Sometimes I need a smooth latte to squelch my thirst. I feel primed and ready to explode. Everything stands at attention, snaps back at my grin, a feel good moment that just wants to burst forth and cop a feel. A smirk and shift in posture that leads the audience on a magic carpet ride—a political romp through the grittiest of Safaris. I’d show Hemingway around whilst reading a Fleming. I’m a spy built for battle–a mage destined to take the tower in hooded geekiness. I’d stand atop arms akimbo awaiting for a bolt of lightning to strike my chest. Heart Attack, a flash, and then the sky ripped open and a bolt of Zeus struck my chest, singed the hair, Vibraniumed my rib cage, and jump started my heart like a Chevette possessed to run. I would have fallen to my knees if I were a lesser man, but instead I transcended—I floated. I found my path and it wasn’t grounded in literals and metaphors it was steeped in literary sophistication. As my vision cleared there it was—a pen and a piece of paper propped up on a pedestal. Like a fountain run black with squid’s ink it flowed and spurt forth lexicons and dictions that kicked the studded tires and squealed out on the lanes of rhetoric.
