Greed/ Pig With Lipstick

You ugly little pig,

You want a taste?


No. A taste won't do. 


You want to eat

every cake in the shop

Don't you?



You want to paint

your fat hooves in sugar

crumbs; you'll lick 

your lips waxy red 


You'll eat

them all because

you think you can;


Go on, shove your

snout into the cream

But don't forget to breathe.


You don't enjoy it, do you?

You just eat and eat

Like a mindless boar;

You just eat and eat 

 
You won't 

stop until

you're satisfied


You won't stop

until you're dead


One day you'll wake

up starved and chained

to your own company


You'll be beaten by

your love for sweets

With no one to listen

to you cry for mercy 

As they cart you off

to the slaughter house


So go on, little pig. Eat.

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…
