The Absinthe Drinker

The Absinthe Drinker
Victor Oliva, "The Absinthe Drinker"


Johnny Writer Dude, writing writerly writings.

White shirt, sleeves rolled up, black vest, black tie, unwashed nocolor hair, untrimmed nocolor goatee, writing writerly with pen and notebook, old school the way writerly writers do, high on caffeine and self-importance.

"Something's brewing. Strong, black. A bittersweet house blend. A dash of hipster to cool things off. But it's gonna burrrrn going down..."

What if the world you lived in weren't real...?
