Me & James F.

October 18th, 2013, 4pm

  1. Kermit & Miss Piggy. We rob a hot dog stand on 34th Street and the cashier is looking at me in my mask like she can see through it while I brandish this so-called gun and I imagine myself in her mind’s eye and I can see that to her I’m not a person. Maybe I don’t even need a mask cause I’m watching her through the plastic eyes of Miss Piggy while that actor James F. wears Kermit —he’s behind the counter stuffing money into a lunch bag— and I’m thinking like I’m two different people. One wants to take off the mask and apologize and maybe hug her a little because she’d be crying naturally.

The other wants to pull the trigger.

Cassie and David Wade said thanks.
