Drunk Guy

by Catherine Simpson

He said, All women in Isla Vista are
Cheating on their boyfriends.
I ruffled his hair affectionately.
His eyes were like a whirlpool
In a bathtub. He said,
That kind of condescension
Will get you raped.

“...we have been born here to witness and celebrate. We wonder at our purpose for living. Our purpose
is to perceive the fantastic. Why have a universe if there is no audience?” — Ray Bradbury
