Hampshire walked into the locker room to check where his things were located. He walked down the sets of lockers until he saw something that caught his eye, an assault rifle was sitting there on one of the benches. Glancing around the locker room before deciding that it wasn’t being claimed anyone. At the moment at least. He swooped in and snatched up into his hands.
“Why hello there lovely little lady” He chuckled to himself as he looked the gun over. “Well…” he continued as he found the plaque that said ‘New Hampshire’ on the cold metal locker he unlocked it and pealed the door back. He grinned as he picked up on the tool boxes resting on its side. He placed it on the floor as he took a seat and began to take apart the gun as he let his guard down.
excerpt from Madonna of the Evening Flowers by Amy Lowell
“…I see you, Standing under a spire of pale blue larkspur, With a basket of roses on your arm. You are cool, like silver, And you smile. I think the canterbury bells are playing little tunes, You tell me that the peonies need spraying, That the columbines have overrun all bounds, That the pyrus japonica should be cut back and rounded. You tell me these things. But I look at you, heart of silver, White heart-flame of polished silver, Burning beneath the blue steeples of the larkspur, And I long to kneel instantly at your feet, While all about us peal the loud, sweet te~deums of the canterbury bells.”
