Selected Excerpt
I think you should go back to your cubicle.
I have a switchblade in my underwear. Under the elastic .
Are you threatening me?
Takes out the switchblade. He just holds it.
It sure is a complicated world Mr. Meyer. There’s hardly anything to hang onto these days. War and famine and and plagues of locusts and no carbs and reality tv and Republican punk rock bands .The whole worlds gone inside out and all it’s guts are spilling. Everything is lies and secrets. All I ever wanted my whole life was to come to the big city and staple in a cubicle. But, somehow the more I see the more hollow it all seems. All those glittery dreams. How’s a boy like me supposed to untangle it all Mr. Meyer? I’m just a farm boy. I was brought up natural. Nursed until I was nine. Married my Aunt Boo. She’s dead now. Eaten by wild dogs.
