Surreal Love, by Mark Tulin

Mary and Ellen were in a romantic fantasy, a profound love that they’ve never experienced before. It made them feel weightless and indestructible, to soar above buildings, all the way into the upper hemisphere. Their love was more than being in a parallel universe; it was several universes combined. A journey of Kerouacian freedom and transcendence, creating their unique laws of nature and motion. It was as though they were two brides in a Marc Chagall painting, surrounded by a collection of Jungian symbolism, hoping their love would become immortal, even after the effects of the magic mushrooms wore off.

First published in Friday Flash Fiction.

Author, poet, short story writer from Santa Barbara, California. I write about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching present in California. These are narratives that may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.
