bank

He only trusted what he could do, so he went by the river and dug a narrow, deep hole next to the old oak tree he used to swing from as a child. He pulled the stacks of cash from his shirt and stuffed them down into the dark soil.

graceful

Lilting beauty in the depth of night, curling outward toward the light, delicately touching the curve of moon, openly blooming; sunward swoon.

With lilting beauty she stretches limbs in the feathered medium of air, touching an invisible point with the finesse of a dove.

pine

The resin covered patches of his hands. He couldn’t wash it off, it being 19th century western America without modern soap. How did he get here?

The slender spindle rose toward the sky like his longing in the night. “This tree gets it,” he thought. “He knows what it is for his love to be unreachable.”

noise

They barked so loud that I could hardly concentrate, these men going back and forth about whose ideas were best. What a meeting. And one point I burst into a fit of laughter, but tried to play it off like a sneezing fit.

silence

Sweeping across the plains, the wind left a brush of stillness in its wake. There, like riding in the draft of a truck, I sought the perfect moment of peace.

involved

“Get into it!” Sweaty, dancing, shining, black; he screamed from the depth of his soul a plea for us to get control of ourselves.

thermometer

“Dial it up, son,” the ragged farmer said to the fresh-faced, overall-wearing child in boots. “But daddy, will it be okay?” The old farmer side-eyed the boy. “All we got is now.”

burning

An effigy piled high with crumbling pine, toppling under the pressure of intense heat.

She practically floated into the room. Like on a cloud. The crowd fanned out and faced her, each wearing a distinct look of awe. No one could deny it, she was

unhealthy

Wheezing, moldy, gainely, and stumbling, the old man with tattered clothes shuffled with bone-thin limbs toward the kitchen. He opened the fridge door: margarine.

By Grapthar’s hammer. It lay by Grapthar’s hammer. He couldn’t believe his eyes. The key to everything he had hoped for, everything he drea–

setup

Again? Again with this word? Who’s the lazy ad;lkasf;ajsf that doesn’t set this up on an automatic timer to change words each morning at, like, 6am EST (hint, hint). My life!

It had all been part of the plan. He didn’t realize it until it was too late – until he felt the steel in his back. Shit, he thought. Why did I let my greed get in the way of the obvious danger? Darkness followed.

darkness

Creeping into the room, clouding his view from the details of her face, after a few moments he was eclipsed in utter darkness. Was she still there? He could know, if only his arms still worked.

crook

His sneaky slither wound down the corridor until the window sill. He looked in. A pair of eyes stared back. A toddler. He couldn’t.

jealous

His nostrils flared; his heart raced; his teeth clenched; his hands imploded into powerful fists; his face flushed; anyone could see it. He was infatuated with her.

hiking

Climbing up the mountain, they came to an impasse; lurching over the trail was a stalwart rock. It jutted over the cliff confidently; and as such, deflated their confidence of progressing.

sleeves

He kept trying to get them to stretch to the ends of his arms; he would grasp the cuffs in each hand and furiously punch his arms toward the floor. We thought he was disturbed.

market

“The black one,” he said with a smirk. Joshie looked at the gun in all its raw, mechanized potential; he couldn’t believe that his life-long best friend would risk his future to acquire it.

“Our go-to-market strategy,” he rumbled. He stared the fresh-faced new recruit in the face, expecting a response. The recruit couldn’t begin to understand what the rumbling iron-sided executive wanted from him, so he sat stunned, attentive, but perplexed.

towers

I have vertigo, so whenever I look down I feel like I need to throw up. It’s embarrassing. Last time we were in New York at a party, there I was clutching a cocktail when I got a glimpse of how high we were on the roof. Barf city. All over the poor waiter’s hors d’oeuvre tray.

Rising above the mist, grey spikes speckled the landscape. He had returned home, and an accompanying sense of dread filled him. He couldn’t face them with pride; he had to accept their pity.

cult

Of personality, there can be said to be many fiercely dedicated tribes.

transform

Rawr, err, ahhrn, ohn, eehn! Right in front of him, a gigantic robot burst forth from the form of a semi-truck. “Optimus?!” the boy said. “Who?” the robot replied.

chaos

“Chaos, chaos,” he said, pondering the sound of the word. Instead of saying “Kay-oss” like any normal human being, he said “chowss.”

“I had a friend named Jim Shaos (Shaowss); so any time I see that word I say it like his name.”

tale

Telemetrically, telling tales true to turtle tail trends tries to tease terrors.

undone

Do you want to destroy my sweater? Pull this thread as I walk away. Watch me unravel, I’ll soon be naked. Lying on the floor, I’ve come undone.

He sang with compunction driving down the highway to his doom.

nourish

The leaves drew from the trees that strength and warmth necessary for growth; the tree, from the soil; the soil, from the river; the river, from the ocean; the ocean, from the glaciers. Who knows what nourishes them?
