The Voice of Molten Glass

Lonely Planet
by Eric Fan
Caelum heard it on the eve of his father's death. A bell, the sound of thick bronze, soon as Caelum laid his head on the pillow, relieved now that he'd burned all his baby pictures and the old fantasies with them.

The bell tolled every night before he slept.

*

Partly inspired by this Cold Cave song.

If this were a horror movie and I were directing, it would open to the low, thunderous wail of I Am the Sun.
