I don’t want anything from him

except his red apple heart.

Something I can bite into quickly

without making a mess.

If you asked him,
he’d claim he’s never met anyone
kinder, so please don’t say anything
about this.

All I want from him is his love.

The fruit of it. The sweet stuff.

All I want is to keep it inside of me

and then move along, because

I don’t like being touched more
than I liked being looked at.

Is it so terrible that I want

to be bigger than him? That I

don’t want to want more than

I need from a person?

I don’t think that’s bad, but

people keep telling me to

apologize for chewing with my

mouth open, so what am

I supposed to do with a whole

heart in there?


How am I going to eat it quietly?

Just give me the thing with no

hands so that I can go to sleep

without them around my neck.


I don’t want the body of love

like I used to. I don’t want to

be kissed.
Well, maybe I do, but not now.

When I close my eyes, I’m a statue
that he wants to run his tongue over.
When I close my eyes, I cut it off
and keep it.

Is it weird that I find Taylor Swift so annoying I don’t even really want to parse why exactly that is?

Publicist: Where can I send [2 titles]?

Me: [Gives reviewer addresses]

3 weeks pass, reviewers tell me the Friday before a Monday reviews deadline that the books haven’t shown up.

Me: [emails publicist]

Publicist: [out of office reply]

Me: [hangs self]

Whatever you may think about the ALS ice bucket challenge, you must admit that it’s a brilliant use of meme culture.

I’m just not interested in the emotional growth of men in literature. And I’m not sorry about it.

Absolutely nobody should be surprised at this point that the cops in Ferguson are blatantly lying about pretty much everything.
