Falconer Forever [Jun. 3rd, 2005|02:54 pm]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry
Falconer, the great consulting detective, arose from his forensic
contemplation. His raptor's profile was stark against the blood-spattered
wall.

"You will arrest this boy's mother now," he intoned to the attending police
officer.

The boy, naked and swabbing at the tiny cuts under his testicles with a wad
of grey toilet tissue, reacted badly. "Not Mummy! Not my Mummy!"

"Indeed," Falconer observed, "your police scientists will confirm that the
placenta currently filling the gullet of the dead girl strapped to the bed
once shared a womb with this boy. It has been cleverly preserved by a
master criminal for precisely this purpose -- choking the boy's girlfriend
to death."

"My Mummy is not a master criminal!" the boy protested.

"I see," Falconer said, "that you still rub that pinprick on your arm.
Your girlfriend has a matching mark. I submit that your mother entered the
house while you were engaged in coitus with the young lady. She assaulted
you both with a hypodermic syringe with a substance that made you both
more...pliant. She was restrained, and the placenta shoved into her mouth.
She choked to death while your mother placed you in that chair and
rrrrutted with you. Riding you so hard, in fact, that blood vessels under
your scrotum burst against repeated violent contact with the edge of the
chair."

Falconer drew himself up to his full height and loomed over the weeping
boy. "I further deduce that she forced you to ejaculate into a plastic
dripfeed bag such as is found in medical establishments, later to introduce
your vigorous sperm into her bloodstream for the purpose of youth
preservation. I suspect she bred you specifically for sexual entertainment
and, in her twisted mind, the production of age-retarding chemicals. The
girl was killed as instruction and punishment: you belong only to Mummy."

"And the ligatures on his thighs?" the police officer asked. "Was he
restrained also?"

"Not as such," smiled Falconer. "Those livid lines come from his mother's
apron strings."

Falconer lit a match off the boy's penis, making him yelp, and ignited The
Cigarette Of Victory.

"I go now to obtain a schoolboy's uniform and some kind of cricket box to
protect my precious scrotal treasures, thence to meet your very interesting
mother. Exeunt."

So, I've got to ask. Does Falconer have anything to do with your daughter's fondness for birds of prey?

There was a film about Peter Whitehead some years back called THE FALCONER...

I'm surprised Falconer didn't sample the boy's vigorous sperm for "research".

Your writing rivets a person. It's like pulling back a curtain to reveal a world more horrific than they could possibly imagine and yet, which they instantly recognize. I applaud you, as always, for accomplishing what so few can, which is to display what is common in a way that is new.

If you know another contemporary writer who can write like this, who doesn't have a Geocities account into which he keys his spiraled notebook, please, do toss me a name. Otherwise, I'm going to reread your latest mind fruit. Your writing is the healthiest addiction I've ever had.

Well, good for the body, candy for the mind, poison for the soul as it may be. : )

Ah, the return of Falconer - not that he ever really left. Or did he?

In any event, I enjoyed reading this - thanks!

I read these and look for the truth, the hook -it's more something that I feel, a gut thing. Theres something here, but I'm not quite sure what you'd call it, beyond truth. Truth of what? Life? Human nature? Maybe.

I always liked naturalistic fiction. Don't know if this is strictly speaking naturalistic, but it's got that grit and unflinching eye, toward the characters as well as the situation in which they find themselves.

Good stuff.

Aw, big deal. This sort of thing goes on in Kentucky all the time.

Oops, I've perpetuated a stereotype, haven't I?

As Snagglepuss Falconer would say, "Exeunt, stage left, even...!"

Sad thing is that if this happened in reality, I woudn't be suprised.

I find backstories to be excuses for bad behavior. I don't want an excuse.

Personally, I'd be happy if I died never knowing.

"my precious scrotal treasures"

You have cursed my circle of friends, for this phrase will be peppering my speech from now until doomsday (which by my calculations will be in about three weeks...if I did the math correctly).
