Lynn, She’s not there.

“We can meet Cain, Judas and Lucifer by being aware of our own desires to be false and to betray, to kill our brother and to kill ourselves, that our kiss has death in it and that there is a piece of the soul that will live forever cast out from both human and heavenly company.”

~ Pg. 169 Praxis, James Hillman The Dream and the Underworld. 

2003 in the morning,

Lynn drove into the Wall-Mart parking lot.

She was driving a 1960 Pontiac convertible.

Sunglasses pulled back her dark hair.

A cigarette moved as she pulled it out of her mouth to talk.

Don Henley’s lyrics came to mind,

“But I can see you, your brown skin shining’ in the sun, you got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby,”

Lynn’s image passed.

In Wall-Mart,

the Radio

A dagger a song. 

into my heart

She’s Not There,
