The Canvass

 

When your girlfriend is going down on you, you must be very quiet.  Especially when youre on her parents living room sofa, and her mother is in the next room reading.  You must stare at the textured ceiling and count the cracks in the paint.  It will help you listen for her mothers footsteps, should she come running.

Keep your hands on your girlfriends breasts and remain as excited as possible.  This needs to be over quickly, before her mother finishes her chapter.  Thats what your girlfriend whispered into your ear, anyway.  Back before she unzipped your pants and took you into her mouth.

You will bite your lower lip until it bleeds, but you wont notice until youve wiped the happy tears away from your eyes with the throw pillow and found blood on the gray fabric.

The flicker of a page turning, the creak of a rocking chair settling.  All these sounds make you nervous as well as excited

The kitchen table is so close, your girlfriends mother casts a shadow onto the hardwood floor, rocking back and forth as she reads.

Your girlfriend knows how quickly this must come to an end, and she slips a finger inside your asshole to prove it.  The tip rubs against your prostate, making you thicker, making you bite your lower lip harder. Your girlfriend feels you growing inside her mouth and shoves her face into your lap with more force.  Her breathing escapes in warm huffs that warm the insides of your thighs. It tickles your balls, and its amazing, but not as amazing as the eruption building up throughout your body.

Your toes curl.  You bite your lip until blood oozes from your mouth, dripping from your chin and onto your bare chest.  You grab the back of your girlfriends head to make sure she takes everything you got, and then her muffled breathing becomes more frantic.

Your arms tighten against your girlfriends struggle for air, but your need for release is far more important than her need for air.  Then you learn she wasnt having trouble breathing at all.  Her problems are much worse than that.

You explode inside her mouth.  The eruption forces your hands to your mouth, stifling the screams that helplessly squeal from your throat, but youre not quick enough, and your girlfriend  lifts her head just in time to vomit on your lap.  It erupts with the same force as your semen, which rises up to meet her bile, combining into a liquid of purged love.  It all falls down onto your stomach, between your legs and onto the couch cushion where it weasels its way into your ass crack.

This is when your girlfriend removes her finger from your prostate and places it onto your chest, smearing your own shit onto your nipples, where it merges with your blood, turning your body into a canvass of gore.

Its too late to do anything now, so you stare at the doorway, waiting for her mother to enter the room.  When she does, the horrified expression on her face pleases you, because she was the one you were thinking about the entire time you were inside her daughters mouth.  You pretended her breasts were in your hands, her finger was in your asshole, and you cant help but smile at her.

This will be the last time you ever see her, so you burn her disgusted face into you memory, where it will remain, forever.

The Other White Meat – R. K. Gemienhardt

 

    Tammy sat at the kitchen table staring down at the engagement ring on her finger, nervously twisting it back and forth, anything to avoid giving her boyfriend the answer he was waiting for.

    “C’mon, you said you would do anything for me,” Bob urged.

    “I know I did, honey…” Tammy paused to collect her thoughts before continuing. “It’s just that… why have I never heard of this before?”

    “It’s something new here in the States, but it’s huge over in Japan,” Bob lied, knowing he was close to getting her into the oven.

    “I don’t know, it just sounds so dangerous,” Tammy wavered.

    Bob scooted his chair over next to Tammy, putting his arm around her shoulder. She instinctively rested her head on his chest. He gently stroked her hair as he whispered into her ear, “Do you really think I would ask you to do this if I didn’t think it was safe? I’ll be right on the other side of the door.”

    “I’m not sure,” Tammy said, lifting her head from his chest to look him in the eye. “What difference does it make if I agree to it? There’s no way I could fit inside an oven anyway”.

    Bob stood and walked across the kitchen extending his arms out like a game show host. “Maybe a regular sized oven, but as you can see here this is an industrial grade oven. Take the top racks out you’ll be able to fit inside comfortably. I got in there myself this morning just to make sure.”

    Tammy stared at the oven, really seeing it for the first time. “Why do you have an industrial grade oven anyway? In all the time I’ve known you I’ve never seen you cook a damn thing,” Tammy paused, tears filling her eyes. “Oh my God, you got this oven just for this kink. How many other girls have you done this with?”

    Bob stuck his hands out in a placating gesture. “Calm down, I’ve never done this before. I just read about it online a couple of days ago and thought it would be fun. And the oven is from my dad’s restaurant. He gave it to me when he upgraded his appliances. You know that.”

