TWO WORKS
BY KARI EDWARDS

FROM: DIARY OF LIES
PARTS OF THE SAME STORY / THEME AND VISITATION

        the blank two hours was too long ago yesterday, a hundred years around the bend tomorrow, a half of a perfect solitude, half of a perfect bunny, half of a perfect bobbi, half of a perfect me, for my eyes only, for any one who would say yes. I was their performing acrobat, refueling wounds, barrier relief stunts. I watched. I landed. they claimed a new land and the pilot said -
        we will be arriving at your family of origin dream waist high grass flashlight bodies rubbing cum soaked sheets and pretty pussy dreams . . . please fasten you seat belts.
      I tried to imagine hell's rule book, its headquarters. what went on at that exclusive retreat? was it on the map? was there a choice to pretend to in shocked over those drips of blood, those scares, and that black silk flowers drawn ever so gently across the flesh that was held in place with steel thorns?
   the copilot was playing father superior again with that vaseline coated wooden cross, using self disinfectant to maintain regularity. I had to hurry up and decide, long before nero pranced next to the regal reminisces of a bloody cunt queen.
