The candle’s fire spills into the darkness. Ornaments hang, glistering mimicking the snowfall outside. The family submits to stress and exhaustion of gift gathering. The air filled with scents of clove and orange biting back at the starts of cold. The morning will open a new world briefly.

“Meaning? How do fishnets imply saudade?” She asks with a lenient but fast smile.

“Uh, the site of an extravagant tulip,such as yourself…” my brain malfunctions briefly “Make that coruscant, almost blinding figure. Gentle as ether, and quite intoxicating as well.”

She looks straight through me.

I’m thinking it didn’t sound as good as I thought it did.

“What can you tell me of this…… incident? It seems as if you were hell bent on decapitating someone.” Randy uses his newly found demagogue voice, fitting of the effect of his team leader position.

“Dude, we were flinging the kick balls in that external mesh cage. A few bounced out.” I try lending reason to the conversation.

“Forgettery? Do you not know safety rules at Wally World?” Randy stands with both hands firmly planted on his hips. “It’s not June! It’s the Christmas rush…people are everywhere.”

I ponder my need for seasonal employment.

Randy turns away.

I can’t resist picking up one of the offending kickballs. I throw it and watch smiling as it pops him on the back of the head.

My warren of logic collapses. An uncanny tendency that catches me in a tough spot stranded. The deal of syncretism was to reform the need to use my vertebra.

I look away to avoid my oscitant face giving up worry.

11. whisper
12. bounty

Reason lays like a glistening bounty. She wraps herself in suede gloves and an obscure veil of espionage. She leaves the rest of us like empty calyx after the flowers receive box-cutter shave.

We were guilty of whispers of lurid and solicited truths. She, the dilettante that is she, hides her empty thoughts on a drop box painted in abstracts.

The act of self-possessed mind playing chaste or just animated figure exhausting possibilities.

The spare key to my mind clicked at the wrong time. I was trapped with lock jaw uttering my mellisonant swan song to an ambiguous costumed witch. My canter was an electric shock posturing me as a laconic dope. Her turning away left me looking in need of adjuration.

First Line Friday – Better After Sunset

In that moment, when flames licked the horizon and the sky burned with an orange glow, Taylor knew everything was going to be alright. An orange light washes over him. It feeld like a receding tide of stress relieving so many fears. The exhaling wind across the desert brings a taste of night’s chill. Taylor watches the blue fade to purple and then black. The truck’s headlights watches over the dry creek bed. The vast blanket of desolation buries any signs of life. His eyes search the horizons for traces. Satisfied there is nothing, he drives the truck down into the sand. The truck groans and lurches downward. Tires find rocks only to kick them up. A cloud forms illuminated by pale moonlight. It dances within a fading breeze. Taylor halts the truck where the creek once formed braids. It seems fitting to use the dead creek. His cargo needs not be found. Nor identified. He loosens the back of the trap to reveal a shovel. The sand gives easy. The headlights produce long growing shadows. The Earth opens wide to accept its prize. In the distance, calls of the night begin. The return of noise is partially unnerving. Distance is enough to restore the peaceful feeling. The moonlight plays with the senses. He back fills the hole quickly. His eyes scrub the shadows for movement. In a place with little respect to time, he begins to question if he overextended his stay. Quick feet find the path to his truck. An easy feeling resumes once he is inside. A deep breath and quick check of the mirrors calms down the pulse. Taylor starts up the truck. He drives across the disturbed sand a few times back and forth to smooth out the scene. Its perfectly staged now. Time to leave the place for civilization. Down a loose sand road another truck comes as he goes. Everything will definitely be alright in a few more miles.

“The rule of thumb is no martini order skull be more difficult than calculus.” I explain to the bar maid.

Her glowing smile is a puzzle. Savory lips part as I spy the constellations in her eyes.

“How about our legendary martini?” she starts to move as if my choice had been made.

My eyes follow the dress made to look of woodcuts with irregular borders. I really don’t notice this color.

Her head turns back to catch my gaze.

Not weather vane needed to see a cold front moving toward me.

“It will be perfect!” She exclaims “Out here… We can be free. A green house with every environmental feature.”

“Imagine all laminate floors and steel beams to save the trees…. After they take out those on the middle where the house will go.” He smiles. “The dream house.. Once they tear out that horrific brown stuff growing where the sod should be.”

“Our own 3200 square foot 3 bedroom, 3 and half bath place for us two!” she looks at the full-size SUV. “And the dogs.”

“It’ll look so much better when they build the other 35 homes here. Nice manicured yards. This country life is really what we looked forward to.” he smiles back at her.

“Ouch!” she swats at a mosquito “We’ll need an exterminator! And a lawn care guy. But they have to be green.”
