Deal Me In

In The Demon's Head #117: Deal Me In
May 24, 2013

It's finally Friday. I'd like to take a moment and say a special hello and good luck to my Fiancée Liz Butler as she begins a new venture coming weekend. I'm very excited, and I feel that she'll do well. Second, if you haven't picked up a copy of "Six Feet Under" yet you can do that either at Smashwords or get the Dual pack of "Life After Dark" and "Six Feet Under" at Amazon for the first time, both are only $.99. As far as promotion goes, that's all I've got. I'd like to say thanks to everyone who reads this blog regularly. Let's take a look at today's picture:

Deal Me In

We're still not sure how it started,
We were playing cards,
And out of nowhere,
A sound came from the back,
Like an explosion,
We thought that it was just something,
On the street,
But then,
The fire began to engulf the entire building,
At a rapid pace,
The doors were blocked,
And the windows,
We couldn't get out,
The fire burned slowly,
But spread,
It kept us all in,
Then there was another explosion,
This time,
It came from the kitchen,
We felt the building start to shake,
And finally it came down,
Everything was black


I came to,
The sunlight outside,
And the fresh air was nice,
I looked around,
And there was  Paul,
Tim, and James,
They were sitting at the table,
I walked over,
"What the hell happened?"
I looked down,
And realized the cards,
They were playing with,
Were completely charred,
Leaving the numbers,
And suits,
Barely visible,
I sat down,
And looked around,
All of their faces,
Were melted,
They seemed to be missing the entire side,
I could see eye sockets,
And in Paul's case,
There was a piece of his brain,
Almost as if left there by accident,
Lodged in the side of his cheek,
"Are you in?" James asked.
"What happened?" I asked again,
"The bar caught fire,
And collapsed,
They cleaned it all up,
But we're still here,
You took the longest to come to,
We've already played 3 hands,
So are you in?"
I looked around,
And for the first time I noticed,
People walking by,
And not giving us a second glance,
I looked back,
Thought about everything that could come,
And took a deep breath,
Deal me In."

About the Piece

"Deal Me In" was an idea that came as soon as I saw the picture. I kind of got my inspiration from a short story that I read of Stephen Kings' some years ago. All in all I have to say that these three pieces may be some of my favorites that I've ever done. I have to say thanks to everyone whose read them and enjoyed them. I'd also like to take a moment and dedicate this piece to my brand new Nephew, Logan Hoss, who was born this morning.
