THE WORST KIND OF HORROR


Prologue to: THE WORST KIND OF HORROR

Lissa Anderson is home now... another work day ended!
Oh, to be sure... this was a day from hell right from the beginning!
What she endured at the start of her morning made this a day of horror!
In fact, that was... The Worst Kind Of Horror!

THE WORST KIND OF HORROR

(Herndon, Virginia)


Another slow motion,
Painfully the-other-side-of-ordinary,
Long day has passed before my glazed over eyes.
My day started molasses slow --
Because my coffee maker died,
Just as it began to filter liquid birth through the aromatic brown grounds,
As I lusted over the best life giving elixir ever discovered by man.
Goddamn it!
That mechanical failure was a real bitch!
So, as an alternative to my morning caffeine fix…
I drank a cup of hot tea.
Yuck!
That was... The Worst Kind Of Horror!
