Innocence

If I could brush my lips across your skin anew. Escape the gravity well of all the other skins I have tasted. Unknow the inevitable knowing of what comes next. Erase the salt of sweat, the sensation of a live thing against my mouth. Unburden myself of expectation and the dull surety of history. Discover…

How We Read

It’s my intention to try and document the journey of my way towards a PhD as transparently as possible. So amidst the pieces of fiction I post, you’re going to see the occasional essay dealing with subjects related to my focus. If you’re only here for the erotica, you might want to skip these. If…

Fast Forward – 2

(continued from part 1) The old man looks down at the scattered photographs, moving them into some semblance of order. His nails are neat, but his knuckles are thickened by years of injury. “You could have come to me.” She wheezes a laugh. “Turned up on your doorstep? What would you have done then?” “Fucked…

Fast Forward

“Is this the bed on which I took your heart?” The photograph she holds is old, the colours faded, spotted like the skin on the back of her hand. Then, with surprising dexterity, her ancient fingers flick the photograph across the table like a dealer at a poker table. It slides to a stop just…

Four Gogyohkas

Damp skin, Creviced and hidden. A flesh maze for my tongue to run. To scent you and know with molecular certainty that you are mine. ‡ I’m possessed of you, like a ghost chained in place, or a farmer burdened of land, there’s no relinquishing the possession. To own is to be owned. ‡ Moments…

The editor, Robert James Russell, describes the anthology thus: Sex Scene: An Anthology aims to decontextualize sex, asking the reader to look at the…

Sex Positive – A NSFW Rant

Upfront, I’ll admit it – I’m not all that visually oriented. I find language infinitely more erotic than images – probably because there is space in language for me to create my own mental imagery that suits me better.  That said, there is certainly some visual porn that turns me on. And there’s a whole…

Your Persona – Twitter Culture and Creativity

I’m slowly but surely honing down my area of interest for my PhD. I know it’s going to involve a creative project aspect and a critical piece. I’m incredibly intrigued by the possibilities of creating fiction for and on twitter. The challenge of writing on the fly, the performance art aspect of doing it real…

Chemically Sane

The drug smiles for me reptilian and affable it moves I follow The slow blink deciphers not light from dark, motion from static, marks time only out of habit The cool embrace of a limbo where distance is measured in bodily functions and solipsism This is peace: cottonmouthed mute and clamorous silence is my retreat,…
