Speculative Fiction

He wonders how
his life would have changed
if he had slept
with that woman
who excused herself
to use the restroom,
her eyes so full
with hope and anticipation,
but when she returned,
choked with disappointment
because he had shifted
ever so slightly

Daryl Muranaka lives in Boston with his family. In his spare time, he enjoys aikido and taijiquan and exploring his children’s dual heritages. His first book, Hanami, was released by Aldrich Press in April 2015.