    “I know, you’re right,” Tammy sighed, a mischievous grin slowly appearing on her face as she peeled off her clothes.

    “I can’t believe I’m letting you talk me into this,” Tammy said, as Bob guided her towards the oven before she changed her mind.

    Tammy let out a nervous giggle as she climbed into the oven. She reached her arm out to prevent Bob from shutting the door. “You’re going to let me out of here immediately when I bang on the door, right?” Tammy asked.

    “Absolutely,” Bob replied. “I’ll be right on the other side watching through the glass. This is going to be so hot.” He paused for a second then winked, “no pun intended.”

    Tammy pulled her arm back into the oven and Bob shut the door. Tammy summoned up her courage and gave her fiancé a thumbs up. Bob turned the temperature gauge to 250 degrees and pressed his face to the glass.

    Beads of sweat instantly broke out all over Tammy’s body. Her heart raced as the oven racks blistered the skin on her butt and soles of her feet. Tammy imagined the heat would be gradual, something akin to a sauna. She wasn’t prepared for the reality of the situation and began to hyperventilate, frantically banging on the interior of the oven door. Bob was true to his word and quickly opened the door and pulled her out. He carried her across the kitchen and laid her down on the table. He immediately placed his face between her legs and began to lick her pussy juices mixed with the salty sweat from her time in the oven. Tammy’s body trembled as orgasms racked her body one after another, each one more intense than the last.     

 

    Bob turned off the oven and carried his spent girlfriend to the bedroom. He applied soothing lotion to her burns and cuddled up next to her as they both drifted off to sleep.

    Bob awoke the next morning to find Tammy’s side of the bed empty. He cursed himself for pushing her into it too soon. Then he noticed a note on the nightstand that read; Last night was amazing. I want to do it again tonight. Love Tammy.    

    

    Bob couldn’t concentrate at work. He was torn. It was a huge turn on that she would do that for him and she obviously enjoyed it. He just couldn’t help feeling unfulfilled. He tried to push it to the back of his mind as he struggled through the work day.

 

    Bob walked into his apartment to find rose petals scattered on the floor leading from the front door all the way down the hall. He followed the trail into the kitchen to find that they led to the oven door. Tammy was already naked and waiting inside.

    Bob knelt in front of the glass door. Tears suddenly welling in his eyes and trickling down his cheeks, “You were right, I have done this before. I actually thought it would be different with you because I love you so much. I really did. I was hoping I could be content just drinking you. But I’ve been thinking about it all day and it just isn’t enough for me,” Bob said, as he engaged the lock on the oven door and set it to broil. Tammy’s screams echoed off the oven walls as she pounded on the door. Bob placed his face up to the glass and said “I’m sorry, but you know what they say; a man’s gotta eat.”

[NSFW] Fly Blown – Kenneth Whitfield

 

She has an earthy smell about her. Musky. I chalk it up to her being on the dance floor so much. Hot and sweaty, honky tonking, showing off her ample assets in a tight half-shirt with even tighter Daisy Duke cutoffs. She’s pretty, long dark hair, heavily made up brown eyes, full pouty lips and a seductive smile. Infectious laugh. But coming off a bit desperate.

I wave away a fly buzzing at my head as I watch her.

Maybe she’s horny. Maybe she’s trying to make someone jealous. Or maybe she’s just drunk. Probably a combination of all three. I watch as she shakes it all alone on the dance floor, appreciative men cheering her on; their girlfriends giving her the stink eye.

The annoying fly lands on my table. He rubs his little hands together happily, and then starts lapping at the ring left from my mug. I smile and tip my beer to him as I go back to gazing at her.

It’s early, the bar not too crowded yet. Whenever a man approaches her she smiles and shakes her head side to side, no no, not missing a beat. She comes back to my table between dances, drinking my Jack and beer chaser, leaning in closer and closer, whisper/yelling in my ear over the jukebox. Her breath a bit rank, telling me how she just loves to dance and wishes I’d join her. Rubbing her bare underboobs against my arm.

Nice.

The fly drinking from the beer ring on the table has been joined by some friends. They scatter when she visits, but settle quickly when she hits the dance floor again, not willing to give up the free beer. I chuckle, ordering another.

I’m flattered by her attention, her sour breath and body odor accepted. But I’ve seen this scenario before. I believe she’s just looking to start something, to prove something. I don’t know why she has latched onto me, maybe because I’m quiet and not drooling all over her like the other guys. Maybe because I’m alone. Most likely because she’s seen the wad of cash I’ve been peeling bills off when the waitress brings me a drink. (Today was payday.) I really don’t know, but I do think I know where this is probably heading.

