Giant Pool Table, by Denny E. Marshall
First published in “Pablo Lennis” Nov. 2014.
It is the largest pool table in the universe. The location is the Shiyo galaxy.
The Azmars play whenever they get the chance, since it is only open six times a year.
Players do not use pool sticks. They use pool launchers to strike the ball into other balls.
Some Azmars think the game is harmful and does not advance society while others think it is harmless fun. Life forms on many planet hate the game, although are unaware the cause of their problems is a pool game. You see the pool balls are other planets in the Shiyo galaxy.
Denny E. Marshall has had art, poetry and fiction published, some recently. See more at www.dennymarshall.com
