and the day he died was a birthday and I noticed it was mine

Well, I know how "Orm the Beautiful" ends, thanks to the willingness of my crit group to have their ears bent and help me brainstorm. And a little judicious theft from Dylan Thomas.

Now I just have to get through the middle.

They never come out quite the way you picture them. This is funnier than I expected, in a sad drifting sort of way.

Also, can somebody please tell me what my brain is growing? Because this is the playlist that currently pleases the muse:

Crosby, Stills & Nash, Cathedral
Iggy Pop, The Passenger 
David Bowie, Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing (Reprise)
Das Ich, Re-Animat
Joni Mitchell, For The Roses
Neko Case, Dirty Knife
David Bowie, Seven
Tracy Chapman, In the Dark
Cat Power, Metal Heart
Leonard Cohen, Who By Fire
Peter Mulvey, Falling
Jethro Tull, Dun Ringill
Led Zeppelin, What Is And What Should Never Be
After The Fire, Der Kommissar
U2, God Part II
Jose Gonzalez, Heartbeats
Robert Plant, Little By Little
Entrain, Dancin' In The Light (Tarbosh)
U2, City of Blinding Lights
Seven Nations, Faithful Departed
Tom Waits, Make It Rain
Vienna Teng, The Tower
Shriekback, Signs
Blue Oyster Cult, Dancin' in the Ruins
Outgrabe, We Like Angels Never Weep
The Incredible String Band, Dear Old Battlefield
Yes, City of Love
Maddy Prior, Boy on a Horse

While I'm sure there's a story in that....

...I think the best I can do with it is undead, kinky, heartbroken, post-apocalyptic, jaded pop-star, lycanthrope hustlers suffering a crisis of faith.

Yeah, you think it's funny, but I have to live in this brain.
