I dig this. I like your description of picking up the keys with your toes. Also dig the way you described leaving the scale unresolved. Smiley
Descriptive, and I could feel it.

This time I broke the rules. So, first is the 10 minute object writing. Second is the edit. Shame on me. Okay, now the goods:

Key

A flutter clockwise and the egg broke. Heirlooms glittered and perfumed the edges of my sight. Long lost beacons of crumbling lives stretched their wings like ghosts yawning their way out of hibernation. I eyed my brother from the horizon of my cheek and puffed my lips into satisfactionís healthiest chest thump. Thumbs tucked under the dull lid and woke our treasureís insides. Exposed and flying. We dressed our lips in spit and cradled the cards up into the modern air. Faces packed with intent brooding under ball caps

---(the edit)--
A flutter clockwise, and the egg broke. I froze. Against the fringe blade of my vision, heirlooms whispered the perfume of cigarettes. A resurrection from historyís neglected innings. Dead menís chew coughing Grandpaís boyhood stories through the broken seal of leathered memories. Ghosts yawning our way. I eyed my brother, lips puffed and toasting our pride. Thumbs lugged the lid wide, and my eyes stole a base. With a tongue dusting the dry off my lips, I clutched the glove.

Reds, greens, and purples bubbled up around his marbled eyes. A world trailing horned music across the sidewalks and trampled grass-mud paths where crowds raced to and fro like the breeze on its way everywhere. Hot salted breads soaked his nose from everywhere, and giants loomed on stick legs lumbering through the clouds with balloons. Up across the expanse of fabric was a red top-hatted man descending from his perch in the clouds. Extending a manís arm to hand the boy blue inflated rubber twisted into a horse. The boyís heart, like a leaf to the tide, swept into the magic and soon swirling like ice cream on rides that shot like dragons into lights both brilliant and delightful. Lost in the foam of

The children of a delivery arrive nestled into place in packing peanut arms. I swim through those arms to scoop them up. Two books, glossy and resolute between my fingers. Daylight glinting from the bindings' edges. I plummet backward into pillows and clouds and spread their wings, displaying colorful underbellies of comic drawn boxes. My lips jump back behind my teeth. My imagination stretches an arm into the page and pulls me through to the other side. A world of storm cloud mysteries, eyelash fluttering demise, and tides of hard liquor rising and falling against protagonistic shores. A siren flares from the periphery like a seagull near-missing my ear. "TOMMY, did you clean your room!"

I plummet like a shot bird toward the water. I halt just above the crumpling water, wings battering the air with silent calm. Here is a microscopic world for me to devour. Larvae. Mosquitos. Like a dandelion bomb gone off in every direction, something edible floats for me. And, the expert acrobat, I zip forward, down, to and fro. A mosquito has its eyes on a pillowy dog splayed in the molasses mud with tongue dumped out the side of its mouth. I hover in the shadow of a weed and lock on. Bullet like the thundering dead and capture its poor, delicious, legged self. I am the consumer. Devourer. And around I spin to

Tears shot across the sky of her cheek, streaming tails glittering in the wake. Crashing into the clouds. The crumpled lotion. A soaking atmosphere guarding the floor. Her eyebrows hunker down. The universe shivers at her shoulders and a God hurls more stars from her eyes. Drowning planets orbit up and look toward the casket. A shadowy wood with a man, now clouded through oil canvas vision. Up he faces. She grabs another atmosphere from her bag and with a hard rattle dislodges asteroids careening against the walls of her nose. The expedition echoes the hall.

so vivid!
"an enchantment of this sort"
"just enough light for you and your partner to hone in on each others conversation"
"colored marker and pulled straight out from an Art teachers 'to do' board"
"eyebrow flares"

Yeah! I dig this!

A warm loverís molten lips slip into mine. A sauna of bittersweet breath over my eyes, cool and sunken. Earthy palms bless sunlight against my face. I stretch and unfold eyelids clinging to the sandmanís cliffs. The world pours sunlight into view. Splashing the rhythm of sky and ground against the window. Dynamite waiting to break my soul open. Caves untouched. Gold and potential. Silver and adventure. My chair harrumphs defiantly to the leaning and crashing of my feet to the floor. For the door. To the patio. Concrete leaves browning like cri

The oak frame towers and broods with gold gleaming at its belt. A keyhole buckle sparking possibility and mystery, beckoning your right hand. Trembling like leaves ravished from trees you sweep an arm through cinnamon air and hurtle to a click. Time clings to the suspense. Your breath curls into a ready fist and the song of movement swings slowly open. Light unfolds. It trails the heavy

He exposes his lips to a desert drip. A searing sun of flavor rolls in after a yawn. Slippers wiggle over carpet and ice grips the windows. Skeleton trees squirm against blues-whinny wind like drunks at a jazz bar leaning towards the floor. He buries into a chair. Eyes lounging low. Scanning the steam and nothing beyond. Heat growls from a vent and foams into the room to usher him to slumberís gates. A trap meant to share his coffee with his lap. And it works pretty good, thinks his pajamas.

Good, solid sense-bound writing!
