Impostory OR Unplagiarism

by Ari Collins

You gutted me like a fish.

Once my scales glittered brightly. Now I'm exposed. Empty. Raw.

I flopped away before you could gobble me up, but it's too late for my heart. And my entrails.

I almost wish I'd waited for the frying pan. Just so I might splash grease on you before I'm gone.

I like this a lot.

I like it too. The title and the writing style should tell you something. But it's seriously dead-on, regardless.
