Things Up To Now

I have an inkling that sometimes the big, black, seemingly-indifferent cosmos aligns stars and constellations to fuck you. And when it does, it usually plunges for your weakest organ: your heart. 

The Butcher

"Like a ghost of bitches past, I've jumped up menacingly from the bottom of your bed demanding margaritas and orgasms."

The Alchemist

Roxanne

I've written some long and drunken thank you notes to men I knew for fifteen minutes: thanks for the dinner, the sex, and the punch in the heart. But now never call again — never think of me again.

Rolling in Rivers

Somebody told me that when you lie in the jaw of crocodile, you won't be alive long enough to hear the snap and thrash of gnashers and teeth.

It's peculiar in a thousand prismed ways: I'm a barker and a biter; a scrapper and a fighter. I smoke too many cigarettes and sometimes have the heaviest whisky breath in a bar.
