This is often my scan.


Told throughout the eyes of a anonymous teenage boy, a undeniable form of gentle sees the narrator try and locate a few type of solidarity in a existence from which he feels more and more disconnected. As his kin, friendships, sexuality or even his flavor in song and pornography start to suppose far away from him, his alienation expands. The issues that when intended every little thing to him are stripped of an essence he starts off to doubt they ever had. He fixates on a profile of a boy that he unearths on the net, projecting illusory rules upon someone that he hasn't ever met yet feels a profound intimacy with. Feeling an increasing number of misplaced, he makes an attempt to see the relationship among a disparate set of coincidences, items and occasions: a lifeless, mangled poultry, the funeral of his most sensible friend’s father, a awful event with LSD, obsessive sexual fantasies and the disintegrating suburban lifestyles during which he was once raised.

Example text

Like nine or something? Maybe a little after. I should be up by then ... " "Oh cool ... yeah ... that'd be great. I was gonna say ... because I have to umm ... I have to go to Luke's dad's funeral first. 52 "Oh shit - it's today? " "Man. OK. Well ... Jesus ... say hey to Luke. Tell him to come round if he ... fuck ... I dunno man ... " "Ok, I'll do that. " I've only got one suit. Luckily, it's black. My parents got it for me about a year ago or something. They said it'd be useful to have for important occasions.

Luke interrupts me. His tone is predictable. " He must have had to say that so many times, like he's been getting gifts. " That's him. "Soon. " "Not really. " "My aunt has done everything. I think Emma wants to come round. " I don't want to know in a way. "I don't know. " 37 "Oh - it's a boy that lives across the road - he's playing with a basketball. He's kinda hot, actually, ha. " Luke doesn't answer. Maybe he heard a different sound. Sometimes he ignores me when he doesn't want to listen. It's like he's equipped with a switch.

There are sticks lying around and branches off some of the trees. They're dirty though and I don't want to get any smudges on the suit that might freak Luke out or distract him from the obvious when I get to the funeral. I hold out the lighter and rub my fingers round it like I'm trying to work out what I'm holding rather than thinking about what I'm meant to be doing. My hand shakes and I rock a little bit where I'm crouching. I readjust my crouch a bit to make sure I don't topple 57 over. I start noticing the sound of gravel moving each time my feet change position.
