    That Most Important Thing: Love

    THREE MINUTES AND TWENTY-SEVEN SECONDS WITH A. ZULAWSKI

    “Tell him you love him”, they keep telling her.

    Straddling a half dead man in a blood drenched room she keeps refusing.

    “Just say it, tell him you love him”.

    Cameras push in, closer. The room is saturated with all of the lights the film crew have set up and it blanches her skin of any color as she sits there paralyzed in her nearly translucent negligee. She sees a man in…

    Martin

    ★★★★★

    Martin doesn’t think much of being a vampire. He knows what he gets up to once the sun goes down. The way those women look at him when he suddenly appears.

    Of dial-up internet.

    So just listen

    And stop worrying

At first, I did not know whose life it was, as these images came towards me at a high velocity. Blurred. Jangled. Sun damaged. The faces of strangers. The shapes of rooms I have never been in. All of them, like stars or insects, either too big or too small to…
