Past master

James starts a leaf of clover. The girl at the drive in window hands you a piece of junk cheese and beef wrapped in a flour tortila for a buck, befitting end to a romantic night initiated by cheap wine. Arsatradero, Matadero. I love these names. The hand without long fingers asks for yours. An old irish folk jingle remastered by James comes on. Distraction. The fingers disentagle for a moment reaching for the Fast forward button. I have had my jar of whiskey you mutter. The fingers entwine convinced that the soothing light at the end of the tunnel is not a freight train coming their way. You never let my favourite songs play, says a grumpy voice from the past. Not missing his cue James reminds you Mirrors vain, gone insane, but the memory remains.

Now now atleast start off the romance with a good vintage bttle of wine, te kind that even Dr.Lecter would appreciate. No cheapoism please.

Are you romanticizing about Hetfield or about the voice from the past or about the hands without long fingers?
Romanticizing about Hetfiled may qualify you for a homosexual btw?

romanticism doesnt suit you my boy. Corny brand of sex humor though fits you lke a tee.
