THE DECONSTRUCTION OF SCROOGE


Ah, the fever nightmare that is A Christmas Carol!
Read it again and again to witness a masterpiece of forever horror!
But, the story was written back then.
What do you get from the story today through modern eyes with...
The Deconstruction Of Scrooge!

RLJ





THE DECONSTRUCTION OF SCROOGE

(Herndon, Virginia)


What does Santa Claus and Ebenezer Scrooge really have to do with each other in the minds of believers?
Is Santa Claus actually referenced in A Christmas Carol... is he really The Ghost of Christmas Present?
Obviously, Scrooge was guilt ridden and had surely partaken in a little too much Laudanum that fateful night!
Christmas can be a real nightmare... guilt and loneliness can make a man psychotic... and horror feels more horrible that day... be it way back then or right now today!

CAKED IN MUD (AN EXCERPT)


Days have passed since Carla Ohn's 3 day ordeal in the Santa Monica mountains!
She still cannot believe that all 110 pounds of her 5'5" frame beat hardcore nature!
Oh, she believed she was going to die several times!
But, as she discovered during the ordeal, all she needed was her wits!
Oh yea, and make sure that your adversary is... Caked In Mud!

CAKED IN MUD  (AN EXCERPT)

The mountain lion looked oh-so-pitiful as it was writhing in pain while trying to keep afloat in the mud hole!
Carla Ohn's 3 day excursion into the depths of hell was now almost over... and she was so happy!
Her evening jog, 3 days ago, morphed into a twisted cat and human terror tale of wilderness survival!
"I won, goddamn it!" She spat those words at the huge cat staring at her with now pitiful eyes... and she was not falling for it... the cat has to die tonight!

RADIATION BURNS


Sometimes horror is the greatest irony!
And today,
12-19-2018,
Everybody in my oft times insane America looks like me because of...
Radiation Burns!

RADIATION BURNS

(Herndon, Virginia)


I remember the days long past when I thought my life was the normal way to live!
Oh, by no means was my life realized in a utopia... this is the USA, for god's sake!
Things could be tough for a man of my color, but... I am a proud American, anyway!
And then they voted HIM into the presidency... and he opened his stupid mouth... and then the bombs fell in my USA... and today, everyone is my color... from the radiation burns!

EVEN TREE SPIRITS SUFFER THE COLD (AN EXCERPT)


Sergio Drivas brought Kraneia to America 52 years ago when he was a 6 year old.
She was given to him by his grandfather who insisted that young Sergio take good care of her.
Sergio did just that... and she still occupies the safety of the center of his large backyard garden.
They have had quite a life together and it is too bad that he is aging like the mortal he is.
Anyway, Kraneia is tough and the outdoors existence is her reality.
And on a bitter cold night like tonight... Even Tree Spirits Suffer The Cold!

Polar vortex, she heard her master say... what is a polar vortex, she asks herself... she never felt this kind of horrific cold when she was first rooted in Greece fifty years ago!

The dead girl was still warm... an estimated six hours later... and that was not the weird thing about her!
Det. Jones and Det. Jon Marks, and the forensic team, were all floored as usual by the zombie scene!

Both detectives, guns already in their hands, gave each other that knowing look of who would shoot her in the head... as she opened her glazed eyes and bared her foam covered teeth!

THICK BLOOD (AN EXCERPT)


Samantha Mae has already forgotten that she was attacked three nights ago!
She was grabbed off the jogging trail, dragged into the woods and bitten in her neck!
Three nights later, she has emerged from the bushes feral and hungry for humans as food!
She is now an undead feral stalker of the living, and she craves... Thick Blood!

THICK BLOOD  (AN EXCERPT)

...The first time Samantha tasted blood, the pulsing gush of wet iron rushing into her mouth, she almost threw up!
Through the blood red haze of her new feral mindset, the evil hunger kept the blood flowing to her gut!
After she drained her victim, she instinctively snapped his lifeless neck... he would not come back undead!
It was almost sunrise time, now... the sleepiness was overtaking her... her skin was already warming... time to hide in the dark of the day... until the next night!...

DEEP DOWN SOUTH WHERE THE BLOOD IS ALWAYS WARM

Angelique really loves the throbbing nightlife in the always warm and hopping Miami Beach area!
The best thing she ever did, 75 years ago, was to move to Florida where her blood is always warm!
If she could actually see her reflection in a mirror she would marvel at her pale, but ever 24 year old, skin!
All it took was one bite to her neck to make her forever young... and all it takes is one nightly bite to a neck to keep her forever young!

PERSONALITY TYPES


That man read some insanity igniting drivel on the Internet! 
That man loaded his guns into his car!

He walked into a certain pizza joint looking for trouble!
He shot up the place!
And the police did not kill him... they arrested him!
And now starts the assessment of his... Personality Type!

No two people on this planet earth are the same as the other person seen as another!
What makes you a passive wallflower is not what makes another a cocky motherfucker!
And what makes that one a sane sentinel does not make this one a homicidal gun stroking lunatic!
The horror in the story of what makes a certain personality is terrifying in its complexity... made awful when a gun is in certain hands!

She was born days after the first bombs of destruction fell.

The first ICBM from China fell directly onto these Washington, DC residents... destroying them all, along with the most ignorantly racist American President in history!...

Salem grabbed my right forearm, looked up into my tear filled bloodshot eyes and said, "See, I told you my dreams would come true!" Yea, Salem... but, death by trigger-happy police officer?"...

