  1. Manifestos are merely publicity grabs for megalomaniacs. Real monsters bury their ardent passions like a dog buries bones in the backyard. Each morsel is a twisted appetizer to be dug up for appreciation, savored and then suppressed until the need arises, once again.

    Esau’s “Anthem to Atheism” was no exception. My brother’s negative attitude towards sacred laws was reflected in his bigamy, Antisemitism and attachments to Communism.

    While he paraded around like a band at a ball game, I was contemplating how to skewer him with the sword of righteousness. I figured I would expose him at one of the church baking contests next month.

    The band — made up of a light breeze, the movement of the leaves in the trees, the babble of the brook, and the bird’s chattering – played the anthem of summertime. The appetizers, one of them created with last year’s winning baking contests recipe Isabella’s sister had created, were set out on the edge of the blanket. Joel looked over at Isabella.

    “You still melt my heart, my love,” he said to her as he drank in her long tan legs, all the way down to her freshly manicured toenails.

    He picked a strawberry up out of the bowl that was within arms reach. He hesitated only to swipe the tip of the red fruit through the whipped topping, then it was over to her lips. Joel teasingly drug the tip of the strawberry along her lips.

    “This field and stream would make a marvelous backyard,” he said to his closed eyed femme fatale. There would need to be no fences nor wall to keep it private. I could take you here without being interrupted.”

    She parted her lips and took a hold of the strawberry with her teeth. His groin tightened. She bit the fruit taking a large piece of it into her mouth. He watched with ardent appreciation of her.

    She slowly opened her eyes to find him mesmerized. She raised her torso, coming up to lean on her elbows.

    “Well, maybe we should test out that theory,” she said with a smile, “since it seems we both have attachments to this rendezvous.”

    Sitting up fully now, she reached for a strawberry and the goblet of wine. She submerged the strawberry in the champagne. He noticed her fingers went below the surface as well. With her free hand she brought the glass with the strawberry.

    Once both hands centered about her body she pulled the strawberry out of the glass, fingers dripping with effervescent intoxicant. She brought the fruit up to his lips, but before he could get a bit she turned her hand and put the fruit up to her own lips. His mouth quickly followed. Now they both hand a hold of the strawberry. Their lips touched. Her fingers lingered between them. His tongue sought to taste the liquid dripping from her fingers. He bit. He chewed, which was hard to do with the smile that was growing on his face.

    He swallowed.

    “With this kind of an attitude I will not desire to go to a ball game anymore,” he said as he reached for the glass.
