Found at Tony’s
The goliath head walks sharp edges between
love and duty. The last innocent man confronts
killer angels with a “gift” from Washington, D.C.
At swim, two boys chat about how to get what
you want and want what you have. A scavenger
hunts Darwin’s children; a pale horse coming in
a blue angel night with a spycatcher mounted
tries to save grave Maurice, but a river runs
through it, breaking the covenant with the
Corsican. The White House connection gives rise
to the night of the moonbow, causing the
charioteer to commit the fourth deadly sin. Father:
unknown screams “don’t kill me,” catches the
bayou train on blind faith, knowing childhood’s
end awaits at the morning gate. A double coffin
opens to a Kentucky surprise, no place to come to,
as the murder in the house was the final target.
This reunion in death lasts a split second, as
an old school tie is not strong enough to battle
the footprints of God. Blood and rubles, the enemy
within, triple the agony from Alaska to the Caribbean,
now a cold paradise for Horowitz, the Chess teacher.
