And What if I did?

What if I decided to let go

of my restraint and leave

to be logical and good and pure and sound and demure;

fighting tooth and nail to shut off the valve

of pulsating possibilities so that I am

left in the Desert, thirsty and weak. 


If it's all the same to you, I'll loosen my grip but I won't let go of the reins.

Hope's paper-thin smile tried to grow as she stared at her grandmother's reflection in the mirror. The mother-of-pearl grip sparkled in her grandmother's hand, bathed by the Chapel's cheap buzzing lights.

'There's a bullet for you, just in case.'

Hope had left the gun on the table.

A week earlier, drunk off self-pity, she had taken it out of its case and walked to the kitchen, where she stuck the barrel in her mouth and proceeded to take pictures of herself to send to Ray.

In a rare instance of good fortune, her phone ran out of battery before she could indulge her sense of pithy revenge. She woke up and pried open her tear-salted eyelashes then made sure to delete an…
