    I heard and saw the hooded figures standing on each side of the Sybil. Who they were or what they were was not apparent, only that they guarded the mouth, the oracle, the mouthpiece of beyond. Then I began to quiver….

    I saw the cars rip around the bend in front of me.. I pushed in clutch and tapped the hand break as I drifted around the corner. The asphalt roared, and as the clutch shifted back in I floored the accelerator, diving down the straight-away….

    He with concern saw the fast movement as the car in front of him drifted lanes, the back bumper of the car, knocked the front wheel of the motor cycle in a flash. He felt it move than…

    I saw the faint shroud blocking my sight and struggled to strain my eyes, to peer forward; Off in the horizon I saw her.

    Her faint billowing features, her lithe Grey form rising in twirling maw, the lady….

    I see the light piercing the shuttered window all around . As I scried the room an old traditional office like of those from a noir movie, I waited for another, in the lobby, in the dull haze.

    I saw the light creep over the horizon, I didn’t want to rise.

    I saw the amber tip of dawn rising out my window in bed, it was already too late. I would rise, I would face the day, the course was already set.

    I rose.

    He felt the cracking in his ribs as the beast bit, the primordial demon, some monster from beyond, its yellow gleaming teeth tearing out. He screamed as he felt his entrails spilt as the creature began to feed,

    The man looked around the park and glanced the pond, the mother duck led her ducklings under some brush next to the shore as the rain started to fall. It reminded him how he was alone in his own storms.

    I looked around the broken, wind slept landscape and at the mesas flanking my sides, I saw the soul of the west.

    behind me my partner, my associate a cowboy out of time, rode on a painted horse, enjoying the scenery under the bleaching Colorado sun.

  • ben commented on the post, certain 8 years, 10 months ago

    I saw the equation and knew from the model, the half-life. I knew the correlations and I knew the odds so I knew it would happen with almost certainty. But certainty and it happening are different.

    Assuming it will happen and it happening even 9999/10000 are not certain.

    I saw the woman looking down into the book, her hair draped over her face hiding any expression. I realized she was like like me, a dreamer, a seeker , a reader. I glanced to see the book she read but could not see the title. Some novel I guessed based on the style.

    I saw the assorted figures and equations in the damn table, exact absolute infinite approximations, nuances of reality.

    Breaking the world down by infinity and zero, as Laplace and Fourier had done….

    I heard the steps behind me and I kept going, I looked in the reflection of the windows on the side of the street beside me. There was no one, but the steps continued.

    I turned around and the footsteps ended.

    As I saw the spent shell casing on the ground, I knew it had been a set up, they were too ready, too prepared, we were being used.

    That made the loss of a friend that much worse… we were simple props….

  • ben commented on the post, patience 8 years, 11 months ago

    I felt my body wear thin, the jittery buzz of the caffeine and sleep deprivation, I don’t need to put up with this crap.

    My patience wore thin just like the thin ice under our feet.

  • ben commented on the post, schedule 8 years, 11 months ago

    I saw the time fly, but it had no meaning… I have no schedule to my pacing or this madness.

    I am my own man, I answer to no one and so I set my own pace mostly and let the hours and days fall as they will.

    I here the saxaphone blaring, and I here the pianist chiming in… this is the life.

    I see the dim light from the crystalline chandeliers and I know this the place.

    What will I tell the young ones, the ones to follow of this place?

  • ben commented on the post, motel 9 years ago

    I saw the pair of automobiles pull up, I knew this was the place, the seedy under belly of America. Yet I stayed and watched, my cigarette smoke souring the air in my car as I watched the scene unfold .

  • ben commented on the post, chuckles 9 years ago

    I heard the subtle laughter behind me, chuckles, and I knew I was in a bind.

    I didn’t hesitate, I reached into my coat pocket to grab cigarette from the case and also reached something for something else which was not a lighter at all from the holster ….

  • ben commented on the post, den 9 years ago

    I see the smoke coming off my torch, this place has the feel of death and rot, like slimy things in the dark.

    Welcome to the den of evil. I ready my revolver and I know things skitter and lurk in the darkness.
