HAT (a 55-word story)   To hide his baldness, Carl combed his hair across his head.  Friends held Carl down and shaved his head.  On his way to buy a hat, Carl met his niece and her classmates, who asked to stroke his head.  “Do you mind?” Asked their school teacher, raising her hand.  Carl never reached the hat shop.

WASH ME (a 55-word story)  He saw a girl in blue jeans washing her hands at a fountain. She walked away, turning and smiling before disappearing round a corner. On his car, he found this:   “Wash me.  And let people see me.  Wash me.  And make me shine.  Wash me.  And you’ll feel fine.  Wash me.  You know it’s time.”    Alberico Collina

THE CUSTOMER (a 55-word story)   The President impersonated a taxi driver to know what people thought about him.  Only one customer spoke highly of the President, praising his domestic policies.

ORLANDO (a 55-word story)   Young Orlando fished using dynamite.  The Coastguards would chase him.  But he’d see them coming.  He’d swim to shore and climb the cliffs barefoot.  The villagers would hide Orlando.  And the Coastguards would never find him.  But this time was different.  The Coastguards brought Leone, Orlando’s dog, with them.  And Orlando didn’t see that coming.    Alberico Collina

BETWEEN THE PAGES OF A BOOK (a 55-word story)   I lost my smile in a supermarket.  In the space of a few aisles, it had vanished.  A member of staff kindly offered to call it on the Public Address system.  But I couldn’t describe it.  Later on that evening, I found it patiently waiting for me at home.  Between the pages of a book.    Alberico Collina

HAM (a 55-word story)   They caught me in Cameroon.  They called me “65”.  Renamed me “Ham” when I came back from space.  I live in a Zoo now.  I tell the other chimpanzees that I orbited the earth inside a metal cage with a window.  They laugh.  They don’t believe me.  Some days, I struggle to believe it too.    Alberico Collina

GOLDIE (a 55-word story)   They left the door open while cleaning our cage.  And I flew to Regent’s park.  They’ve pursued me with cameras and nets.  Goldie, the golden eagle.  I could fly away forever.  But Regina is in our cage.  So I’ll let them catch me.  Take me back to London Zoo.  For freedom is wingless without Regina.    Alberico Collina

SHE’LL BE DEAD BY SUNRISE   Driving home from work, I spotted my sadness by the side of the road.  She looked stunning, and I gave her a lift.  In the car, I switched off the radio, and I let her talk.  She needed it.  When I parked, I walked round to her side.  She thought I'd help her out the car.  But I locked her inside instead.  She’ll be dead by sunrise.    Alberico Collina
