Written by

Penny, the new kid on the block, stood in front of an old, rickety house along with two new-found friends.

Say the only dream you ever had was blue, a cool brilliance that engulfs everything in the universe.

All you know of your place in the monochromatic Everything is webbed feet, jewel fingers and a certain unnamable longing. You reach upward and out, straining to grasp the hazy glow of a distant light in your palms.

Perish the Thought

“If this boat hits one more swell, I swear I’ll hurl that slop they called breakfast back up on the deck.”

Venus–AKA Captain Eyepatch’s gravelly complaint dragged Terra back to the here and now.
