The Best It's Gonna Get.I grunt as im forced into the bathrooms by the bustling crowds. I receive an elbow to the back, obviously by accident and I stagger into the stalls in a drunken manor.
This, is the perfect reason why I refuse to leave the house.
I fish my blackberry out of my pocket and dial in Katie's number.
"Are you still in HMV?" I ask, pushing myself out of the stall and turning to sit on the hand- basin.
"Yeah, Im outside now, actually. I got myself a new CD." She replies.
I nod, "Sweet, I'll meet you there in- 10 minutes?"
"Okay, hurry the fuck up, im hungry."
"Will do bro," I then slide my phone shut, shove it back into the safety of my pocket and head back out into the crowds.
Once I had finally made it to HMV in one piece, Katie decided to go to Gregg's and grab a sausage roll. We sat inside the building for a while, quickly disposing of 4 sausage rolls between us.
Upon finishing our snack, Katie came back with two cokes.
"I've never seen a town so busy," I snort, gulping down the substance.
Escape...The winds howled gently through the mysterious black chunks of Animus Island, the blue sea lapping at the pebbled beach. I shudder, rubbing my hands against by upper arms as I stared out into the white abyss of nothing.
"Something's bothering you, kid."
I turn my head slightly to the right, Subject 16 stood over me, "There's nothing bothering me."
The blonde stoops down, "You've been here long enough for me to figure out your ways. And, by the looks of things, it's driving you insane." he twirls a finger by the side of his head to show what he meant.
I sigh, burying my head into my knees, "I'm not insane. Im perfectly normal."
Turning to face the blonde, I shook my fringe to the side, "Besides, I don't like it here."
Subject 16 sighs, sitting down properly, "Kid, you can't go back. Your real body has probably been thrown into the street with the others. There's no way you can go back."
I start rocking, "I know that, Clay. It's just the fact that my friends, they haven't seen me fo
dead dog julyI.
the summer heat lays limp in the city’s lap,
breathing long oppressive breaths.
it does not even lift its lolling head
to bark out hoarse indignancy
when a strange man brings the mail.
there might be heavy rain today,
brought by some swollen, murmuring cloud.
the world will whirl and howl,
then settle down,
to die a little more.
o, quickly, love,
press your back against the wall in fear
as the universe spreads her arms and
shuts her eyes
and starts to summon the end of all things.
come with me
to the place of windows full of speechless afternoon
hot windy whispers of half-formed solutions and resolutions,
sweltering sunlit meadows we’ll wander and then forget.
o quickly, love,
let’s to the season of forgetting
and unwind all of our harshest memories
and fill the universe’s mouth
with mute cotton.
i’ll whisper these words to you some evening
with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