The flies are having their own little party on my table, about five of them now lapping at the spilled beer, lined up side by side jostling each other. Belly up to the bar boys.

As the night grows on and the bar gets more crowded, she gets rowdier. As do the cheering men. I guess it won’t be long before that belly revealing shirt is above her boobs, and her shorts will have crept up to become denim thongs.

I give it serious consideration, and then decide I’m just not up to playing any games tonight. I chuckle again, reminded of that Skynyrd song Gimme Three Steps. One lyric in particular from the live version: “Lord I ain’t going to fighting over this cunt.” I throw a twenty on the table to finish covering my, (well, mostly her), tab, scattering the flies. I smile and nod at her shaking on the dance floor as I head out the back door.

She catches up with me just as I am opening my truck door. Tugs on my arm gently and asks if I can take her home. I turn and look. She cocks her head and smiles broadly. I look over her shoulder and don’t see anybody coming out the door after her. Looks like she’s slipped away and is serious about spending time with me. No games. I stand aside and wave her in, her aroma wafting over me as she climbs in.

She slides over just enough to let me behind the steering wheel. Her left thigh is pressed up against my right. She laughs and jokes and uses her right hand to gesture all about as she talks. Her left hand she keeps on my leg, rubbing gently. Her smell is stronger in the confines of the truck. It’s a warm evening, so I discreetly roll down my window.

She likes to lean in close as she talks. Her breath is cigarettes and beer and something a little riper. A rotten sweetness, like fruit going bad.

She points to a button I have pinned to the passenger sun visor. It has a picture of a grinning possum hanging by its tail from a branch and says “Eat More Possum”. She laughs, saying at first glance she thought it said “Eat More Pussy”. I smile. That’s the joke, I say.

She rubs my leg and squirms her hips a bit, smiling back at me.

She lives in a trailer park about a mile from the bar. Tells me she walks back and forth all the time. (I bet she gets rides back more often than not.) The park is pretty big and looks like it’s been around a while. Lots of old trailers lined up almost on top of each other, most with their paint fading and peeling. I see many cars in tiny yards in various stages of decomposition – hoods up, engines out, tires missing. Trash cans overflow in driveways. Indoor furniture – easy chairs, tables and sofas – is outdoors on porches and in yards.

Her trailer is gray with pink trim. I guess it was black with red trim at one time. There’s a sagging little wooden five foot square porch at the front door with rusted steel stairs leading up to it. A bare, fly specked 100 watt bulb is screwed into a grimy porcelain light socket base attached to the porch ceiling. A couple of sticky brown fly strips are hanging down, twisting in the warm breeze, each covered with dozens of tiny black bodies.

She heads up on the porch, digging the key out from the back pocket of her painted on shorts. I hang back, telling her I need to pay the water bill. She smiles playfully as she opens the door, telling me to let her know if I need any help. I smile back, saying yeah, the doctor told me not to be lifting anything heavy. I hear her laughing as I turn and take a couple of steps back through her over-flowing trash cans.

I have just gotten a good stream going when the breeze shifts and a smell makes me gag and almost piss on myself. A smell of rotted meat and decay. I finish quick, tucking myself back in. Morbid curiosity makes me look. I poke around the split open black trash bags with the toe of my boot. I flip one shredded bag over, and lying under it is a possum. Its dull gray eyes look up at me, lips pulled back in a grin showing sharp little teeth. It’s deflated; gray fur all stiff and matted. There’s a clouted hole in its side and a mass of flies are swarming over it. I wave my boot over them and they buzz away, revealing a writhing mass of maggots feeding inside the possum. The flies settle quickly back down, refusing to abandon their offspring and free lunch. I hold my breath and back away, heading up to the porch. She’s holding the door open, and I dodge the fly strips as I go inside.

After the smell outside, the smell inside is very faint.

She points at my crotch saying I left the barn door open, and then goes to make us a couple drinks. I pull my zipper up, watching her root around in the piles of dirty dishes, disturbing a few flies, finally finding two red Solo cups. She gets a bottle of Jack from on top of the refrigerator and pours us both good stiff ones, adding a splash of hot flat coke from an almost empty liter bottle to each. No ice.

She hands me mine, and we both take deep drinks, looking at each other. I feel the warm flush coming over me as the liquor goes down. She rises to her tiptoes and kisses me, hard. Smashing our lips, pushing her tongue past my teeth, licking and then sucking. She pulls back, grins, motions with her head for me to follow. She heads down the little hallway to what I am sure is her bedroom.

