A Need

by Daniel Gallik “Nothing will ache in my world.” Jessie was looking at the massive ice cycles hanging from her roof. A two story duplex. They were touching the snow on the ground. Jessie had gotten fired. Her boss, “something about the poor economy, the business cycles, my boss and his moods.” Jessie was taking a walk. Kent, OH was looking gray and grim. Mike had left last week. Something like, “I have other territories to conquer.” Her mom was still an asshole. Her dad was still dead. “I think your Dad just wore out. Don’t worry honey.” Then, Jess saw this guy wearing an Ipod, on Water St. singing out loud, “Your love is all you breathe!”
