A lot of people assume

that they have something

in common with celebrities

because they have similar 

names or they enjoy 

similar trivial things

That's the way it should be

Religion gave a reason 

for why we have to

that forever

gives us a

The bright side

is that they have

the shit too, and

boy do we enjoy


the pleasure of 

watching their

dirty laundry

get washed by

thousands of 

anonymous eyes

Because if we don't make it,

At least we can boast that

we didn't get addicted to meth

and if we did, it doesn't matter

because we aren't worth a rat's ass.

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…
