Fucked-Up / by Rebecca Tillett

You do sound really fucked up, but (wait, wait, wait) guess what: anyone pouring their heart out to a friend will always sound fucked up. Know why? Because we’re all fucked up, my dear. We’ve just all mastered the art of appearing not-fucked-up along with everyone else, even knowing everyone’s just as fucked up as we are. What a quote that is! You can put that on my tombstone,...which I’ll never have anyway because being buried makes my skin crawl. Sounds so much worse than being burned to ash, right? Or is that a fucked-up presumption? Who created the rules for this place anyway? Oh, that’s right: countless fucked up human beings over the course of history.
