She felt a magnetic pull. And a throbbing

Instead he kissed her. There was no fireworks. But bombs going off. Big explosions in the distant and a faint, but unmistakable smell of dynamite. Imagined body parts getting torn into fragments.

She couldn't help but hold onto him. That close it was easy to forget cousins and uncles and the dull homework involving numbers that refused to do what they were supposed to do.

He said; let's go somewhere.

She felt a magnetic pull. And a throbbing.

He led her into the woods. It was getting dark fast. The sound of the people laughing and screaming on the rides was starting to fade out.

They walked until almost all the light was gone. His hand was like a mold on hers. But she did start wondering where they were going.

Almost, he said and turned around, but the shadows were so dark she couldn't see his face.


I brought my friend Signe to a party at Avy's house. It was fun until it wasn't.

  11. You are all too kind.

    And Ella, catch me next time at the Red Lion. It would have been a trip to meet you IRL. Don't wear the crocs too often. Look for Converse sneakers instead.

  13. Hey. I hope you don't mind me commenting out of the blue, but I found your blog via Dennis Cooper's. Just thought I'd drop a note saying that I've really been enjoying some of the writing on here. Looking forward to reading more. Take care. Thomas


You Rock. I am certain of it.
