He wrote novels in magic marker on playing cards, tore wings off cicadas before eating them, said that's the fatty part.

The Game
We played hangman to pass the time. In the womb. The cord in my hands. No one else remembers him. The word -- it was brother.

Slightly late with today's top of the triumvirate, but only because I've just got home to post it.

They told me not to play with fire. Now the entire world is burning, and it's my fault. Does it still look like I'm playing?

And Sunday's sample

When I was young, I played with dolls. Now I don't have any dolls, so I play with people. Soon I'll run out of people as well.

I saw a piece on Discovery yesterday about a practice in Madagascar, called Famadihana, in which dead people appear in your dreams,obligating you to exhume their bones, invite friends and family over, and spend a years wages on throwing them a big party.

I grabbed the bloody, quivering heart, and tore it from his still warm chest. There, that should satisfy any valentine.

There is strychnine in the chocolates, and the teddy bear is booby-trapped. The roses are just roses. I am not a monster.
