The Champ Is Tapped Out


Avaritia stands aloft. Spreads his thick arms. Cash rains onto the partygoers. They slurp the pools of green off his marble floor and out of his champagne fountain.

Across the crumbling city an IRS agent salivates as a judge signs his warrant.

    slurping pools of green is so vivid! I have an image of Avaritia as somewhere between Al Capone and Hulk. Excellent use of all shades of green.


  2. For some reason I couldn’t help but to think of Jack Nicholson’s version of the joker in one of the batman movies! But then the IRS part changed it. 🙂 This was a super compelling story in such a short amount of words!