I follow, watching her butt shaking, barely noticing the smell, taking another drink to wash away her aftertaste.

In her bedroom, the single window is open, the warm breeze bellowing threadbare curtains. The screen in the window is full of holes, and I see several flies crawling through. More are flitting about. Her bedroom is about as clean as her kitchen, and we add our clothes and underwear to the piles we step over getting to her unmade bed.

Lying next to her, she giggles throatily, taking me in her hand. I watch the curve of her breasts as I reach between her legs, gently stroking. My fingers touch large fleshy lips, swollen with excitement. As I reach between them, the incredible moistness sucks them in, four fingers disappearing up to the second knuckle. She moans, arching her back.

This sure ain’t her first rodeo.

When I pull my fingers out, I am struck by the smell. It’s cliché, but there is a heavy fish odor. She bucks, pulling me on top of her. The hand I had between her thighs is now by her head and I smell the funk on my fingers even stronger. She sucks feverishly on my neck, distracting me. And before I can think any more about the odor she grabs my butt with both hands and I am sliding inside of her. I think of Daisy Duke wearing cutoffs with black stockings and as I empty into her, I feel a burning sensation. I’ve experienced similar when ladies used spermicide. It’d get backed up and in some kind of backwash burn like hell. I didn’t see her slide any spermicide in, but I know ladies can be discreet about that. (Though she didn’t strike me as the discreet type.) I grit my teeth and roll off her, the sensation slowly fading.

She smokes a cigarette as I finish my Jack Daniels. After that, we don’t exactly snuggle, she just lays close alongside of me. Presently she falls asleep, and not long afterward I do too.

I awake needing to pee again and swatting at a couple of flies buzzing around my head. The room is ripe with the smell of sour sex. Her back is toward me now, her breathing slow and steady. Her firm buttocks outlined with bikini tan lies. I ease out of the bed, tip toe around dirty clothes disturbing more flies, and ease the bathroom door closed behind me.

Flipping on the light switch, there’s a hum and then one dirty fluorescent tube above the mirror flickers and provides dim light. The dingy full moon and yellowish area light showing through the little open window provide a bit more illumination. I look at myself in the mirror, raising my chin, shaking my head at the giant red hickey on my neck. Waving away more flies I step over to the toilet and relieve myself. The burning sensation is still present, though not as bad. And there is a prickling sensation, an itch all throughout my crotch. Both inside and out. Everything looks red and irritated and I wonder if she gave me a dose of the crabs. Never had them before so not sure what the symptoms are or how long they take to show. I make a mental note to see a doctor. After finishing, I open cabinets looking for a bath cloth to wash off with. Can’t find any and I don’t want to touch the used ones mixed in with dirty underwear in the overflowing hamper. Everything in there is damp and stained. I twist the hot faucet meaning to rinse using my hands, but the foul smelling brown water trickling out changes my mind. I’ll take a hot shower and scrub good when I get home.

Back in the bedroom, I ease about finding my clothes. I dress silently, watching her sleep. She is very pretty. Lying naked on her side in the ruffled bed, no covers, hair mussed, breathing so heavy it’s almost a snore. I smile, the itching in my groin and the sour smell now seem fair trade for having shared that body. I walk over to wake her and tell her good bye. We both knew what this was so there’s no reason to sneak away in the night. I’m not that much of a dick.

As I lean over the bed and reach for her shoulder, she rolls over. I back up as she moans. She raises both her arms over her head and smacks her lips sensually. I smile broader, looking at her sleeping, happy face. Her big breasts, flat nipples quivering with each breath. Her taut stomach with a belly button piercing, a diamond, (probably cubic zirconium), rising and falling slowly. Her slick pubic hair quivering.

She pulls one leg up at an angle, exposing herself. It looks like a butterflied, abused veal cutlet. A trickle of thin, white fluid leaks out from between those enlarged bruised lips. A couple of flies land in her curly hairs and walk about in the stickiness. Another couple land and work their way toward the pooling white wetness. The smell of fish and foul meat is strong. More flies land in her stiff and matted fur.

