By D. J. Andersen

"When I write, i believe like an armless, legless guy with a crayon in his mouth."
Kurt Vonnegut

In an armless, legless international of my very own, lit purely via a table lamp, a drug addict prays to God for romance, a girl loses love within the tragic throes of dementia, brutal males twist love into anything else, a sociopath poisons love. Love is surrendered in an attic room, love is remembered and longed for years after it used to be lightly thrown down, love is learned in rain beating down at the hood of a motor vehicle trapped in site visitors. whereas I write with a blue crayon, an artist comes to a decision that love is orange, and paints it that means with mannerist brush strokes on a delicately stretched canvass. It has looked as if it would me that nearly every thing ultimately starts off and ends with a few type of love.
