Levels of Awareness in a Pool of Shit

Life is essentially,

a swimming hole

overflowing with

the most repugnant

of fecal matters.

Now some people are fine with it

as long as they keep believing it's water

and you keep telling them it's water,

they'll keep swimming, happy little shit clams.

Some people might notice the smell and

question the validity of their shitwater,

but for the most part they get used to it

and it doesn't seem like a normal day

without that hot and heavy stench of utter Shit.

And then, the lucky few,

realize what it is they swim in,

want to get out and wash off,

They wash off and they get cold

They jump right back in

Then they turn to their neighbor and they say:

" Oh my goodness, How did I get into such deep shit?"

And these are the levels of awareness.

Oh come on IN,

the water feels great.

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…