I look closer and see a small white worm emerge from inside her and fall into the milky fluid. Then another. And another. They coagulate; form a small knot, squirming over each other. More flies land and begin to cover her pubes as the maggots continue to cascade from within her. Goose bumps pop up on her pelvic region, spread up towards her stomach, appearing and disappearing as the flesh undulates with the roiling masses beneath. More and more flies land on her, appearing as a single black mass. She moans and shifts position slightly. The flies rise, but settle back down quickly, unwilling to abandon their meal and offspring. The smell of offal rises in the thick heavy air, causing me to retch silently.

I back away from her, swallowing my gag reflex. Ease my way out of the bedroom, shooing flies with one hand, pulling and tugging and scratching at my groin with the other. I stumble through the living room, snatching the front door open. Staggering across the porch, I become entangled in the fly strips, fighting their stickiness, yanking them from my face and head along with skin and scalp. I fall down the steps and hit the driveway hard, ripping my jeans, skinning both knees and the palms of my hands on the sharp gravel. Getting to my feet I run to my truck almost yanking the door off its hinges.

The truck starts and I back out of her little driveway, tires spinning as I put it in drive while still rolling backwards. Leaving the trailer park entrance with dust and gravel spraying behind me. Tires squealing I hit the pavement of the main road, rear end fish tailing as I floor it. By the time I pass the bar I am doing better than ninety.

All the while scratching and tugging at my burning groin with one hand while flies buzz around.

  I lie on the bed, in this room that never smells of sex, and rub one of the many surrounding rose petals between my fingers. These are sex organs too.  

    Looking down at my breasts, I feel the sex organs lying between them, and think of His. I close my eyes. Touch all of the places I think He will want first: lips, throat, breasts, thighs.

    Tick Tock.

    I strike a pose, many different ones. Which will He like the best? Which will cause Him to burn most with desire? This one. I think it’s this one.

    Tick Tock.

    He’s late. I trace the inside of my thigh, higher until I’m pushing into my garden. I ripped all the hair out today because I think that is what turns Him off. He doesn’t want a woman. He wants a girl; a child.

    Tick tock.

    My garden is dry, so I play. I want to be ready, and I have time to kill. If things don’t go according to plan, this may be the most fun I have.

    Tick tock.

    Still no noise. Only the stirring of something inside me. The breaking of the dam: honey.

    My body begs for fast—faster—but no. I am only to carry myself to the edge, not over. I build a perfect agony.

    Tick Tock.

    The front door slams. My body quivers with anticipation; I am ready.

    Footsteps pound the hardwood floor. I gasp, arch, and rest again, on this bed, in this sexless room. I slick my tongue across my lip.

    Tick Tock.

    The door opens. I moan. Husband enters, still in his work clothes. I wait, writhing and moaning, my desire still unquenched. He watches, expressionless. Why doesn’t He come to me? Is this not what every man wants? He tugs at the collar of His fatigues as if they are suddenly too tight. Three tours in Iraq, and He still loses composure at the sight of a naked woman. I smile.

    Unable to wait any longer, I crawl to the foot of the bed where He stands. I grab Him by the pants and pull Him to me. He is like a child too—scared and stiff in all the wrong places.

    I press against Him, and hope the gesture will give him confidence. Then I take His fingers and push them inside of me.  At first, I think He is going to try. He plays, half-heartedly. I moan, arch, and twist. Pretend He gives me pleasure when I was doing better myself. He needs encouragement.

    I look up at Him with smoldering eyes, hope His will do the same, but they are cold. He is elsewhere now, not with me. I bite His lip, hard, to bring Him back to me, and see something far worse than disinterest in His eyes: disdain. Why doesn’t He love me?

    He wriggles His hand free from my grasp and steps away. Fine. He doesn’t have to love me, but why won’t He fuck me? Is that not what men do?

    He walks to the bathroom and wipes my honey on a towel. Meticulous, like a surgeon, He washes His hands. To Him, I am a germ He can kill with soap and water. He leaves the room, me still hanging on the edge.

    Is it my breasts? I shove them into my back, but I can never make them disappear.

    How does one unbloom?

    I gaze at the photo of our niece at her eighth birthday party that He keeps beside the bed. Flat chested, gap-toothed, and freckled, she looks the kind of happy only a child can look, but not anymore.  

    Creak.

    The wooden staircase leading to the basement groans beneath His weight.

    Now, at ten, His niece is a frosted lily shivering in the darkness of our basement. Her endangered smile is Paper Mache.

    I smash the frame against the night table, and shatter glass like innocence.

    Girls dream of becoming women, of knowing our deeper shades of red, of riding our curves. They desire to be like us. It should not be the other way around.

    I look down at my woman’s body, and weep.

    Bastard.
