Awakening

[by Jessica Lentz] That day, the earth beneath our feet started shaking, out of the blue. First it felt like a soft, murmuring vibration running through my body. I stopped in my steps, took out an earbud. Lifted my gaze. In a few seconds’ time, it became stronger. The murmur rose into a roaring cry […]

Twenty-Cent Coin

(Text by Cosimo Suglia) Diversity is the appreciation of differences — it makes us, us. Look down. Past the generated clouds, sliding on the olympic-blue sky. Past the mammoth trees and coral-dressed skyscrapers. Away from the docks, where fish farmers feed their crops. Slight waves slap against bio-concrete jetties. The rabbit man walks on water. […]

Give Time time

(Text by Otilia Dragan) Time visited me today again, during work. She sat on my lap, her long, flimsy fingers playing  with a wavy patch of my hair and made me sway along with her in my office chair. “Time, come on, I told you to stop showing up like this. How am I supposed […]

The engineer

(Text by Patrick Vedie) “A very long time ago, I made up a universe, all by myself. I say, ‘by myself’, I was just a kid then, and the grown-ups always overestimate children’s imagination, and it probably wasn’t that original.

The Dryness of Being

(Text by Pierre Feltz) Peter is nervous and something deep seated is bothering him tonight. Peter is laying in his bed and, as it is most nights, he scratches his dry scalp and combs through his unkempt, brown hair with his bloody, dry-skin hands. Despite the redness, and irritated nature of his skin, and, the […]

Aus dem Schiffsbuch der Salteema

(Text by Luc François) Salteema Schiffsbuch-Eintrag 2486 Ich habe die Stille zwischen den Sternen nie recht ertragen. Mein Leben lang habe ich sie als trügerisch empfunden, ihr Versprechen von zeitloser Abgeschiedenheit hat sie wieder und wieder gebrochen. Immer nur kurz lädt sie zum Verweilen ein, bevor der nächste Halt ruft: Ein weiterer Handel, ein neuer […]
