THE NICEBERG

July 11, 2017

The niceberg decided to move to Antarctica. It crafted the route of its sojourn carefully so as to avoid accidentally sinking any ships. Off it sailed.

‘Look out. I’m an iceberg on my way to Antarctica, and if you are within the sound of my voice, be aware of my approach and take the necessary precautions. I wouldn’t want any sort of an accident to occur,’ shouted the niceberg at regular intervals.

‘Hey, berg, what’s your deal?’ asked a curious orca who happened to be passing by.

‘I’m moving to Antarctica. Won’t you join me? I could watch you frolic and offer praise,’ said the niceberg.

‘Thanks, but no thanks. I’m married to a polar bear,’ replied the orca.

So the niceberg, unaccompanied, floated carefully along until it reached Antarctica. It made many friends and was so nice Global Warming didn’t even have the heart to melt it. And when the rest of the world was a cinder, the niceberg thrived.

OUT OF THE BLUE

July 4, 2017

The man, barefoot, wearing a threadbare formerly green coat and tattered formerly red pants, perched in silence on the edge of the lone chair in the barren room. His face was a frozen mask of indifference. Sunlight from the window slid in slow geometry across the floor to while away the hours. The man remained there, perched, motionless. He spoke only once after many hours and before many more hours until he perched dead on the edge of the lone chair in the barren room.

He said, ‘I think it’s good.’
