The Poisonous Tongue

The words didn’t taste any different sitting on my tongue. Much unlike the bitter, viscous words I was used to swishing around, playing with them inside of my mouth for long enough to make a decision on whether or not I’d swallow them or spit them out carelessly, these were devoid of any weight, and … More The Poisonous Tongue

The Naked First Date
