    Our resident hallucination, the witty, Irish poet Mitch Lang returns to the bridge

Investing in Futures

I stood on the balcony, inhaling deeply, slowly, bathing my lungs with the fresh air of the early morning, enjoying the sound of bird orchestras, and the faint echoes of man and machine coming from the invisible boulevard behind the dancing clusters of whispering trees. Julia, from the flat directly below, walks through the yard; it’s time for work. Her … Continue reading

Drake’s Prayer

Martin Drake relaxed in a warm bath of soothing salts and caressing bubbles, to candle light and Garfunkel’s guitar. A large snifter of Hennessy Paradis Extra enhances the moment, as he ruminates over the comforts of home and his life thus far. Just beyond his retreat, the children sleep, and Denise sits cosy on the … Continue reading

Two

Two There are 5 words to say 25 things about the 10 most dishonest people at the Forbes Top 100 companies created in the last 50 years whereby 4 of those 10 are excluded for 9 reasons due to threats of litigation but we can say that in the last 7 years 6 founding CEOs … Continue reading

Please Stand Back

Please Stand Back Eberswalder Strasse, East Berlin. A busy junction. The traffic came from six directions, and in the middle are mammoth foundations of steel and heavy stone carrying the weight of the trains rumbling their way over the suspended tracks into the covered tunnel overhead.  Alex Ferry loves trains, the designs, the sound, the voice on the … Continue reading

Brothers in Arms

Brothers In Arms Fifty years of tears plus ten forever and some more lived upon the shores of Samaria and Gaza. Is that so? the world does ask quick forgotten as the grass is the present future torture, seizure checkpoints, closure and a wall with many names that say this man is an animal untamed. … Continue reading

Rent is too damn High

“for the student, the sleepless & the heart-broken” Rent Can’t sleep can’t eat for weeks on end staring at a screen trying to get good grades and still failed with an empty refrigerator and professors crying “encore encore.” Another day goes by with burning eyes refuse to close or fade to black or cut me … Continue reading

Smoke Signals

Flash Fiction. Is short. Industry gate-keepers coalesce around 500 words. Beyond that, is motion blur. In China, long ago, it flourished as ‘the smoke long‘ story, done when your cigarette is. Of course, cigarettes were much shorter back then. There’s no need to ‘light up’ now, this will all be over in a flash. Irish … Continue reading

Bishop takes Queen

Here we are. Have a look in this store window. Show some interest in those wares. Look harder – spy her between the mannequins sitting behind the counter reading. Scribbling. Reading. Florida Müller. She glances up and outward and squints a little with pricked interest at a possible discovery, and I am loath to see … Continue reading

Restless Nights in One-night Cheap Hotels

I am currently a graduate student of history, struggling to maintain my sanity (I hope my efforts are working). I specifically study race and gender, so sorry for the overload. I enjoy writing in my free time and find writing to be a positive outlet (example of negative outlet: alcohol) for stress.
