A classroom of the future. The teacher is Fire Lizard.
Fire Lizard really is turning into a lizard.
The students are Dragon, Drinker, and Knot. Dragon and Drinker are boys. Knot is a girl.
This is a sequel to self’s “First Causes.”
Fire Lizard looking greener than usual today. He pays no mind about Big’s chair, sitting empty.
“Nature,” Fire Lizard begins, “will vindicate her laws.”
We nod. Our cornea slips engage.
This is a series of stories in which the protagonists mostly just sit in a classroom. Because this is a classroom of the future, there’s fancy stuff like cornea slips.
“First Life” was published in Juked.com, July 2015.
“First Causes” is forthcoming in Quarterly West.
For more of this dystopian universe, refer also to decomP, which in August this year published “Spores,” along with audio from Morgan Cooke, reading in full Dublin accent, lol!
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
