but really

by mickharris

it begins when jake meets todd

at a bar, online


my entire life up to this point hinges on a chance meeting of two stephen king characters roleplayed on a livejournal community


two blond boys

born from one mind i find runs parallel to mine

when i’m 13

alone in our small town library painted chocolate brown

cool smooth mexican tile floors

shoddy beige carpet

tilted wine boxes offering paperbacks crackling with shedding dustcovers

like fruit

and i pick up carrie

and misery

and it’s all over from there
