The space-marines walked right past the poor dead bastard, and lined up to squeeze through the rupture they’d made. Our displays went dark moments after the last one disappeared inside the moon base. We were cut off.

Everything we’ve done as a species will pale in comparison to what we will accomplish in the next 100 years. Society, technology, and our natural curiosity will be interwoven in novel and exciting ways that will ignite our potential as a people.

The insect alien from Epsilon E looks at the chess board. “Queen to King’s Rook 3,” it says using a voice synthesizer. “Checkmate.”
Mr. Slim smiles. He sees now that the creatures won’t stop until they have complete control. There’s only one thing left to do.

Ain’t that a Shame

Gran was 101 when Fats played Ain’t that a Shame on the radio. She loved it & we got the record – 15 cents at a music shop. It was the last song she listened to. The wake was at the house- normal back in ’56. You know the song we listened to. Shame, she sure is missed.

Bad day at the mine. Blew the horn early. Little Twitch, the jumpy kid – only 13 – he died. He took the TNT deep in the rock and got buried when it went off. They got that song about Clementine going down a mine, but young Twitch, he was a real 49er.

Overwhelming Grief

They came from Canis Venatici: invaders from the Milky Way’s own satellite galaxy. We defeated them, but just barely. Now, we’re stricken with overwhelming grief that only a few of us remain to pepper the stars– a burning memorial instead of an empire.
