All His Head Were Vampires

.
Salient features arranged as a face. A bulbous nose, a full mouth, two blue eyes. His cheeks are the limits and his ears, tucked in at the sides and with detached lobes, become useful beyond hearing for reasons of balance. When he talks his scruffy chin dips and wobbles and it sometimes scrunches when he misremembers or misspeaks. The right corner of his mouth, as you would see it or as it is in a mirror, curls and opens to dump gaseous echoes. After a day awake and mobile he can seem quite handsome to himself with a square jaw line and the appearance of focus. In the morning, through blurry eyes, he wonders only what happens to his identity in those hours asleep that can turn this small source of pride into one of contempt.

  1. Yes. This is part one of a multi part piece, each edition focusing on a different area of Robert Pattinson's body.
    Should this series be successfull, I'm going to move onto his soul.
