Minuet for Inkwell and Lectern

Published by

“I’ve been writing more lately,” she says as she reaches toward the Pen floating in mid-air.
It changes orbit and pierces her hand; blood, bright upon her skin.
She reaches toward the Book.
Gasping, she begins to open it.
The echoes of her screams take a long time to subside.

Pen and Book resume their dance.
