    Many people live life drowning every meal in a cheap condiment. Both literally and figuratively.

“for him” by Eric Dean, 2008ish

[Originally published in issue #10 of The Literary Hatchet. You can find the poem on page 77 of the free download HERE, or order a print copy HERE.]


I want to disassemble him and lose some of the pieces
Swept under the rug, and I’ll shrug and say
“Sorry, I never saw them.”
I want to put him back together just a little crooked
And crack the clips and strip the screws so you can never fix him.
I want to take the parts you like and rearrange their places.
Tie the best ones together with wire
And throw them in a lake.
