Wrecking Team FortressSo how does this game-jumping business work? Ralph had it hard enough getting in and out of his own game - after that kerfuffle getting out of Pac-Man, he didn't know if he wanted to risk getting into a game he really had no business in. Besides, wouldn't he stick out like a missingno? Turbo obviously didn't fit in with Roadblaster, so what chance did the cartoony hillbilly Ralph have sneaking into some futuristic shooter? And what other games gave out medals?
Ralph's thoughts were interrupted by a very loud conversation between two loudmouthed Bostonians.
"Hey hey, didja hear the news? Big patch came out last week - backpack's double-size now!"
"Yeah, yeah, yeah! Now I got somewheres to throw all my hats 'n' bats!"
"Not to mention dat stupid name-tag you keep wearing. Nobody's gonna bow down to you just 'cause you started playing a few years back."
"Step off, ya crap! It ain't no Gentle Manne's Service Medal but I'll take what I can get!"
"Just keep tellin' yerself that, chucklenuts.
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
