"There was a moment when you looked at a child still strapped into his car seat but with his little body torn open like a laundry bag - or when you looked at a head sticking out of a trailer wall, the skin peeled down the cheeks by its cataclysmic passage - and you wondered why in the hell the world had been created in the first place. Good things were in short supply, and so much of the rest was downright rancid." Sep 23, 2017 05:53PM

"Once upon a time, the world was full of dreams, despite its heartache, and love, despite its brokenness.
Once upon a time, the world was full of color: the egg-yolk yellow of highway stripes framed by pitch-black tar and a blurred rainbow of wildflowers."

"Are you ready for our last transaction?
The prisoner, gleaming and clean, hairless and smooth, stood up.
You know no fear, the yellow man said smiling, rising to his full height.
The prisoner shook his head.
You are an historic figure now, a fellow of enormous achievement. What a true and fine example of a man you have become.
The prisoner grinned a gap-toothed smile.
The yellow man unfurled his serrated fingers."
