A DAMNED SOUL SKULKS HIS ASS OUT THE DOOR STRAIGHT INTO A CITY BUS
Justin A. Clark
**trigger warning: suicide**
GOD, a nonexistent, or at least apathetic, entity
MYSELF, a damned soul
A CIGARETTE, the last thing to grace my lips
LUCA, my son, the only thing that mattered
BUS DRIVER, the first variable in the means of escape
THE BUS, the second variable in the means of escape
FIRST STEP, the love left behind
SECOND STEP, the dreams unfulfilled
FINAL STEP, the guilty farewell
Scene. Indiana. Probably sooner than you think.
A shitty, old house in the center of town.
