keeping it copacetic


you just don’t get it
do you
she says
unwrapping a stick of
frozen butter on the counter

no I don’t
I think to myself
but all I can say out loud is
what

and don’t give me that
what the fuck are you talking about
face
I don’t wanna see that

I don’t wanna see that either I say

see what she says

that
what the fuck are you talking about
face

very funny
she says
sterling silver knife in hand


november two thousand thirteen

  1. Is this meant to be humorous? I kind of chuckled at the thought of the woman in this piece using the sterling silver knife to stab the point-of-view character. Haha…

  2. A moment well captured.

  3. Very Carver. I like your writing.

  4. I love this! Everyone experiences these moments where they wish they could say something they know they shouldn’t. This feeds that dream in a satisfying way and also makes me laugh. 🙂
