No. 3014

Damn Normal Doors. By CpSingleton © 2016
He drops the Harry Harrison to the floor.

Not because he didn’t enjoy the read.

Quite the opposite.

An underestimated author was old HH. Maybe the most.
The well-thumbed paperback that sat yawning beside his feet was a collection of shorts on one fantastic subject and

The pitfalls that framed inventing such a contraption.
The reader sees only the romance that would flower with said 

Wondrous device:

No more dodgy air flights;

The sea could rage to it hearts content; and

The countryside would have its peace once again.
He could hop into her arms, taste the heat and her river of need, allow their separate rhythms to match for a short time, taste her foreign tea and then be back for the day’s regional news. 
He stood and traipsed, with a certain difficulty to the conventional door that led only to his boring kitchen.

No lips or delicate skin awaited him, bent from the back and throbbing, as he limped to the sink and reached for the blue tap.

“Damn normal doors,” he groaned, as he turned the faucet. 


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.

  1. No time to snark. It’s such a travesty. I’ll just be nice, damnit. Wonderful poem. Very lyrical and engaging. Whimsical and a bit sensual…. Blah…blah…blah…door.
    ..whore…bore.. bore. bore.. snore.. snore.. snore…

  2. Stiff cheese, Mates. That’s it. Stiff cheese. Probably wrapped in Aluminium, and stored in the fridge behind the pickled eggs.
