Parataxis (First Exercise of the 4 AM Breakthrough)

Parataxis   You can’t.   Mom.   Really.   He’ll do it again.   He’s a bastard. A real A-Hole!   Seriously.   Mom.   What are you thinking?   Re-Marriage? Next Saturday? That’s ridiculous.   Don’t you listen?   Didn’t you see the porn in his closet? Buried in the back of his desk? In the garage?   In MY closet? And Lisa’s?   He’s scum, Mom. Scum.   You’re not listening.   Well, I didn’t think I’d have to go there. But now I do.   Follow me. Look here. Look in this box. Wait for me to unlock it.   You see those? Those are Ben Wa Balls. Not marbles, Mom. You don’t know what those are? Of course not.   Another reason NOT TO MARRY HIM. Again. Christ.   You stick them in your Vagina. Yes. Supposed to strengthen it. Make sex better.   Probably just for the guy.   You know who gave those to me?   Dad. Yes, Dad.   I don’t know why!   No, I haven’t used them.   The point is he gave them to me. Lisa got a pair, too. Ask her.   But you have to believe me. I wouldn’t lie to you. You don’t want a man like that.   I don’t care about your religion. I don’t care about the cost of an annulment. I don’t care that you don’t want to be alone.   He’s going to give you a disease. He’s unfaithful.   I’m sorry that it’s hard to believe.   Oh yes, it happened. Look at these. Yes, he gave me those, too. They look like gay magazines. Girls don’t really want to look at pictures of muscle-bound men masturbating with each other, do they? I think girls would rather look at Playboy.   And look at these. Yes, they are graphic sex...

The MUSE Project

In keeping with their namesake, I am using the band MUSE as my muse to write a chapbook of stories. I have already completed one story. My idea is to write stories inspired by some of their songs. MUSE happens to be my favorite band. They have managed to combine enough grit with classical elements to get my creativity going. They also remind me a little bit of QUEEN, my favorite band of yore… If you haven’t already, please check them out. They rock, and I feel they are under-appreciated in the US. If you register on their website, you can play all their songs and see all their videos for free....
