beach justice

Only change in the tower is the copy of the Merrickville Phoenix. The stranger postures on his car, protecting his self with stances, afraid that he will not be liked. At some point there is a moment when you wonder whether this moment is one of the few that you will look back on – if this moment will make the TSN Top Ten Moments With Your Father, swimming before golf. Moments, watered down by locks and doors, are part politics and part unique- locks and doors hide things that are unique. Locks and doors protect things that are unique. The blue – checkered flag waves from the eighteenth to the parking lot, and to the beach, the stranger, and the crowd of men drinking on the roof. It isn’t impossible to remove a deadbolt – axe, crowbar. It just takes more time. There’s a saying in golf that you’re only cheating yourself.

Never blame someone for having a strategy: If you watched how The Hoff stood a certain way and talked a certain way, and then succeeding in the end of the episode, with a bit of help from KITT, well, then, how do you think you will choose to stand when you want to meet women.

Never blame a gladiator for fighting when thrown into the sand. Our hindsight says protest the games: sacrifice yourself. Words make less sense when running from a lion. 

Blame the person who throws the body in the ring

Blame the person who trains 

Blame the people who know the difference

“Beach Justice,” a short story by Michael Knight

Characters described with brand names, height, weight, teeth, playing a sport. “Be a man.” One character is ostracised because of the way he acts in the game. This character becomes resentful against the group of men – the majority of bodies on the course. A metaphor, here, relates to the size of trees, referring to a thick penis and a phallocentric, heteronormative, hierarchical interpretation of wood. Willows bend with a gust. The vengeful ostracized character feels bad because of an attack by the evil majority. A love interest of an evil character shows some empathy toward the ostracized character but is taken away by the evil character. The evil characters laugh, showing how they originate from pure evil. The story becomes the accidental adaptation of a religious fable, making audiences relate to the story but they just can’t put their finger on why, this story that condemns pure evil. Revenge is meant to hold the reader: There must be justice: Beach justice. The writer has written an accidental plea for your support, come to our group and we will protect you from pure evil, because pure evil exists. End with attack on pure evil with beer bottle- love interest looks to ostracized character – and a gun comes out.

Clouds in the sky and green trees, balls landing in the water and a beer bottle, the bar, noise

The situation in the bar draws attention from what is happening elsewhere.

The best way to control a group of people is to (a) assume that they are idiots, (b) make associations between new ways of acting and success, and (c) put them against each other. Make men compete with each other and make women fight against their selves. The situation in the bar was something else: Light from sunset was coming through these cheap blinds, and the smell of beer and sweat accented the tense feelings in the room, providing air for the struggle to breathe. His shirt was torn from the cut glass and a slit in his skin had started to produce blood that blotched slightly darker than his red shirt. Pure strength came from this character in a way that nobody had ever recognized. We stood in awe, witnesses to his force. And then the stranger, well-coiffed and all, he reaches. I knew all along that he was a winner, this man: We liked the same team. I loved the weather. I love your stance. I love your stance.
