I was reading a lesser know Phillip K. Dick novel called “Maze of Death” and was inspired to write this. Not by the novel itself but by the table on contents where every chapter has a brief description of what to expect. The descriptions had nothing at all to do with the novel and I thought that was great.
Glow-Bee and Me
Our implants told me and Glow-Bee that we won a rabbit in a raffle. She didn’t know what a rabbit was, and I’d never heard of a raffle before. When you’re pan-dimensional like us, sometimes it’s hard. Or that’s what we think we are anyway. Glow-Bee just says “Same shit, different day”, but I don’t agree with her about that. I call her “her’ because sometimes she appears as a very tall older woman. Mostly she looks like a big glowing iridescent bee. Twice now that I can remember she was an entire K-pop band from a hundred years ago. Mostly I’m people. I’m like a slide show and I’ll look the same for maybe a couple of days or only a few minutes. Always, always I have a beard.
Usually some fat guy with a bushy face, occasionally a bearded lady. Glow-Bee says sometimes when I’m sleeping I look like a squid with a beard (I have no idea what she means by that). Anyway now we have to find a common plane where we both have
physical bodies and go see about that rabbit. Glow-Bee is after me about something called a “ticket”, what ever that is.
