Walking Through Lod

As I walk through the old city of Lod, in Israel, row after row of tall beige buildings pass me by. Lifeless, dull, stacked like Lego bricks. Washing lines hang from some of the open windows, clothes attached, drying in the sun. A man exits a block of flats as a tin-can car goes past... Continue Reading →

Fake Fur & False Confidence

'Take it!' a woman spits her words at me with aggression, throwing an item in my direction. I smile a well rehearsed pretend smile as her long fur coat now lay upon my slender arm.

Day after day I sit and watch as the boats of its' inhabitants invade our waters come sunrise. A number of vessels pass me by... Continue Reading →

When We Were Young

I still remember that day. The day when I lost him. Jamie and I would stay with our Aunt Isabelle every other weekend, we would watch old movies together whilst eating her famous sugar cookies. He would always have one too many, the greedy pig. Isabelle used to warn him about the 'tummy tickles' but... Continue Reading →

Mirror, Mirror

Kenneth James was an ordinary man with an extraordinary ego. He had achieved many things in his seventy-two years of life. As he stood in the master bedroom of his estate, fire roaring and silk curtains blowing with the assistance of the violent wind, he recalled some of his life's greatest moments. He began with...

Vanity in Peach

My pale skin glimmers in the artificial light of the dressing room, mimicking the ivory tone of my vanity table. "Is this what beauty looks like?" I ask aloud, knowing perfectly well that no answer would be given. I was alone, my bare feet cold against the hardwood floors, but still beautiful. I gaze into... Continue Reading →
