WILD LIFE

Half naked Himba people in Nambia, a sweaty camera crew and millions of TV viewers witnessed our marriage vows. 

I willingly followed Trevor up the Himalayas, drank sun-scorched canteen water instead of Cabernet and swatted mosquitos in the Amazon.

In Nepal he slipped on something and narrowly escaped being trampled by a choleric elephant. 

“I’m done,” he whispered later. “Let’s go home.”

“You are my home.” 

Back in the states, safe from cheetah attacks and hippo stampedes, Trevor’s mangled body lies on a cold steel table. The driver, texting on her cell phone, never saw him cross the street. 

As it appeared originally.

HAFIZ’S  SOLUTION

            “You’re unbelievable, Trisha,” said Joe. “We’re stuck in the middle of nowhere and you’re reading poetry?”

            “The tow truck’s on its way. Nothing we can do but wait.” She grinned at him from the passenger seat, her feet propped on the dashboard.  “Relax. Enjoy the breeze.”

            “The repair bill’s gonna be astronomical.”

            “Could just be the battery.”

            “Or the transmission.”

            Joe’s mind raced from one awful conclusion to another as he paced back and forth in front of the stalled minivan.

            Trisha giggled.

            “What’s so funny?”   

            “Listen.” She read, “‘O someone should start laughing! Someone should start wildly laughing. Now!’”

HOME FIRES BURNING

            “Nights are long and my bed ever so cold…”            

             She stopped writing, crumpled her letter and recalled their conversation the day before he left.

_____

            “The last time you went for six months it turned into four years.”            

            “I am needed there.”            

            “You are needed here.”            

           “Debbie, my dearest.” He placed his hands on either side of her face. “Accompany me. You will love London.”

             Deborah Franklin laid another sheet of parchment on the desk, dipped her quill in the inkwell and wrote.

WHEN THE NEED ARISES

            It starts with a certain look, and you know it’s over. That’s how it is with Annie and me.

            Without saying a word, she tells me what I don’t want to hear. We’ve both suffered too long and she needs to be free.

            As we hike to our favorite mountain spot to say goodbye I envision life without her.

            “Wish you didn’t have to go, Annie.”

            She wags her tail, and feebly licks my hand. I caress her head, press the muzzle of my pistol against it and pull the trigger.

            Whoever said men don’t cry was full of shit.

LIFE FLIGHT

            “Are you sure we’re doing the right thing, Gerald?”

            “I’d say it’s kinda late to be asking that question.”

            Vanessa looked out the oval airplane window and then at the Asian infant in her arms. Her dream come true. She’d traveled ten-thousand miles through tangled red tape to realize it.

            “Do you think it will bug him that he doesn’t look like us?”

            With an impish grin Gerald scrolled through his iPad until he came to a recent snapshot of the two of them. His blond hair and freckles contrasted her tight curls and chocolate complexion. 

            “What do you think?”

KONG FUZI

            Like his imposing father, Qiu towered over most boys his age. Yet, unlike Shuliang He, he preferred serenity to battle.

            “Eat.” Zhenzai stroked her son’s cheek and tapped his crooked nose. “Your rice is getting cold.”  

            He rolled his chopsticks between his thumb and forefinger, his gentle eyes filled with pain and tears.

            “Mama, why am I so ugly?”

            She hugged him. “Not so.”

            “It is so.”

           “Listen to me.” She tightened her embrace. “Someday you will be a great teacher.”

            “No one will hear me. They will only see my face.”

            “Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
