bicycle

I had an old rusty bicycle once. I don’t remember much about it except that it was baby blue – the parts that weren’t rusty orange, and it had a banana seat. Not quite the look I wanted as a 12 year old boy.

elegance

She had a false elegance, the kind that betrayed itself with knockoff pearls and ill-fitting shoes.

stitches

He could feel stitches. Stitches everywhere. His side, arms, legs, and even his face. They pull and tear at his skin, making it tight and uncomfortable.

flattened

I flattened my body as much as I could. Not easy. Once I felt it was as good as it would get, I inched my way forward until the tips of my fingers could feel the edge of the building.

underdog

A lot of folks say they like to be the underdog. These people are losers. They can’t handle the pressure of being a winner and living up to expectations. Losers.

footsteps

I didn’t hear footsteps. Everyone thinks they hear footsteps in the dark of the night, but I know I didn’t. No, I hear a shotgun click.

failing

I was always pretty damn good at taking tests. Quick mind and a somewhat photographic memory – a 3 megapixel memory is how I think of it – have let me be cavalier with test prep. But this time I failed. Not just failed, but spectacularly failed. Spectacular as in people in 20 years would bow their heads in reverence when talking about my efforts. And, yes, I did put out effort. Turning in a blank test or filling it in with funny quips isn’t really failing, is it?

Nope, I tried. And tried. And now here I am.

I amaze myself at my inability to fail. Perhaps that is my true failing in life. Failing to fail is my curse – perhaps my blessing – but certainly the one thing I have failed to master.
