Xray specs transpire back-ahead to the alpha-dog tango.
Step-passed in future-tense. Is here. We meet in uniform echo, while Red Army thugs cross lines sideways, ripe in harvest. Present passed by in zipped-up, con-job fiction. Where’s future-Charlie? Lost to the Yankee whiskey, while Romeo happily frigs Juliette. In 26 steps; I feel her pressed past, the only solid in a fluid wall outside a hotel room in India. Something comes to visit. In the middle of my hand stirs a triangle.
Next. Ahead a-ready. In Lima. Was that before? Or Around? Is here. Go. Play golf. Do what Charlie likes. Soon. The dialectic splits…
…distilled to the sub-atomic by Soviet scientists. I? Shimmered smooth inside Sierra. Her thighs move close, slinky. Next. Or been. Does it matter? Is here. Soon. These voices. Not mine.
When. After that, ahead somewhere in Quebec, Delta smiles, her lips moist, remote, scuttling the Foxtrot. Mike I call myself; moving with clumsy feet; stabbing for an Oscar as death clings sweet. Now. Already. Is Here. Before. Her body slides close. The gun slugs slow. I crouch. And read. Is here. The code. Trailing from a head-wound. Make any sudden move. Soon someone will lose. Ahead. An eye. Someone tell me. Is here. Mike? 26 ways. I die. Sometime in November. Mike. Mike hates golf.
Future 1oh1. Now. Is Here. Later. Before. Repeat. Ahead. All you need is breathe. They say. Is here. From the no-when near to the land of the Zulu. Bye bye bye. Papa Lennon lied. I put it to the kilo – to the victor goes the nosh. Pile on. Ahead.
One point. Around I. 90 degrees. The wall moves. Shimmers. 26. The future. Already. Been.
Bio ~ Mark Hobby.
I am a published writer from Sydney, Australia, able to write on a variety of different topics in an engaging and entertaining way. I have a wide range of interests, from film and art criticism, multi-media and alternative fictional history, critical theory and occultism, martial arts and political theory, as well as sci-fi, satire and the absurd. This focus provides me with a multitude of perspectives that contribute to work that is both punchy and multi-layered, and which can be easily transferable to different mediums.
My work has appeared in diverse publications, from Blitz Martial Arts Magazine, Ceramics: Art and Perception and Metro, multi-media works like Wish in collaboration with projection artist Cindi Drennan and in a variety of comic books like Commando, Fistful of Comics and Decay.
