I’m going to write a novel
but it will only consist of one page
for you see,
I don’t have the energy
to construct characters; much less a story
that will make any sense beyond the first page.
For this, is my novel:
I drank. I smoked. We fucked. I came.
She didn’t. I smoked. We smoked.
I woke up. She was gone.
I loved her. I don’t believe the love was reciprocated.
I died..alone. As we all do in the end.
