WAR LOVER
 
WL can savor the sight of a young couple hand in hand by the eternal sea. Two different hearts brought together to be one. WL rejoiced in it like the explosive foam of the waves because the War Lover knows where and when she will be with her hero next. She will place flowers on the floor under his name on a wall, after a flash his body was blown to bits. The movement of armies, the massing of men and machines were of no interest to WL. That was done with quiet cooperation and concern
for one’
s comrades, only the sparks of loss caught his eye. The desperation, the keening, crying, wailing, the ripping of clothes and tearing of hair filled the void for WL. Only that could raise him from his stupor. He loved war and the decades of peace between major breakouts were a bore to WL. He wondered around hapless and half asleep. The winner for
War Lover’s
 attention was Russia at war with America and the surrounding states in the east. Troops at the border who could not endure the pain wave and civilians killed by being buried alive were of particular interest to him. He did not need a newspaper to tell him about the fighting. It was in front of him. Bernie, the Golden Adonis as he was known to the world was a mystery to WL and WL had no interest in mysteries. The world had to be laid out, splayed as it were for the War Lover to absorb. Oddly as
 
discerning as he was of the lives with their hearts ripped out, Bernie

strands of pain and fear wove no fabric in the War Lover
s mind. The struggle of east against west had gone on for so long it was taken as a natural condition and on the checkered map of the east it was considered obligatory for small neighbors to fight and hate each other, like the big nations. Small but costly wars in the east then occupied people during the drawn out war with the west. That smell in the air and a vague taste sensation in the mouth alerted the War Lover. It was familiar and from his ancient youth. He pushed away from his small private table and with others stood in the street, frozen by the spectacle growing before the Kremlin. It was the outline of a man towering against the sky and glowing like the sun. Others on the street shielded their eyes or ran to hide. Leaving his pyramid after 40 years did not raise an eyebrow on the War Lover but Bernie
’s
sudden appearance under the vast dome over Moscow woke him immediately. War Lover joined the crowd, it roused him, the excitement of young men and boys driven by the beating drums to put on a uniform to go forth to kill and die just like days of old when war was still something special and not like today when it has been reduced to drudgery.

glowing form the local Muscovites immediately recognized him and attacked by throwing trash at him. Police raced to the square to push the people back and encircled Bernie. Riots broke out in attempts to attack the glowing forty foot tall form but were short lived as his presence still had the effect of making everyone depressed and filled with suicidal thoughts. The Russians could not go near despite his putting every effort into containing such an effect on people. That was his natural personality before he was changed by the energy of psy waves; he was a depressing person to be around. War Lover staggered away from his posh restaurant to observe the sight. Police in riot gear after pushing away the citizens also disappeared from the streets. The mayor and a few city officials soon appeared in a small corner of the Kremlin square and made themselves known with translators in tow and all dressed in the special protective suits from early in the war. Bernie shrank as they approached and opened a kit that was previously out of sight; from it he donned a special garment, a floor length robe to cover his human form which in shrinking became strange and grotesque. His glow could only be seen as light beamed out the sleeves and from around folds in the hood of the robe. In the empty street WL approached the tense and official scene. A policeman in regular uniform rushed forward to stop him but doubled up with nausea before he could get near the War Lover. He listened as the translator shouted from under the safari helmet with a lead cloth
