Paper Thin

Prometheus Dreaming (Online) January 2020

He knew all there was to know
about her. She knew all she
needed to know. There was paper
on the walls between them,
but the walls themselves
did not exist.

to borrow a little hot sauce.

He gave it to her.
He gave it to her good.

She came again on Saturday.
The whole building heard it.

he’s revised the revised revision
until all he really thinks he knows
is what he says he’s written.
