Premiere: Microwave – Pauline (Jitter Jazz Records)

 

Short Story

Clumsily brushing the picture frames hung up on the wall  you race down the stairs, over to turn off the microwave that you stupidly left on for much longer than it was needed. Swinging open the kitchen door, smoke frantically bellows out, encasing the whole kitchen in a hazy mess as a high pitch ringing softly deafens you.

Pacing through the smoke with your shirt covering your mouth, you pick up a photo of your late grandma, her cheerful smile glows through the now dense haze pouring out of your microwave in the corner of the room. After placing the photograph in the living room, you quickly make your way to the kitchen sink, filling up the closest deep object with water, extinguishing the small mess of a fireball. If only grandma was still around to cook, microwaveable meals would not make their way out of the freezer.
