Hot Bubble Gum

she was a strawberry blonde with a peppermint smile all peaches and cream and maybe just a bit of the devil inside me I was just a joung gun with braces on my teeth browsing a comic bookstore looking for a Batman #19 when she walked in anyone could she was trouble like a burning petrol tanker crashing into a factory of nitroglycerine wearing a Gucci black dress fire engine red lipstick matching shoes and a belt she looked like a woman who was about to go forth and sin and sin and sin... she looked at me smouldering with desire reached into her bag and pulled out a piece of gum seductively removing the wrapper she placed it between her lips like a cigarette then sucked it back with her tongue something exploded inside my head I could feel the air ignite burn the tips of my fingers and nearly set my hair alight my life flashed before my eyes 3 seconds of missed opportunity failed goals, schizophrenic paranoia and sexual anxiety not to mention the time I saw the next door neighbor's wife laying in the backyard sun-tanning indecently then there was darkness and I was alone nothing mattered anymore a warm soothing peace consoled me tranquil calm surrounded and assured me gradually I could see a tunnel of light it shone with brlliance a celestial warmth of divine purity drawn to its heavenly pressence I floated towards it then suddenly WHAM I was laying on my back in the comic bookstore with a taste of peppermint inside my mouth I sat there and looked around the girl was gone just a bubble gum wrapper lay at my feet and in my left hand was a copy of a Batman #19 *penned by Scarecrow Joe
