About the title:
This painting depicts a young woman cautious, intrigued and excited seconds before she exchanges her first words with an attractive stranger.

Cool Defiance:

Clubbing on a Thursday night is dedication to the scene.
Pulsing music, cutting edge fashion, faces cool, mind in trace.
She has seen him before, watching her dance but he never comes over just slants there and stares

" There is something different about that guy..."
Slightly scared she slinks outside.
Seconds later he appears through the door, glancing both ways she is leaning against the wall.
In a cool defiant pose her heart skips a beat, all shields up seconds before they meet...

Story  __________________________
Rain is coming down on the streets, gold, green and red flash in the intersections.
LD is done with this brown trout chasing her like a fishing lure.

" I don't know how many times I need to tell you to back off  GreyGrave !" LD warns him.
 " For the 69th time...BACK OFF !"

GrayGrave's deaf eyes roll from the asphalt to her face, watching her press a slim cigarette between her lips.

She leans up against the wet, multi-colored brick wall in a poetic kind of way, you know when you grope for Luna. 



I had this thought in the shower as piping hot water was running down my back, what if the earth invented and evolved human kind to build the planet in to a sentient being with concrete, glass and iron as armor against stray asteroids.

Now picture a story based on this premise as a future religion where the desecration of nature is the goal. The belief is that every inch of the earth should be covered in asphalt buildings, concrete steal and glass. Biohumans are obsolete since the depth of their knowledge has reached a bottom point.

The earth is the real being not it's inhabitants.
