Cary Church is enchantingly voguish as he lounges cross-legged on a lavender chair. He is taciturn, for life’s load bears heavily upon his shoulders. Meant for the liquidation of Satan’s citadels, a great, steely Beretta lies unused in his right hand. The spotless grey suit and white shirt he wears are merchandise he was laden with by the woman in his dreams, taken from her store of abundance.
The left hand habitually holds a glass of gin. Depleted to its last drops, this goblet is a doppelganger for a cup of the devil’s wrath which he drained to the dregs. Now he finds himself in a state of emotional and alcoholic inebriation.
“My companion Israel stopped listening to reason a long time ago. He looks for answers to his scores of problems in all the wrong places. If only that man would listen…Then maybe he’d have a change of heart and be rescued from legalism.” He murmurs to no one in particular.
Cherry light from a horde of candles pervades the motel room until it pours outside. This luminosity is the lifeblood of choice red vines upon a fertile slope, spilling from a wound Cary notices in his side.
He believes all is lost, with the healing clouds withholding their rain. Nevertheless the good shepherd says:
“I will never leave you nor forsake you Cary. I’ll get you through the Tribulation’s pain.”
*The beretta is a metaphor for the word of God.
