Snippet II: PERFECTLY BRUISED

It’s Friday. I decided to take Barry out for a run, when I got back to my condo there was a package at my door. There was no return address and no label. I knew to be cautious, seeing how you can never be too careful these days. I let Barry sniff the box, he had no reaction he just licked his chops and sniffed the brown square. I knelt next the box and leaned in, and I didn’t hear any ticking or beeping. When I walked in I placed the small package on the kitchen counter. I unwound a bit and took a nice hot shower. I laid my well moisturized body on the couch, I’d forgotten all about that damned package until my eyes fell upon it and I noticed the box looked as if something had spilled on the inside.

I pulled a knife out of the drawer. I cut the package open slowly, when I removed the top there was a letter folded with faint stains all over it, the box was stuffed full of styrofoam peanuts. I’m no fool I would never stick my hand in something I couldn’t see through not knowing what was inside, so I turned the box upside down on the counter and stumbled to the floor I was horrified at what I saw. It rolled across my kitchen floor.

My eyes had to adjust, and make something out of the red blob that spun on the floor next to me I was looking at a heart, or at least that’s what it looked like. I knew that I was not imagining it. It didn’t look human, but I know a heart when I see one. There was blood everywhere. I began to look around, for what I wasn’t to sure. I got up, and ran to the phone. Who could have done this? Why?

I called Cory and told him to come over. I don’t remember what I said to him all I remember was him saying. “What the fuck? Are you okay?”

I hung up the phone and held the receiver to my chest, I held it to my heart and in that moment I remembered the note.

“This is sick,” I realized what the stains were on the letter and the box it was blood. The smell was of metallic rust; it smelled as if someone poured blood and salt into hot molten steel.

The letter reminded me of a ransom note, the letters were from clippings out of newspapers and magazines.

You KNOw tHaT I Am watching YOU

I HoPe you Enjoyed the PREsent tHat I Sent you

SOFIE, I want TO pLay WiTh You

I wont let TheM HuRT YOUr heart

I wAnT to SHAre My HeaRT With YoU

“What the fuck is going on, this shit is sick” I can’t even begin to imagine who would send something like this. To my knowledge I’ve never done anything to anyone that would cause such repercussions.

“This can’t be happening, not now.” I covered the red eyesore that lay before me with a dishtowel.

There was a knock at the door Barry immediately started to bark, and headed toward the thumping at the door. He knew I was upset and he didn’t like it.

“Who is it?” I didn’t look through the peephole, “who is it?”

“It’s me Cory.” He damn near gave me a heart attack.

“What took you so long you scared me to death?”

“I’m sorry.” So many things were running through my mind, I couldn’t think clearly, there was a haze of light, and then there was black.

Memories were acted out like old black and white silent films. I was four again and with family laughing and having the time of my life. I was thirteen and everyone had come to my house in Chicago for a Bar-B-Q, we all were eating and having a blast, V103 was playing Herb Kent was jamin’ the “hits and dusties” and everyone was dancing and loving that summer sun beating down on our sweaty skin and full bellies. I saw myself at college and I went back to when I was first really introduced to pot and I realized life would never be the same. The smell of my dorm room trailed off and the scent of death tickled my nostrils.

I blinked my eyes and there it was splattered on the floor, beating, and leaking its red juice, all on my kitchen floor. It grew bigger and louder I tried to run but it followed me. There was nowhere else to run.

I was trapped in the corner of my room and then it was over, quiet the heart was gone and the beating had stopped. I pulled myself up I was more bloody than Carrie after a night at the prom.

Just Words On A Page

There is something inside of me, a monster that wants to get out, that I have no doubt
That's the same look he gave me the same look that I don't need to see
Come to me, she beckoned me, she come called to me
A liars game she played a liars fear she prayed
Soothing soul played in the background, she is down to be
I just want to love you, love you, love you
That calculated play we play, the way we lay
I made something of me and now I m being pulled back into he
His ways his mind his time his dues, I cant not me this cant be
So simple to just leave so simple the hold he has on me


Mommy and Me Movie Review: Predators

I just want to start out by saying Adrien Brody's body was absolutely amazing in the movie.

As for the movie I was not impressed, Mom loved it she is a total predator junkie. I was disappointed in the story line, yes there was action and killing as expected. The story takes place on a jungle-like planet. It was typical how they tied this movie into the original with Arnold S. seems to me like they were running out of ideas. Maybe they should just stop making Predator let the alien men with locks in their hair rest.
I found myself falling a sleep, rather dozing off. I just felt like I lost interest in what was going on. It's a twisted story that seems to have a never ending cycle. go see it and you will know what I mean I am not trying to spoil the movie. Mom loved the action she loved how the predators and the humans kicked ass. The humans that were involved in this installment were predators of sorts themselves. I was confused with the doctors character as well as the prisoners character...they just did not belong but hey I guess they ran out of ideas.
I would say if you have seen the previous Predators you may want to go see this one. But don't say I didn't warn you. The story needed a bit more work. Lawrence Fishburn made an appearance, and as I said earlier Adrien Brody's body was God-like. Go see an early showing, that way you wont feel too bad about your $5.00 being wasted if ya don't like the film.
As always Mom and I went to the 400 on Sheridan Road, mom got the special any beer and a hot dog for $7.00 and I just had a Flat Tire (beer).
Happy Movie going....please feel free to go see a movie and do a guest review.
