[ONE-SHOT] [Nellis] Not now, Ellis...Was this over before it ever began?
Nick could still remember his first meeting with Ellis, the mechanic from Savannah. He was a hick, a Southern guy who speaks with an annoying accent, and had probably never touched any poker die in his life. He would also put his bet on Ellis picking a goddamn car or a horse over a lady anytime.
As for Nick himself, he was a conman, somebody who cheats and gambles for a living. In his world, cars are for stealing and escaping, not for repairing and loving. In his world, horses are for eating. In his world, ladies are lovely, as long as they don't start picking money off your pockets.
In his world, the variable named Ellis will never play any part in it.
Not now, and never will anymore.
Nick stared at the body on the ground. It was still shivering slightly, whether if it's from the pricking cold night wind or from the spasm it was experiencing, Nick doesn't know, and doesn't care.

MercyOh sweet God how the grassland
ignites in moonlight tonight
I must thank you for creating
her tangled fingers' slow pace
through the handsome rain Her
trochaic kinesthesia to rhythms
in Stravinsky's The Rite of
Spring Is this how you meant
for us to love you Yahweh
Tumbling clumsily down hills
of sheets into perpetually
immutable silence I could love
you like that I think I've been
practicing on this Savanna
for days and months Lost in
her crystal canvas Rolling crests
and troughs And when she touches
me Oh fair Lord I'm dragged into
your city past Gethsemane's
pulsing green and gold
Please hold us together
under this luminous stretch
Oh Father We are live
unclothed Our reflections awash
with the skin of your sun
Keep in Touch!
