Micrograffiti: They two by Benjamin Beckett05/01/2011
They sat down under the bridge, they two.
I always make up strange things about people, it’s how I remember them. Sometimes I forget the things I made up aren’t true.
What did you make up about me? she said.
That you’re a junkie.
It’s, it’s like based on what your name makes you sound like. Angel Stern the
junkie. It sounds right.
Softly, she said, so you think I’m a junkie?
No, I just make shit up, that’s how I remembered you when we first met.
They lay down, they two, to sleep.
