Great Words

Here are some great words:





Oh wow, would you look at that?

I just wrote your ass a poem.

Why don't you analyze it for me and tell me what I meant to say, junior literati ?


  1. My name, my heart, my skin, my lungs,
    this brittle little tongue.
    The sand the sun these clams and insatiable toenails are all disintegrating as we speak.
    I will be forgetten in a week.
    My legs, and hips, and furtive quips
    will be gone without a bit of reverence
    These lips will go hungry and be devoured by ravenous microbial insects.

    And i said to god himself:
    I have sacrificed the blood of sacred bulls on an alter of antler and skull.
    I have gathered the wood of haunted shipwrecks dismantled their decks and hulls
    and planked this holy vestibule.
    And flanked its hills with daffodils
    and peonies and tulips
    and perpetual indecency.
    I pleaded with freshly splattered hands,
    I said my god my god.
    let me be used in any way or shape
    instead of going horribly to waste

She handed the pistol to Hope, right after the vows, right before the reception.

'I'm just kidding, darling. Don't worry. He's a good man. You did well sweetheart. He's a good man. You'll be fine.'

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…
