Beautiful Bird.
"That will be another fifty."
He spoke with the cunning excellence of kings. His mouth parted delicately like falling waves cast against a sandy shore. His skin, touched delicately by over-the-counter rogue, shone brilliantly white even in the dull shadows of a back alley. He was tall, beautiful, and handsome— with short cropped strawberry blond hair that almost fell into his eyes and azure green eyes. Those eyes of which were fixated on a nervous man pulling nervously at the collar of his expensive suit. He practically screamed hate me, I'm a politician!
"That's fine," the man breathed, taking out his sleek leather wallet and extending a friendly Ulysses S. Grant over to the man. "But I'm only doing this thing this one time, you understand?"
The boy burst out into tinkly laugher. His chest rose and fell with his delight. "No you won't," he spoke, taking the fifty. "I've slept with every closeted gay man in this city and I know—" he paused, flashing the politician a br

He had always planned for the worst. When the local news on his grainy television warned him of oncoming storms, he sat there on the ledge of his floral couch with a shabby, homemade emergency kit perched in between his chicken legs. He was devoted to the security of his life, and nothing else above that.
When the bomb hit, however, every scrap of false security he clung to shattered like the pristine glass of his window pane.
That Wednesday began like every Wednesday before that. He awoke to the pounding noise of his alarm in his eardrums. (He had lost a large portion of his hearing in his angst-filled teenage years, drowning his sorrow in noxious melodies.) He cursed beneath his breath. Sunlight seeped through his white cotton drapes, enveloping his bedroom in the soft golden aura of the morning. The wallpaper on his walls—a tacky yellow with even tackier perfectly aligned thin lines of white trailing down to the floor—absorbed the light, radiating sharp, bright light. The

September falls outside his window and the two-story house feels June. Time tilts here, the days canted to the left like the apple tree their grandchildren planted sometime last winter. It hasn't grown much since then, a few leaves on dry branches but no blooming flowers when spring arrived.
Today his fifty years seem like thirty. Sitting up in bed is easier. He doesn't feel as weak as before. The Pacific breeze touches his hair, chills his pale face and he thinks, Maybe Anna and I could drive down to the beachfront today.
He rolls to his side. She's burrowed under the covers, a blue blanketed lump, white hair poking out over dark blue pillows.
John reaches his hand out and presses down.
The lump rolls over. The lump doesn't breathe.
The lump deflates like a balloon.
The lump is blankets and no flesh.
"Mmm, good morning," Anna murmurs in his ear.
Cold lips kiss his cold cheek. John frowns.
There's nothing there--
Anna squeezes his hand, drags him out of bed. "Breakfast?"

I'm a lot of things some times, and not much of anything others. I feel like I'm always changing, but relatively staying the same. That is my world. I feel a lot more than I should at any given time. Sometimes I make myself sick thinking about things. My stomach frequently hurts from anxiety over the silliest of things. I feel trapped by events and situations that I can't fix or understand, and I am too deep of a thinker.

I like to think, despite all of that. That I am pretty fun to be around. I'm very random. I like art. I like music.

The end.

Current Residence: The recesses of my mind.
deviantWEAR sizing preference: M?
Favourite genre of music: Alt-Rock, Metal. My music taste is very eclectic. I like a good beat. Electronic music is wonderful.
Favourite photographer: All photographers. Pictures are wonderful. :)
Favourite style of art: I'm a big fan of vivid color. Interesting techniques. Avant-garde, nonconvential art.
Operating System: Mas OSx
MP3 player of choice: iPod Touch
Shell of choice: The shell I'm in now.
Wallpaper of choice: Right now it's a photograph taken by Jonny Greenwood. He's quite a good photographer. :))

Personal Quote: We can call it the "Two Whore Corner Store!" See? I am witty!
