I am happy to have this week’s Tuesdaytales Judgemasters take over:Ruler of #MenageMonday flashfiction challenge& SIX time winner of #tuesdaytales
@hlpauff / Shades of V for Vendetta and Equilibrium… A man silenced for his convictions. Love the final moment of knowing the son will carry on his father’s work.
@lissajean7 Alissa / “I need something incendiary to feel real again.” Love this line, and the overall sensation of life and reality fogged by a lack of certainty and direction.
JM Filipowicz / Persistence in the face of hopelessness. Loved your Incendiary Man, especially his closing line: “Still I feel as dry as yellowed grass and live in fear of the spark…”
Author of Wardroids, an ebook coming in 2013 from Double Dragon Publishing.
J M Filipowicz lives in a quiet condo on the surface of the moon.
The shower is the safest place for an incendiary man. Like my father, I might spontaneously combust. His ashes were taken by the autumn breeze leaving nothing for my mother to bury. She waits by the window, imagining him alive. I cannot leave her that way. Each morning I wash until my skin shrivels. At work, I keep a case of water at my desk, excusing myself every fifteen minutes to moisten my face and hands in the washroom sink. Still I feel as dry as yellowed grass and live in fear of the spark that will mean my end.
Everyone spread the word of the HMS, WINNER and @caramichaels for the awesome judgemastery!
