Roy's beep

lot more riff


The door open I felt him come in, he walked to the back of the Short Limb Saloon. I heard him speak “bar keep whiskey” he slid out a chair and sat at the back with the wall behind him. Who was this aspiration black Texan Hat, mounted black colt 44? Barkeep eight more chairs, the words filled the room. He sat there like a mountain of stone. Barkeep there is a rattle snake in my drink, bring me some tobacco. He took a cartage pulled out the slug and poured the power in his drink and put out his smoke in the glass. Flame shot through the roof. Then he quietly drank the ghastly brew in one gulp. The chairs filled one by one they sat staring at the window. You could see the intense communication between them, but could not hear a word. Who were they, were they here to rob the bank, was there going to be a gun fight? Then one bolted for the back door, the other sat and stared at the window. The barkeep now shivered with fear, to tell the truth I was not too sure that I should be here. Another left by the side door. Then it happen the swing doors fly open and there he stood, his nine shooters drawn, it was kid curios. “I saw that cat come here, where is that low down sneaking cat, I will fill you with lead you varmint.” Just then his tail whips the chair cutting the legs off like a chain saw. Hey mouse we got to get back to the heard, there is a storm brewing and those doggie mites stamped. The saloon was empty where did they go? Who were they?
Follow the trail to the black hole, the barkeep said “that the black hole gang”!
god bless

What? Where's the elephant in all this? Stampeding with the herd I heard someone say. Doggone it all!

Wow very interesting Roy, a nice added twist, lets see who can bring us to that black hole, and maybe find Jim's elephant. :P Interesting very interesting and the plot thickens.

Kriti said...

Plot definitely thickens with this... Nicely written Roy!

Aha! It's a western now...neat. Did not see that coming.

I'm following this and I think I need therapy :) It's definitely an interesting twist and the different perspectives are making it heightened along the way. I did enjoy this new turn in direction - very inventive.

Impressive! It brought back a vivid scene from one of those old western films where the swing door of a bar swings open and Clint Eastwood stands with a cigar in his mouth, with his signature squint and with that if-looks-could-kill glare. Every single soul in the bar turns to look at him. There's pin-drop silence except for the sound of the swing door still swinging open and close. Loved it! The elephant in bronze pants was probably sucked into the blackness of the void and time travelled into the cowboy scene. He is the audience here.

Loved the jump into your reality of the Void Roy...staying true to your roots. I can feel and see that Sepia look to the bar as you walk through those doors...peering through the smoke haze of the void..tying to see the players...what lurks there now..spinning, spinning down the rabbit hole..or should I say " Cat"...Nice Twist!!!!
