A Moment In Time by Obscure Images >>> a cDc publication.......1989 <<< -cDc- CULT OF THE DEAD COW -cDc- _______________________________________________________________________________ 0. Just as the scientist can see a fragment of life through a microscope, I can see random events. Endless moments in time swirling before my eyes just like so much mist. The images are real to me. I read about some of them in the newspaper. They aren't my moments, but they are part of me nonetheless. I have to think.... 1. The man bent down and kissed his daughter on the cheek. "I'll be back in a few days, dear, be good for your mother." "Goodbye daddy." 2. The door slammed as the man in the black trenchcoat left the small house in which he lived. The dogs barked, a cat yowled, and in a house down the street a camera clicked. 3. In the woods outside of a small town in Pennsylvania the leaves are rustled by a small boy running. The boy, clad only in his underwear, was panting, his face turning a bright shade of red. Not as red, however, as the wound he was about to receive when his father shot him in the back less then 30 seconds later. 4. The tall man watched his young daughter run back into the house before getting into his car. The fireball that erupted from his house flashed in his eyes as he drove down the street. 5. The camera is always watching. Liz ignored the constant clicking that came along with sex with her husband. "The sex is great, but I wish he would get rid of the whip," she thought as he put the camera down and came to bed. 6. The father carries the dead little boy back to the car and puts him in a garbage bag that he will throw into the furnace when he gets to work. 7. The man in the black trenchcoat steps off of the bus onto the busy sidewalk. He walks for 2 blocks where he enters a building, gets into the elevator, gets off at the 5th floor, walks into his office, takes off his trenchcoat, and sits down at his desk. "Delores, could you get me some coffee?" 8. Finally satisfied, Larry falls asleep. Liz climbs out of the bed and goes to the bathroom to wash herself off. The blood swirls down the shower drain, mixing with water and semen. "He was better then usual tonight, I wonder if he got a promotion." 9. A moment in time is full of more things then a person could ever hope to live through. All one can do is take his or her piece of that time and use it until it is burnt out and gone. When you are out of time, you will do what you must, liking it or not. It is impossible to tell when you will have exhausted your time on this planet, so spend your time as well as possible. You only have one moment, make it a bright one. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ This story is for Dina who understands me less then she could ever imagine. -oi _ _ _____________________________________________________________________ /((___))\|The Convent..........619/475-6187 The Dead Zone.........214/522-5321 [ x x ] |Demon Roach Undrgrnd.806/794-4362 Greenpeace's IGB......916/673-8412 \ / |PURE NIHILISM..........new # soon Ripco.................312/528-5020 (' ') |Tequila Willy's GSC..209/526-3194 The Works.............617/861-8976 (U) |===================================================================== .ooM |(c)1989 cDc communications by Obscure Images. 09/30/89-#118 \_______/|All Rights Pissed Away.
