AMNESIA – a story in 100 words


On a cold, metal table inside a cage of steel sat a wide-eyed monkey whose eyes shifted back and forth within their sockets. He began to suck his thumb and masturbate in nervous expectation of what could happen next. His eyes burned bright with rage as his mind replayed the stabbing pain, bitter tastes, and dizziness destroying all memory of his jungle home. A blinding light pierced the darkness. He screamed and bit into his tormentor’s flesh. A strange metallic taste flooded his gaping mouth – a taste somewhat familiar.


A tunnel of darkness, a light, the trees before him.