STEP OUT INTO THE MOONLIGHT  (AN EXCERPT)

(Idaho Falls, Montana)


...5 year old Tammy is standing at her bedroom window, looking out into the shimmery dark woods.
The moment is midnight, again, and the calls of the distant wolf-things are pulling her like a magnet.
She realizes that her mother will be very mad at her if she goes outside to follow the trail of the full moon.
But she knows they want her... whatever they are...and she wants them... all she has to do is step out into the moonlight... but not tonight!...

A DREAM INTERPRETATION (AN EXCERPT)


Is a dream reality?
Does what happen inside your head,
When you are sound asleep,
Really count as reality when you awaken?
Ask Allen Samuel, 
Who just woke up to bright sunshine heating his face...
And blood gushing from his neck,
Covering his sheets and pillowcase!

RLJ







A DREAM INTERPRETATION  (AN EXCERPT)

(Bristol, Connecticut)


...What is the frightening "it" that exists inside the ether between a dream and a nightmare?
The dreamer cannot possibly answer that question while consumed by lustful id confusion!
One night the dreamer is embraced by a fantasy dream lover who could only exists to serve his ego!
Another night, she is a sullen vampire ripping out his muscular throat and gorging on his squirting crimson blood!...

FRESH MEAT (AN EXCERPT)


The secrets inside deep woods forests,
In places so remote explorers travel to map them,
There exists the chance that one might end up as... Fresh Meat!

WKL





FRESH MEAT  (AN EXCERPT)

(Aniakchak National Preserve, Alaska)


...I admit it, the first time I tasted human flesh I was repulsed by what I was chewing on!
But, my mentor guided me in the ways to season human meat... and how to enjoy it!
It was never murder, he told me, when we captured a man and cooked him like a hog!
This is our sacred land and if those men insist on coming out here... well, we'll eat them, too!...

BETTER OFF ASLEEP


Quincy Lawrence had a crazy dream last night!
He eventually awakened... disappointed!
And he came to the undeniable conclusion that he is...
Better Off Asleep!

QOL





BETTER OFF ASLEEP

(Anchorage, Alaska)


I thought I saw God last night... in my bed... in a dream state eternity of enlightenment!
There was no woman involved in this bliss... only sandman star pillows and marshmallows!
I was just about to discover the meaning of life when... I woke the fuck up... pissed off!
And then the horror returned to me... I was only in a stupid dream... and there is still no god... and there is no woman, either!

THIS IS HOW I DIED TODAY


Sal Amendola is no longer of this earth!
His mortal coil has departed this plane of existence!
His wife helped his soul to leave his body behind!
If you could ask Sal a question he would answer with...
This Is How I Died Today!

SLA





THIS IS HOW I DIED TODAY

(Saddle River, New Jersey)



Well, it sure as hell is hot wasn't the frying pan smacking me in the back of my head!
It sure wasn't the twenty-four horrifically painful knife stabs to my back and my neck!
It wasn't the dragging of my damaged body from the kitchen to the tool shed behind the house!
It was the heart attack from the fear as I watched Martha power up the table saw!

HERE THEY COME AGAIN


Well... my name is Elmore Morehead.
The sounds in my attic have started again.
And all I can say, or do, about it is bemoan the fact that...
Here They Come Again!

ELM





HERE THEY COME AGAIN

(Norfolk, Virginia)


They are at it again, up there in the warm dark space inside my hollow stuffy attic!
When they start knocking and mumbling and moaning up there, Halloween is almost here!
Are they ghosts of goblins or demons, or such... so far, they will not reveal themselves to me!
Anyway, I'll try to get some sleep tonight even though some things invisible, and loud, stomps around in the attic above my bed!

HURRICANE DONALD TRUMP


I can almost taste the briny salt water blowing out of my TV from the force of...
Hurricane Donald Trump!

RLJ





HURRICANE DONALD TRUMP

(Herndon, Virginia)


I didn't really want to look at the TV news today because depression is not fun!
Yet, I was compelled to watch the horror of nature reforming human reality again!
Nature made beauty, in and around the Atlantic ocean, has been ripped apart like tissue paper!
I thought I had seen all the horror there was for the day... then, bat shit crazy Donald Trump blew into my TV, again, like a bigger hurricane!

MONSTERS OF THE OCEAN


A minor poetic reach for an understanding of those...
Monsters Of The Ocean!

RLJ





MONSTERS OF THE OCEAN

(Planet Earth)


The biggest monsters in the world sit mostly just off the coasts of all the continents of the earth!
They are created by a thing godlike in its awesome power of wind and rain and warmth and energy!
Its name is Weather... and its deadliest spawn are tornadoes and hurricanes, by many names deadly!
Humans are at their mercy, for where can they hide when when it all decide to smash and destroy those who covet the desire to control them?

THERE IS FIRE IN THAT SUNSHINE


The flesh that has been turned by a vampire's bite is cursed!
Every cell becomes infused with the ancient evil of the night!
And that flesh burns with a hellfire heat when exposed to full sunlight!
Vampires know... There Is Fire In That Sunshine!

THERE IS FIRE IN THAT SUNSHINE

(Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)


Camella the vampyress is staring out at the brightening morning through the blinds of the bedroom window.
The sun is rapidly coming up and she is now essentially trapped inside the house of her latest victim.
Soon, the sleep of the damned undead will overtake her and she will unwillingly succumb to its clarion call!
She is in a panic... she enjoyed the big man's blood too much and lost track of time... and now she is trapped inside, because there is fire in that sunshine!
