Moon beaten, a willow woman leaves her seclusion. Inside her blood beaten by despair induces a walk to the scaffold. Self aware of the will es surrounding her. They see her mimeomia as sweet as nectarines.

I poke at the fire. Deep red and orange embers spit flames skyward. As the flames grow thinner, the realization of more wood needs found.
“Damn it! I should have did this before it got dark.” I see my heat source dwindling before my eyes.
Dawn is several hours away. My camp hid well with a pine grove. I must venture forth to where the wild things roam. My way guided by the worst flashlight ever and the pale glow of Eris.
The Moon has long turned in for the night. The false silver light of Moon2 as it was called during its building. Mankind’s solution to energy build a second Moon. The crazy light show on its surface was beautiful until they told us it was pieces breaking off and streaming back to Earth.
My third spark has sailed overhead. They tell us it’s just normal. No one has ever been hit by one of these pieces.
“Who the hell would know I was hit it here?” I keep eyes open for anything out here. We used to worry about coyotes and bears.
This is the last crumb of avoiding civilization. The government will covert this to receiving station for that damn Eris. The greater good. So we at told.
I leave my little corner for an arm full of wood. Just enough to keep warm. Just enough to give me the peace of wilderness. The woods have been cleaned of anything bigger than a twig.
A light flashes in green behind me. A wave of heat. A sound like an exploding building. My legs feel the ground shudder.
My vantage point is sparse trees in an island against open darkness. I can see light from something below a ridge I was unaware of before. Mechanical sounds whirl. Static and broke words burst forth. None are clear. I search for a path to get me closer.
A lonely motor winds. I hear treads click and blacking. Voices rise but never clear the commotion.
I walk through scrub oaks. I snap an occasional branch. I was walking by rolling feet to not annouce my presence. A half mile hike takes less time when you stop breathing from fear of being heard.
“Billy! The cage. We need the cage out here now! They’re coming in from North in 130 seconds.” The deep voice crawls through the still night.
My eyes reach the edge. A pit that collapsed to reveal gated under ground. Two cages ten feet tall with twice the length and width gleem in low light. In one corner, a small grey man tends to something inside.
A green glow blinds me. Whispers of wind spill on to me.
“They’re real! Oh shit….They are real!” I try to stay quiet. The scaly hand on my shoulder tells me I wasn’t quiet enough.
“Billy! We got a peeper!” The thing attached yells out.
The small grey man looks up suddenly. He walks over to see my body hanging in the air. His tall friend keeping me off the ground by hanging me like a towel.
“Put him on with the others. We need to get these humans off our planet. I told you they hid like rats. They know it’s illegal but they still come out here.”
I bask in her warmth. My mind holds those moments that are special because they are our moments. There is a certain calmness that stills my heart.
The night drifts by. Time is a ceiling fan counting by whoosh sounds. Light stays at bay.
My dreams morph. Subtly I’m drawn away. Her face warn and kind grows. Her smile looks more relaxed. I twist to better see whay keeps me whole.
The warmth returns. Strange white shiny walls curve up from below. I feel like am burning. Parts of me break free and float off. Her smile twists more profound.
Being someone cup of tea is not always good
I look into dark chocolate eyes. The ones that are like soft blankets. They hold my every move.
“Don’t believe me if I tell you. Not a word of this is true. Don’t believe me if I tell you, that in love with you.” My voice sings a song but sure doesn’t know it. Her smile doesn’t care.
“Hey, guess who got back today?”
The voice rattles me. I recognize barely. My vision of Molly fade to black. I’m in a lunch place. Dylan repeats this again.
“She swore that she love me. She swore she would never leave me. But tge devil take that woman for you know she tricked me easy” I reply like I didn’t phase out for a minute. I reach for my double onthe rocks. Thanking someone for whiskey in the jar.
“She comes and goes. And you know it all too well. But when all is said and done. The Sun goes down.” He raises his beer to me.
Italized words are lyrics from Thin Lizzy songs In Order of Appearance “Dont Believe a Word”, “The Boys are Back in Town”, “Whiskey in the Jar”, “The Sun goes down”. I choose the group with the most modern rewrite as the inspiration
“I love her. She is Magic. She turns white things different colors. She’s warm and had the sweetest little red eyes.” Melvin looks at his love interest across the room.
The Melvo-500 was placed here for a reason. His programming told him so. The room of sheltered pieces and older machines was his room. Always was. Then people started visiting half hour each day. Like clockwork, they come and go. Never talking to him.
One day, they brought in things. And new machines. The first ones were boxy and noisy. Always cried for attentiom. Then her petite form showed up. Shiny and sleek. They called her toaster.
