Yin and Yang

by Christopher T. Dabrowski

Translated from Polish by Filip Kiełbowicz

"I want us to connect," a dark-skinned lover was whispering in her ear, "to become inseparable, like yin and yang."

"I want it too," she whispered, surrendering to his touch. They didn’t know they were not alone. In a hotel bedroom on a wardrobe there lurked an invisible gnome. He lapped lasciviously. He’d been waiting so long for something like this, for a wish that would be said by both of them.

"As you wish, it will happen," he mumbled, drawing a magic sign with a gnarled hand.

The lovers started to bend in strange angles. Screaming, crackling tendons, cracks of breaking bones. The plasticity of bodies. He intertwined them. Her head went through his stomach and his through hers. They were yin and yang now.
