Sally says…

Take two xanax, drink a bottle of wine, and call me in the morning.

Be sure that you don’t forget that you are a slave to me; that I own you. Sally says these things with a coy smile.

She only eats her steak rare, and she always drinks her whiskey straight. And no ice. She doesn’t like it watered down. It takes out the kick. She will tell you, with the knife picking at the specks of pepper flakes that are wedged between her crooked teeth, that she will take care of you, so long as you take care of her.

She’s like a rouge – French. The perfume, and the never quite right ruby-red lipstick that is always smudged on the bottom from the eight-ball whiskey glass, make it known she can’t be trusted. Her dark, curly black hair is never properly sitting on top of her head and always seems to have jeweled barrettes placed nonchalantly in various, odd places. The knee-high knickers that she covers with her dark green dress hides that Sally doesn’t have it, but that she’ll take it from you. You are her meal ticket. You are her rouge.

Take two xanax, drink a bottle of wine, sign this piece of paper and call me in the morning. Sally doesn’t love you; she loves what you can do for her.

  1. Dark, brilliantly phrased, and I love this concept and the allusions at the end. Very nice, if you keep writing like this, I may forgive you for beating me up on the bus – in the fourth grade.

  2. Thank you to Warrior Poet Wisdom for nominating the blog for the Liebster Blog. I, as i have said, am very humbled to be recognized for my ramblings. As Warrior Poet expressed there are a huge number of people here on WordPress and FaceBook who read and comment on our blogs. Most of those numbers are a result of someone making the effort to share what they’ve read here with other people. Like WPW I would probably still be writing even if no one was reading, but it’s so much more encouraging when you know what you’re creating is make a difference in even once person’s life. That is my sole intention: to help others. whether that help be in some self defense tip or simply helps them to think and see traditional martial arts for what they really are. Thank all of you for reading and helping pass what you learn or what you are inspired by in my opinions.
