Amoebae's Trip
(2002)

 

...Two amoebae clash in an age-old tale of conquest
EXCERPT:
Somewhere in the swirling chaos of the universe a protean encounter with Promethean consequences ensues. On the pinprick, within a common galaxy's many solar systems, is a planet; and embedded in the earth and water of this planet, a unique piece of grime; and in the space of several thousand microns delimited by this speck of grime, a staging area for an age-old tale of conquest the inevitable clash of culture between two protozoan protagonists that have touched each other in the murky mud. Each protozoan amoeba, to be specific left to its habit, assumed complete control and consumption of its pinhead crumb of existence.
