Default Byronic Misanthrope


Huddled in the open air. The restaurant umbrella tassels spread out and flail in the light breeze. In a squinting day, the under umbrella is heavy, and the dark mass that makes it so is bent close over the old journal. Writing, arms around brown dirty pages.

Dark unkempt thick and falling over hands and pages shields unwelcome looks. Pale blue eyes look out of the darkness searching the street for thieves that would steal the masterpiece. He sees her across the avenue.

She follows. But he cannot afford distractions.

"Mad World" held high and loud walks by taking forever to fade.
