May is mental health [awareness] month. There are times I live in chaos, my mind unsettled and unsure. Like the flash fiction below, all is jangly and tumbled. Race thoughts race. Commonsensical nonsensical monosensical. Losing/lacking control over emotions and actions. Thus chaos is the theme for this jumble of prompts:
The chaos genie leaves her rubatosis box in my back garden. She laughs, knowing the sidereal crease in the cosmos such a placement creates. When the Milk Moon bleeds amethyst, wearing her most ephemeral of gowns, she descends for the duration of a day and night. She fills her yellow crystalline flask with children’s tears, madmen’s fury, bitterness, regret, sorrow. A world’s worth of disappointments, drawbacks, and failures. Brims it with vitriol and acid. Her smile is crooked and cryptic to all except me. I understand her actions. How her chaos and my order will collide. Where she will entice me, lead me. The chaos genie has but one wish; to anoint me daily from her flask. I tatter on the edges of the jagged black hole, held captive by kuebiko and neurasthenia.
