big bang

He stood in the cold winter air, his cheap cotton jacket tucked closely to his shivering body. Others similarly bundled with layers of multi colored clothing walked by him, nudging their ways through. Left and right he was hit, hearing their vulgar whispers as they passed. One could learn so much about these vile things just from standing on a cold street, on a cold, and with a cold mind. Their whispers pounded on his perspiring brow, they never seemed to stop, and always grew steadily to a deafening roar.

“Now is the time”

The man groaned and clutched his boiling brow

“Do it now, do it now”

“Yes now”




“No” moaned the man, almost doubled over in agony, his eyes shut tight “stop talking to me damn it, I’ll do it when I want to”


He opened his eyes, feeling the icy wind brush against his fiery cheeks.

“I will make them stop” he mumbled, the words slipping silently into the world a white pearly mist “I, and I alone will stop them, silence them”

“Maybe I shouldn’t”

“No” the man shook his head “stop it, I will silence them”

“I shouldn’t”

“No I shouldn’t, not you, me” cried the man

“Why should I quiet these voices, end their sound”

“Because they hurt me” moaned the man, cradling himself in the frigid air “they’ve always hurt me”

“but was it their voices”

“Yes” the man sobbed, his tears turning to crystal as they touched the air “all of them have”

“Then I must”

The man straightened his tall body “I must” he shifted his bony right hand and wrapped it around a familiar cylindrical device; he winced slightly as his burning skin touched the chilled metal. He smiled, his light blue eyes sparkling with a blank light, his teeth bared to the world in threatening grin. “They’ll all be quiet” he closed his eyes “at this moment, all I hear is me, and no one else”




And they were all silent
