Pairs

Author: John Albertson The dinner bell rings, and we line up in pairs. My pair today is Veronica. I don’t like her. I take a plate from the VendingLady – brown MEET, maybe synthbeef, with powdery mash and what they call gravy but my mum would have called dishwater….

Why the Next World War Won’t Start Here

Author: Stuart K Watson As I wake, I think: Today would be a great day to start the next world war. I look outside. The lawn is still there, with the neighbor’s scooter lying on its side in the middle of it. Unwarranted incursion. The trees are still standing. Birds…
