 Who Killed Mr. Mush? – Philip Marlow Investigates


It was a hot sultry night, the kind which sends people 
skinny dipping into fountains and ordering buckets of 
Tequila Sunrise at sunset!
I was sitting in my private eye office, my fedora off, my trenchcoat 
on the floor and my suspenders down.
I was wiping my brow, the fan was going up and down 
like Paris Hilton’s dress on a ferris wheel 
(even when the wheel’s not in operation!).
It was then that this dame walks in- tight blouse, tight skirt and spiked stilettos!
She sat down on the chair right in front of my desk right 
on top of a bag of marshmallows! 
I had planned to roast the marshmallows later by sticking them 
on a stick and holding them out the window in the stifling night air!
“I want to know who killed Mr. Mush?” she spoke in a voice as sultry as the night.
“Speaking of mush, you might want to check the back of your skirt,” 
I handed her a business card with the address
 of a neighbourhood dry cleaning establishment.

To be continued.
