Bear stumbled through Roxbury intoxicated by his own grief, hoping desperately that somebody would say something. The right thing, the wrong thing. It didn’t matter. As long as it was in his direction. Just once. So he could unfurl the thick ball of aggression that burned low in his stomach like a painful tumor. He wanted Joe to step up, to talk out of line so he could rip into his body with nails and fists and teeth. He wanted one of those drunk old heads to call him a whiteboy so he could spit a loogie and send a knee deep into his pockmarked face. He wanted a two-buck-hooker that slithered in the dark recesses of Dudley Square to offer him a blowjob in the alleyway so he could kick her in the pussy and leave her crying in a pile of steaming trash.

But nobody said a word, like some unspoken contract, as Bear trembled in a direction he couldn’t quite determine, his vision blurred by the anger in his body that vibrated like a tuning fork.

The rows of old apartments that lined Cedar Street loomed over the chunky sidewalk, casting long shadows that bent over the road like ghosts watching protectively over Roxbury, over the empty streets where not even the apartments were occupied, the shades drawn with no trace of the wailing soul music that usually blared from behind the shut windows.

Bear trudged ahead in silence up Highland where a muscular dog crouched low and growled behind a flimsy chain-link fence, its ice gray eyes fixed upon Bear, who stopped to let the beast get a full view.

“Come get me,” Bear said.

The dog froze.

“Go on,” Bear said. “Attack.”

The dog growled louder, its gray coat flexing as its body tightened like a bow.

Bear moved closer to the fence and the dog flinched. “C’mon, you fuck.”

The dog froze again, her almond shaped eyes widening bigger than quarters.

Bear picked up a rock by his feet and held it over his head. “Let’s go, dog.”

The dog bent back on her hind legs, flexing, so her body became one solid knot of muscle. She let out a bark that sounded more like a human battle cry.

Bear kept the rock hanging over his head. The dog, as if she could sense the boy’s irrational violence — a rage that turned his body into a spiked coat of armor — backed up on her hind legs and disappeared into the shadows of her owner’s yard.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  19. sling tv says:

    I’ve learn several good stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking for revisiting.
    I surprise how so much effort you place to make this sort of magnificent
    informative web site.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and
    let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that
    not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something relating to this.

    A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my
    site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great
    in Opera. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my
    own blog and was curious what all is required to
    get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100%
    sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
