Home Sweet Homicide: a tale of reasonable madness

Blurb

This is a story for the mad, especially those not afraid to show it. Home Sweet Homicide is a surreal novella divided into three parts. In the style of writers such as Williams S. Burroughs, Hunter S. Thompson, and John Barth it explores the way humans disconnect from reality, and try to manipulate it to their liking. At times funny, and often disturbing, it's a tale of modern alienation told by a narrator who is steadily losing any grasp on reality. What events are real are entirely up to the reader. For those afraid of the abyss, it's just a dark dream. For others, it's all too true.

PART ONE
STAINED GLASS


Waiting by the side of the street, watching cars stream past, we cringed in fear at the wild creatures which seemed to be dancing this way and that in the middle of the road. Though we took bets on which of the three would be hit by a passing motorist first, none of them every really appeared to be in peril. They stayed in a cluster, slinking between the vehicles rocketing down Lakeshore Drive. Several occasions seemed to imply that one or all had been smashed by a speeding commuter. However, in the blink of an eye the trio is back in the street giving us the finger and making obscene gestures.  Noticing a scar on the neck of one I suddenly realized, “That‘s us.”

“Fuck you saying?” Linc inquired.

I pointed at the one staring me down, and it pointed back.

Ms. Red lit a cigarette, “Then it’s a draw. Since we’ll all make it, none of us‘ll win. I mean, we‘re already here, right? So lets split that money between us.”

“Indeed.” Linc frowned, stuffing his hands deep into the pockets of his suit.

“Now, now,” I called for attention as I sparked up my own stick,

“Lets wait and see. I, for one, have no desire to split things six ways.”
