The Issue of the Day

It has been discovered that what’s known of the fifth fundamental force
is the trace of the thing itself. The target has the intrinsic ability
to evolve away from its common design into something
that cannot be judged, measured, or predicted.
It’s as if it has anticipated the immediate
and acted prior to arrival. The smallest shift, moving
in simultaneous alignment with its own phantom.

Researchers have tried to evaluate its purpose for years
but remain vague, and every time they’re on the news
they look younger.





Caroline Hardaker‘s non-fiction work has been published worldwide, and her poetry has been featured or is forthcoming by The Stinging Fly, The Emma Press, Neon Magazine, and Shoreline of Infinity. Caroline is also the in-house blogger for Mud Press.
