Nitrate

His knotted eyebrows pulsated in the sultry editing room. He calmly searched…Forward…Rewind. For days, he’d been crouching on his knees cutting and pasting rolls of nitrate with cooked up stories.

He thought, “I’ll put it together. Release it. Sell it. Become a millionaire.” A faded smile spread across his smoked out cheeks. If only he could remember what came next?

An Australian vet could have told him gyrating his belly in sick laughter, “Emus and kangaroos unnecessarily worry because they cannot walk backwards. It’s not worth it, for they could get caught like us in rusty closets full of dreams.”

    Very interesting.

    For WordPress, click on the “html” tab, then paste in the html content for the bloghop. The trick is to make sure you’re in the html screen.

      Thanks! 🙂 The first person to help on this. Well, see I did try, but WordPress.com doesn’t really accept javascript. So, if there is any other code it might be easier for it to embed. Anyway, I have sent in a word to the support group. Let’s see. Tried the html option many times. 🙂

      Sam.

  3. I’m going to have to chew on this for a long time to glean its meaning. Some great imagery here.
