Abstract

Braden Welborn Bernini's Apollo and Daphne From Behind Later he would think of it in his cubicle. Would recall, twisting from his whiny-wheeled chair to reach the phone's dead insistences, Apollo catching up to her: right hand flung aside for balance, left hand wrapped around the bark firming her belly. Bits of paper would flag and flutter slightly against their sagging forest, edges curling toward fluorescence, sash flying liquid behind him as her skin scaled, hands sprouted, locks went leafy. The phone's snarled cord rooted, fibers webbing from her toenails to the earth, the stained carpet, its deceitful dullness. His eyes on her inner arm, smooth curve branching as he'd answer, his voice softer than he'd expected. Thornton Dial's Blood and Meat: Survival for the World Tiger has gone and hid, now he's needed most, gold stripes flaring quick behind chain link, bones crossed, knotted ropes that yank necks with each bleak beg of sky. He knows he's been sent for, where is he? See, what Tiger's got, it's rare in this steel-bought city ­ twine can't choke, see? Knife can't bleed, see?
