i sit in the moonlight playing my guitar. "bury all your secrets in my skin; come away with innocence & leave me with my sins; the air around me still feels like a cage; & love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again..." after i finish the song, i walk along the empty street. as i pass an alley i hear a man say 'scream, bitch, scream.' i then hear a woman whimper in fear. i tell myself to stay out of it. it's not my fight. the little bit of decency left in me can't walk away, though, & i sneak behind the assailant & put a dagger to his throat. "what do we say to the lady?" the man says between gasps "i-i'm sorry." i growl in his ear "you're gutless. but what processes the food in your keg here? how about we find out?" he whines in his increasingly annoying voice "good god! no, please!" i growl in his ear again "give me one good reason why i shouldn't carve out your adams apple with a rusty pickaxe." "there isn't. just be quick." i crack his neck, sensing i won't get any fight out of him.
