I DIE
BY KEVIN HYDE
*
While walking down the street, casually swinging my arms and listening to music on my walkman, I am struck by a tendril of lightning. The headphones are charred into my skull, necessitating a closed-casket funeral. My family weeps; ex-girlfriends rend their hair and clothes, wondering why oh why they didnít stay with me. Sony buys the autopsy photos to demonstrate (in-house) the durability of their audio gear. 

When a bug of exotic size and ugliness flies into my eye, spreading pollen from some poisonous flora into my membranes. At night, when I am asleep, the flower somehow grows and blooms asexually, the roots imbedding themselves in my brain and the blossoms springing forth from my pupils. I am found like this. The bouquet is astounding. 

After opening a can of soda which was found to contain no liquid: a dead can. However, the can is left out overnight, releasing its invisible caffeine-absence gas into the ventilation system. Turns out that one part per million is lethal. I inhale ninety-two thousand separate parts. My brain congeals. My blood turns to pudding. I am quiche. 

In bed, surrounded and mourned by cats named after pre-Socratic philosophers. It is unexpected, and shocking.
