. I am not worthy.
