About Red Tales

Here's an evolving electronic collection of short prose pieces, with a poem contributed occasionally. Brevity guides. Although sometimes a piece will run to 900 words, most pieces are much shorter. Here one may find erotica, flash fiction, brief observations, and modest improvisations. Another rule is that each piece must have something to do with"red"; at least the word has to appear in each piece functionally. . . . All pieces are numbered and titled, so there's a de facto table of contents running down the rail below, under "Labels" (scroll down a bit). Browse for titles that look interesting, if you like. Thank you for stopping by. Look for some red today, tonight.

276. Quantum Colors

One door is white. One door is red. The white door is enthralled with light. The red door is in love with itself. One shoe is green. One shoe is pink. They don't match. Yet's obvious they belong together. Today my shirt is black. Tomorrow's shirt is like Schrödinger's cat. It doesn't yet exist. And it does.
