Post-Pandemonium (flash fiction)


Unfixed handbills ghosting through the depopulated streets.  In the air, the mixed scent of cotton candy and vomitus.  On the dead-grassed commons, a long, lone strip of sawdust, blood-speckled.

A formerly-green town left brown and forlorn.  And no sign of the party responsible, save for the line of ashen puffs rising above the leafless treetops of the outlying woods--and the unlikely sound of calliope music dopplering off into the October night.

Something wicked that way goes.
