April 15 : What the Men Talk About When the Women Leave the Room by Dionisio D. Martinez

The room itself. The women. The absence of women

in the room. What the absence of women does

to a room. The sound of all thsoe women getting

up and leaving; all of them at once, like wild

birds or hunger. How the world can be conquered

if only... Just don't tell the women.

What the absence of women will do to men

eventually. Fears. Men talk about fears, bad

dreams, women leaving, the room swelling with

the absence of women. Bad dreams have a way

of walking in the room when the women leave.

Each dream is an afterimage of a woman leaving.
