Written for 3 Line Tales


From my worst nightmare, the silvery gaping treads of the escalator rise slowly toward an unseen destination.

Since you disappeared, my dreams are filled with searches that ultimately lead to gaping mouthed abysses into which I fall, scrambling to grab onto nothing but swift air as I careen down.

Certainty tells me, the answer waits above, but as I draw nearer, the belt snaps and the steps of the escalator arch upward like a cobra until gravity catapults them toward me.
