Look at how I love them.

15 Dec

“The Monkeyhouse” by Rachel Yoder in the latest Collagist is filled with light and sorrow and John says the word “devastating” and yes, that is the correct and perfect word for it.

I sat with the others in a dark booth and tipped pints of amber away inside of me. People talked around us. They made underwater noises. I moved my head from side to side, slowly. It was murky and deep. We were echoes of other people, fading from ourselves. I kept pouring amber light inside myself. I wanted only to purr and glow.

Devastate yourself.
