Tempt (an acrostic poem)

There was the dark chocolate truffle right there

Egging him on to consume and enjoy the ephemeral experience

Mustering his willpower, he pushed the candy away

Putting him in touch with its shiny ebony brown exterior, but he got up and walked off

The fact that he licked his fingers as he left was totally not a cave

Snack Free (an acrostic poem)

Soooooo hungry

Nibbling on fresh air

And that was not satisfying

Craving sustenance

Knowing nothing was coming

 

Finding willpower

Reaching for a cup of tea

Everything will be okay

Even if his stomach disagreed

Convolution (a 100 word story)

“Microscopic processes determine macroscopic properties, yet the human ego assumes causal effect upon the world around it, bending it to its will through shear willpower and dominance of reality.”

“What did you say?”

“Humanity has a way of altering perception to meet the expectations and assumptions that coincides with the belief system of the observer.”

“Say what?”

“The observable is objective depending on perspective and the inherent life narrative of the person in question.  Thus multiple flawed testimonies are needed to correct for the systematic error.”

“Huh?”

“Humans will believe what they want to believe.”

“I don’t believe it.”

“Exactly!”
