The Leather Deviant Line

A dark pas de deux

Michael Scott is in his mid-twenties, and appears to be in a lot of trouble.  On the underside of a set of bleachers on a high school athletic field, the ground covered with beer cans and beer bottles, very late at night, Michael is in the grasp of Spike an ageless leather clad man and an absolute icon of masculine cruelty.  Light is provided by a series of “field lights” just visible through the rows of bleachers.  Through the “sodium vapor” that produces a yellowish illumination giving objects an “other worldly” look, Spike forces Michael to face himself and choose between his daily lie and a dark kind of love.
