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 he’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 wasn’t a game anymore but a thing he did that dark winter. Before he turned it around in small, workable increments.
