she thought she was a god

a bitchy

demanding

firebreathing

god

::

she was not

she was just a woman

mortal like any other

though she didn’t believe in her own mortality

she would

soon

but she didn’t

::

she thought he was a toad

a worthless

impotent

powerless

toad

a toad she had sex with when she wanted it, to be sure

but a toad nonetheless

::

he wasn’t a toad

he was just a man

mortal like any other

living with aids just made that mortality more certain was all

::

it also made him smile

a cold

secret

vindicated smile

and for the thousandth time he thought of telling her

::

she screamed his name from the other room

a screech

like brakes

just before a car went under a truck

::

his smile never faltered in the face of his dark and angry god

as he turned and trudged towards the door

::

she wasn’t

not really

she was just a woman

mortal like any other

    NOTE :: THIS IS A WORK OF FICTION AND AS FAR AS I KNOW HAS NO BASIS IN REALITY

    sorry, don’t mean to talk down to anybody, but you’d be surprised the knuckleheads who can’t tell blatant fiction from possible fact out on teh interwebs

    I loved it. Well done.

    I was recently reading (in a Savage Love column, where I get all my sex advice) that there are people in the world who actively seek to become infected with HiV. I know that’s not the idea you’re conveying in this piece, but it reminded me of that.
