Gothic Ghost Story

A 52-year-old librarian and her
15-year-old metalhead boyfriend
who ignites an electrifying passion
within her and who, unbeknownst to
her, is actually her half-brother
are forced by extraordinary
circumstances to kill or be killed
They panhandle, hitch rides, and
crash with total strangers
Generally, in such stories, the person
grows and becomes a good person
but this is no gothic ghost story
When the first reports surface of
the discovery of four skeletons
wrapped in burlap he walks out
of a mental hospital and into
the path of an oncoming train
Her demise in the electric chair is
prefigured by her abusive seduction
of prostitutes who advertised on Craigslist
