by Zebulon Huset


It was cloudy. Every day was overcast. He bought the rope and a pull up bar together, then chickened out. His new favorite game was to take a big hit then try to do ten pull ups before he had to exhale. When he came up with it he hoped heโ€™d force an aneurysm and finally die. Instead he toned his arms and core. Ten turned to twenty and when the leaves began budding outside of his window it wasnโ€™t a game anymore but a thing he did that dark winter. Before he turned it around in small, workable increments.
