Only the Right Ones Are Interested

​Capitalism whips its subjects with chains of competition. Pitting brother against brother, bridesmaid against bridesmaid, and husband against wife. The Ivy League itches the superiority complexes of its alumni, and their families bend to elitist tides. Well, this is not the case for humble, little Brad.

Brad floated around aimlessly before deciding to ask for money for a living. His wife Melanie slaves away with a governmental badge, and their nights are sexless and book-ended by anxious pillow talk. Brad is the primary contributor of the nervous waters that overcome their sheets. Melanie wades in a vessel of contentment, firing off assurances to her husband's neurotic ramblings.

They have created a being capable of summoning the darkest storms, and suppressing the greatest grievances. His name is Troy, and they are about to surrender him to some lucky university. Brad has the most open schedule, and largest stakes in accompanying Troy on his quest for belonging. The school hunt is split down the middle: Half for Troy to map out his future, and half for Brad to combat his past.

The youth and possibilities that Brad confronts invigorate him until he realizes there is no place for him in this idealized wonderland. He spent his honeymoon of ambition over twenty years ago in this Bostonian Mecca of bright minds. His collegiate gang utilized their four year vacation as a springboard to plunder the world. Unfortunately, he chose to save the world.

Brad's legacy compounds onto Troy's shoulders. Born with a gift that his father is not fully aware of, Troy must stomach the constant delusions of grandeur spewing out of his dad's mouth. Brad seems to be going out of his way to jinx his son, yet they have a beautiful system of course correcting designed in harsh but fair rebukes.

The fears accumulating in Brad's head write vivid, voyeuristic daydreams. Visions supplanting him or his son into the shoes of fame, riches, and notoriety. The envy pumping through his brain reduces his achievements to failures. The obsessions of image and pay scale build a dome that airdrops of love cannot penetrate. Late hotel nights turn into brutal confessionals of a son to his father. "I'm no longer embarrassed by you," the teenager blinks.
