Out of Mind: Bruno

Avatar Author: Escapist Read Bio

Bruno was a real man.
He chased his whiskey with cum from lovers and bandaged his own wounds with wraps as wooden as his heart.
He took his coffee with cinnamon and cayenne and swirled around his friends and his feelings in the swamp and his bourbon.

Bruno let his drinks get to him sometimes.
He secretly played video games that took place in the times of the ancients and in his heart he fought between light and dark mages. Dark mages were stronger but light mages were more accurate. Dark mages were druids who studied from books promoting the self as the supreme and yet light mages were taught to give to others. He was so torn. The church had wrecked him like rape victims let fluid toxic sticky thoughts into their sweet heads when they all just wanted to lay down and sleep, fill their heads with Yggdrasil and the flooding purge that came with.

Maybe Bruno was a woman and maybe Bruno was a man. He felt as if he was smoked cheese or roast beef left out over night, processed through time and exposed.

    This is the first of a project where I write while under the influence. I want to see how substances affect my writing and storytelling, or if my writing is coherent at all.

    While writing this story, I was drunk.

    Brutal and loose. It feels like a head trip, and it does definitely feel like there was some substance involved. There is some good imagery, so I guess that is a success for the experiment.

    Thank you for the feedback! I don’t know when the rest of the project will be continued as I’m rarely under the influence, but I look forward to continuing.

    Good God, I only every write while under the influence! (Of course, I exagerate for comic effect. Slightly).

    That aside, this is definitely odd. One can read it through again and again and draw all kinds of different meanings from it – or none at all. It could have been generated by a machine, or alternatively, some sophisticated cut-up technique. But, you are clearly still in possession of your full skills as a writer even while drunk, as this is full of arresting imagery and well-turned phrases. Also, I note, no spelling errors or typos: did you proof this while sober, or are you simply infallible when it comes to such potential errors – even when drunk?

    Thank you for the kind words, they are appreciated. I did not edit while sober, just pressed the submit button, finished my whiskey, and went to bed!
