Flash Fiction

Shadow Journey

David Paul Ohmer: Chicago – Michigan Avenue Bridge Steps “Railing Shadows”

We started where most lovers do —
that starry-eyed place lit by candles.
Our tongues mapped each other’s bodies.

Next time,
his teeth stenciled a crescent moon.
Color rose, red to violet.

Next time,
the marks were stripes
light and dark, side by side, a repeating pattern,
a codependency.

Dark giving birth to light.

This is my contribution to the Friday 55 at G-man’s blog. He has a great “Flash” this week. See what he and the other Friday 55 Flashers have done here.
