Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

As the moon rises over the Yellow Rose of Texas, a cerebral cortex liquifies against a darkened sky. Across the spinal fluid lagoon, the Bad Magician does the back stroke and finds the deep end covered with the skin of Tom DéLay. The Bad Magician fashions a kayak out of the skin, climbs inside, and floats upstream into a spurting artery of America. His epidermis lost, Tom DéLay crawls onto the shore, clutching his throat as millipedes devour his hands. The last light of the dying moon spills white poison into a spoon: the Bad Magician feeds DéLay 10,000 lies in liquid form. The Bad Magician learns how to make a wall out of Tom DéLay, but it falls and crumbles like leaves born too soon.

Tom Délay awakens from the dream and blames the Children for the tic in his eye. The Children turn and run.

This short bit of epidermis stretching was first deposited in a comments box at Corrente, around the time of the Terry Schiavo story. Terry: Tom says hi, and he's sorry he used you as political currency. No, wait, he's not.

"Opinions You Should Have" says Delay has been offered asylum in North Korea by Kim Il Jong. I think it would be a great marriage.

Sort of like "The Man Who Would Be Bug Kim King"
