asking for itTo Scott Holstad's previous piece     Cloudy, but who cares?To Scott Holstad's next piece


i married once
it hasn't killed
her yet
oh mother
i wish for death
my shame and
my guilt eat
away at my flesh

i get notes from
editors saying i
write about morbid

their powers of
fucking observation
are amazing

i can't write about
do i want to
to me
are dead creatures
much like me
yet they are 
far prettier

i once asked a
friend to pull the
trigger of a glock
i had in my mouth
and she wouldn't

i can't end it
with grace
i can't give a damn

i wish i had something
to kill besides myself
