A Moment of Irony

Jeremy let a harsh breath from his nose, amused at the irony. What a goddamn tool this Freddy is, he thought. Mister big-shot tough-guy wise-ass. Mister slick. Let him go on about it, take his time; tell them all how many he's killed and how many years he wormed out of with his big-shot tough-guy wise-ass lawyer, slick to the heels in Louisiana gator skin. Let him try to tell it through a throat-hole Jeremy's grandaddy's revolver would give him in just a few minutes now.

Summer of Love

Afternoon is a time when the axes cut in shadows, pendulum, slow, the sun's gaudy execution of smoldered cement. What they call the sweet release of death is, as the roads might tell you, as cool as a lemonade's summer sweat, but swift, also. So swift, in a moment the cracked and boiling roads forget to die and burn alive. But for this we forgive them, because we love to be going, and it is our shadows which kill.
