i could go crazy like jack nicholson from the shining

by Abigail Diaz

 

friday after school: a cloud of

black between my ears again. i lay my head next to my

dog's head, wonder if she'll feel a difference when i die.

it's a little thing, you know. smallest

of the small, a smoke alarm blinking at the

back of my skull. one of these days the whole place will blow

sky-high, the air will rain the soft and ugly

shrapnel of my body, and finally i will

cease to matter.
