straight down the line


I was recently challenged to come up with a short story based off of 10 random words…

eh. why not.

here are the 10 words: believable, appeal, apparent, dry, feather, swollen, decontamination, sweat, almond, hairy.

let’s see what I can do with these!


Sometimes the most believable and apparent beauty about a person is their decontamination. The casting off of dry sweat accumulated through a lifetime of greed and hairy fingers grabbling at their throats to reveal something pure and simplistic. Swollen, filled with the putrid recess of greed the decontamination is the removal of toxins. Toxins that dull the tastes like cheap vodka on a lonely Sunday night. The night is vodka. The dawn a glass of cold almond milk.
