“An Account of Our Precipice” by Jason McGlone

We three stare at each other
it’s Reservoir Dogs: Burgeoning
Domestic Dispute Edition

Our mouths trained guns,
words chambered,

Hello translates directly to Say something stupid, Brian
Another Hello says Let’s not do this
My wife’s smile says, Who the fuck is she?

It could be a veritable
massacre here at the zoo today;

stay tuned
