Differently on Writers
ecause I am a writer I can see things anyway. I think it works
differently on writers. There is a naked woman sucking at my toes. She
is dead. Anyway. Some of it I can control. I think that too is because
I am a writer. Of fiction. She has a bullet hole in her head where I
shot her. Tramoflan. Pramophlan. Cramophlan. Something like that.
Harmless enough to give to a baby. Nothing is right anymore. Not for
anybody. So good for you. Why does she do that? I can still write.
News guy still does the news though he says there is a still-beating
heart on the desk in front of him. Knowing that we all will
understand. There it is now I see one too. On my desk. Because I am a
writer. He keeps going back to the heart, talking about it in the
middle of a sentence about people throwing themselves off buildings in
Detroit. He is sad, I can tell. We have made mistakes. Humanity has
made a mistake. Why this woman? It's fascinating. I don't know her.
Jeremy Tavares is a writer currently living in South Carolina.
