("JACKSON POLLOCK DECAPITATION" is a tiny little "story" that rams the head of abstract expression onto the body of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.



He lives for moments of abstact distractions. He loves to stare into the myriad shadows overlapping and drowning in toilet bowls. He spaces out on clouds. He dreams up vague meanings for reflections cast on shiny cars in the vaporous heat of summer..

He works as a 911 operator, but doesn't really fit the job description.

"Hello 911," he answers. "Police, fire truck or..." he is abstracted by the whirling screams of a chain-saw that is right behind you.

But you don't have time to answer him anyway.
