Put Me to Pasture

Fred Muram - Rug #3 (2008)

He pauses at the top of the carpeted stairs. Right hand gripping the wooden bannister, left palm flat on the patterned yellow wallpaper. A glance down at the steps leading up to here. Fleshy toes pour over the edge. An Elvis Costello record skips below It's almost touching // It will almost // almost // almost. The words send a chill through the chandelier in the hallway. Nothing good comes of regretting. He blinks hard and feels his beard with his upper lip. But without regret, they're only mistakes that will never be fixed.

Scott Matthew - For Dick (mp3)
