there is a slaughterhouse
where the hungry men reincarnate
as bulls. a cleaver spattered in red
teases: chase me, chase me now,
caresses a thigh, then thrusts
its tongue like a knife.
he hangs in wet pieces.
the street salivates with rain,
swallows the leaves
that once lined the way.
a boy eyes his flank,
an old man trades silver
for his feet, a girl enters
and passes him by.
if he had lips
or life, he would beg,
daughter, it is i!
but she chews the fat
with the cashier: a new child,
weather, supper plans after
mass for her widowed mother.
she wraps him in the morning
paper, tucks him in her bag.
the butcher tears his apron
as the clouds gnash above.
she rubs salt against his flesh,
kneads wine into his back, stiff
and splayed on a wooden rack.
slipped into warm jaws,
he finally softens:
contented to be
the last meal.
tomorrow, a lamb will be born

I'm Baggie. I used to live by the dumpster behind that Fancy Italian Restaurant off the corner of Broadmore 'n' 33rd street. The kids called me Baggie 'cause I carried a worn out plastic bag with me ev'rywhere I went. Inside were trinkets I've had with me since I can remember.
There was a tarnished, golden ring inside, flat as the cracked sidewalk I lived on. I think I stepped on it once, but I still carried it in my bag. I think it belonged to my dad, if I had a dad. At least, I'd like to think it came from my dad, 'cause I don't remember.
There was also this red book with pages torn up 'n' stained so bad you couldn't tell what was on 'em. There's a faded picture of a white rabbit wearin' cloths on the cover of it. I can't read, but I still carried it in my bag. I liked to look at the pictures inside sometimes at night before I went to bed. I dunno why, but I always felt pretty darn happy after seein' some of the pictures of thos

Main Turret Artillery
Tachyon Artillery: Tachyons are slowed down below light speed by a gravitation trap with rotating polarization (changing direction), that is the reason why the tachyon gun is U- shaped, and fires two pulses per shot. The tachyons want to get back over light speed, and accelerate after leaving the gun, when they hit matter they lose their strange energy and transform the matter into antimatter, and break through the lightbarrier. The destructive effect is because of this caused by the antimatter, so the usage of tachyon guns in atmosphere is limited to zero, also in space the range is limited due to the exhaust of ships engines and interstellar gas, this causes the red color of the pulses.
Effective range: mostly used in mid distance combat (100 000km), maximal effective shot was one Ls (lightsecond = 300 000km), but had limited effectivity, due to the high loss of tachyons
muzzlespeed = 0.5 c up to0.75 c

"Kami!" she squeeled. "I made you a birthday cake, with Capu's help, of course. This one didn't become part of the bowl, this time!" she said proudly and held up a carrot cake, sloppily iced and a bit crooked.
Kami stared at the cake, then twitched his lips in disgust. "Don't want it."
Oh, don't be like that, have a tast-" Demi started, untill she tripped and the cake flew into the air, landing on Kami's head.

Three long weeks of learning each other's alphabet and sentence structure were starting to pay off. The walls were covered in various colors of paint with their exchange, half of it was Siyuu's 'small' and simple strokes to display what turned out to be a massive alphabet of some seventy or more characters. They seemed to be comparable to English print, but far more specific in their phonetic representation.
One of the first things he learned was that her name wasn't pronounced 'Sah-yoo' but more like 'Sye-yoo'. Derrik had a hard time keeping track of most of the Alarian letters, so he made a piece of paper that he used to compare them to English sounds. Likewise, Siyuu seemed to have a problem figur

Vale is the daughter of a trader family. She grew up very well with her family and had a good and sheltered life. She had always a special attribute; Vale is able to move completely noiseless. Every step she took didnt make any noise and she made a lot of funny things with this ability. But with this specialness other people noticed here and so also the mercenaries from the Reptiles Eye under the leadership of Commander Warlaron. He took Vale to his side and gave her family only one choice; to cooperate or to die together with her daughter. From this time on Vale was a member of the Reptiles Eye and only the notion that she would meet her family again someday gave her enough power to keep on her living will. What Vale never knew is the fact that Warlaron killed her family three years later as

After counting the grains of sand on the ground three times, memorizing the exact texture of the entire wall of rock encircling her area and mastering every technique her species could perform without another being, she was just about bored enough to dig to Felarya's core and destroy whatever was making everyone immortal.
Even she was boring now. Sure, she could split into multiple bodies, but that didn't make her less alone, just able to form a pyramid and various othe geometric shapes.
Nobody knew or cared about the cave behind her. Déméchrelle hadn't been heard from in practically forever, she had been here so long she had forgotten her own name, and worst of all, she couldn't do anything more than wander about half of the cave's first floor thanks to being tethered in

It was a day as normal as a day could be in Felarya and maybe that was the reason why Anna, a big naga living near the giant tree, decided to try her luck with some older experiments. Weeks ago she had found some old wrecks of human machines, old vehicles and also some old planes.
For a normal naga this stuff wouldnt be more interesting than a tree in the jungle, but Anna was different, maybe because of her past, because she was once a human before some happenings transformed her into well into this. She went up early in the morning, she was pretty sure that Crisis was still sleeping so she had enough time to took her tools and then leaving this place without any disturbing question.

You play too much Ace Combat when:

-When a friend of yours convinces you to do something, you reply "Let's do this Garuda 1!".
-You pick a favourite country of AC world according to your own nationality; USA=Osea, Germany=Belka, Russia=Yuktobania, etc.
-You don't find an AC nation comparable to your country, you create your own new country in AC world and you make a whole new Ace Combat version.

After a long few working years, Jerry finally went on a vaccation. He worked almost all the time at a lumber facility, essentially a lumber jack himself. Tired and so very relieved to be out of the woods, Jerry was headed for the mountains for a long week stay. It was short, but he didn't want to stay gone for to long, he got some extra benefits for not being out of the office for every so long. So at that a week was all he was willing to sacrifice. Simplistic, and kinda husky, Jerry was a 31 year old guy, with brown eyes, and hair, the light brown, not the dark kind. Moving right along Jerry had driven about 4 hours to get out here, and wasn't concerned with how bad his cabin would be, he was just thankful he got some time, to at least kick back for a while. With all the supplies he brought, he probably could have stayed four times as long. Pulling into the branchy drive way, twig

If one were to look to the treetops for the source of the sound, it would be found in the form of a massive dridder excitedly leaping from branch to branch on the enormous Felaryan trees, attempting a flip or twist wherever possible.
"Spins a web, any size, catches theives, just like flies," the creature continued, "hey there! There goes the Spider-Man!"
Her final note was accompanied by a surprisingly agile flip down to ground which left eight peg-shaped holes where her legs pierced the soil. This was the only thing that bothered her. The routine was supposed to be graceful, and she weighed several tonnes!
Ceri sighed. She had been obsessed with Spider-Man ever since reading her first comic. Ever since then, humans were stalked, carefully spied on, and even chased down if she suspected they could teach her anything else about him.
