Love Story

by Angel Zapata


“Can I buy you a drink?”

“Your place or mine?”

“Fuck me.”

“Love you.”

“See you at the courthouse.”

“I do.”

“A son!”

“I’m so happy.”

“I want a divorce!”

“You’re not happy?”

“Our son?”

“I can’t.”

“See you in court.”

“Hate you!”

“Fuck you!”

“Your place is mine!”

“Can someone buy me a drink?”

oops, lost that last one again.

Life accelerated!...just another reason to slow down.
Very nice use of dialogue.

Man. That's the most depressing chiasmus I've ever seen.

Clever! Loved the symmetry of this Angel, then got a buzz out of reading it in reverse.

Now I'm going to go drink myself into oblivion! HAHAHA, Nice one, Angel.

You've just written an entire novel in like 55 words. Drink your beer and go write another.

Nice write, buddy.

Ari Collins said...

This one's right up my alley. Formalism within the already formalist structure of a 55-word-story? Yes please!

Cormac Brown said...

Brilliant, that.

Very nice. Perfect circle of life, however sad that might be sometimes.
