A man exists as a tiger

A man exists as a tiger

A Story by sera bela
"

A conversation between two people. Separated between bold/italic and Plain text.

"

The only man I have ever seen was walking down the street the other day


What do you mean only? I am a man.


Maybe in the shallowest sense of the term are you considered a man.


Whatever do you mean?


Whatever do I mean? What about what I don’t mean?


You don’t mean a lot.

A LOT. I mean a lot. I don’t mean nothing.


Nothing within itself is something.


Unless it’s nothing


Well. Nothing is something.


No nothing is the opposite of something


Like right and left?


Day or night.


Black or white?


Yes all of those things it means.


It means? I thought you mean a lot.


No No. you have it all wrong. Its about what I don’t mean.


Oh yes. I am a man. Is that what you mean?


Yes.


Then what do you not mean?


I don’t mean to say that you are a woman by denying the fact you are a man.


I have a man’s genital part, don’t I?


I suppose. I never checked.


You did that one time.


No


Yes, remember with the bottle of glue and….


Maybe once I did.


Yes maybe


Possibly


Yes


What I also don’t mean to say is that you are a coward


Whoever brought up the subject of cowardice?


Well. I thought it was obviously implied with the fact that you are not a man.


But you are not insinuating I am a WOAH-man? Are you?


Of course I am not. I would never hint or suggest such a trivial argument. All that I am saying is that you may be an opposite of a man.


Which is a woman?


No, not all the time. I would have to say that the opposite of a man is a tiger?


Why a tiger? Why not a fish?


Fine. A fish. Actually that does make more sense. They swim in water. They have fins. They eat s**t.


You eat s**t.


I do not.


Yes you do.


When?


That hot dog last night.


That is NOT s**t.


Yes yes. It is.


How do you figure?


It is made with awful ingredients.


Which qualifies it for s**t?


Yes. Well…maybe.


Possibly


Occasionally


The world is full of s**t


You say that with a soft tone


Yes yes I do


Is it because the world is full of soft s**t?


No no. Most of it is hard.


Most?


Yes


Not all?


I have no idea if all of it is hard. I never checked and don’t plan to.


What do you think they would assume if they heard you?


Heard me what?


Talking to yourself?


I don’t….i don’t ….i do


Don’t stutter it’s unattractive.


You stutter too…


What did you say?


I SAID. You STUTTER too.


Yes. Yes I do maybe. But that is because you make me.


I do not.


Yes yes you do.


You are a man.


That is not an insulting comment you know


You are a soft s**t tiger fish man


*chuckle* and exactly what does that make you?


Nothing, makes me absolutely nothing.


When you flew last night? Were you nothing?


I have never felt so alive.


Too bad you didn’t land on your feet like a cat-bird…I told you that there was no possible way you could be a cat bird.


Stop it.


Stop what?


Talking. You are being too loud people are looking at us.


At you. They are looking at you. It is impossible for them to be looking at me.


No. that’s not true. Not even a bit.


Maybe a tiny smidgen true.


Yes maybe.


Possibly


True.


Hmmm…


I am going to kill you.


No. no you are not.

Yes. Yes I am.


When?


I haven’t the faintest Idea when or how. I just know I will.


When I stop howling? Is that when?


Yes yes. Then. Please stop whispering in my ear. It tickles.


You are s**t.


Stop.


Soft s**t, hard s**t.


No please


It doesn’t make a difference.


STOP.


S**T. S**t S**T. You can’t get rid of me.


Yes….yes…yes…..i will. I can…I MUST


I am soaked in your body. I am intertwined in your sketletal structure.


I will destroy you.


I am embedded in your mind.


Please?


Yes.


They are looking.


Stop it.


Stop what?


Stop talking to yourself.


I am not talking to..


Yes. Yes you are. I Don’t exist.


Hmmm….


Close your eyes and enjoy the burning liquid which enters your tight veins.


I can’t


Yes. Yes. Listen to me.


Why?


Cause I am you.


….yes. You are.


Just breathe and enter happiness.


Maybe one day I will be happy


You will be carefree after this. Don’t worry


I will not worry

Go to sleep


I will sleep


And you will wake with joyous mind


Possibly.


Maybe

Well I have to say.. this was quite the original read. I can't give you any technical advice as I'm rather new any way.. but I can say that once I started reading.. well.. your mind.. I could not stop. I'm glad you ended it because chances are.. I'd still be reading. I love originality. So no matter what you write.. keep true to yourself and write what you feel. Write what is within you. I truly enjoyed having you share twice your thoughts with me. Thank you so much!

Wow! So different to anything I've read in a long time...ambitious form/structure but I think it works :)

Definitely the most original piece I've seen on this site.
And so easy to read, i was lost in the inner dialogue almost immediately.
Looking forward to reading more of your work.
