Twisters 4 (maybe)

The latest segment of this week’s Twisters (Twitter-length fiction.) If you’re not on Twitter, why not? If you are on Twitter, but don’t write Twisters for #artwiculate, #aLtwiculate, #lqw, #liblit or #15tt, why not? These #s are different word-of-the-day prompt feeds, with a huge following of contributors. Get on that!

Cure

From New Age shamans he sought a cure.

As his health recovered, he shouted “miracle,” thanking God.

The doctors felt cheated.

Yagi

The poseur posed – “He bends!” they whispered, awestruck.

That he called himself a yagi rather than a yogi should have tipped them off.

#lqw

Fascia

His fasces struck the fascia of my arm, “You shall not touch the Consul!” he shouted.

“For Rome,” I replied, “Die you fascist!”

Soutache

The soutache of my cloak was torn, unravelled on the briar’s needle.

My mother cursed, her tongue as sharp as her touch, furious.

#aLtwiculate

Smarmy

He looked at me, smiling into my eyes with those tombstone teeth

– he was right, and he knew it, the smarmy bastard.

#artwiculate

Cicatrices, Aplomb

She bore her cicatrices with pride, carrying the battles of her past with pride

– disguising her mental scars with aplomb.
