the watchers.

Posted in Uncategorized by jon reine on October 23, 2009

the little boy watched the gorillas through the glass.  he had never been this close to such intimidating creatures in his life.  one slowly approached the boy and, for a brief moment, they locked eyes.  The darker primate betrayed its cruel indifference even as it seemed to understand.  the boy imagined the strength in those hands pinning his arms to his body and those sharp teeth sinking into his flesh.  it sent a shiver up his spine.  the gorilla turned its hulking body away and left, in search of food.  the boy went into the corner of his cage and cried himself to sleep.
