Breadcrumb #433


I bought a $400 dress
that makes me look
like the cast of Dynasty fucked
a disco ball
and I couldn’t be happier.
I had it altered
to show more cleavage. 

I was going to say
I couldn’t afford it
to sound more relatable
but that’s a lie. 

I work at a hedge fund,
my parents are dead.
I could afford it. 

Other things I can afford:
a Nintendo Switch,
an oil painting of Lisa Rinna
from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
pointing at her head. 

I was going to say
I would rather have my parents back
than any of these things,
to sound more relatable,
but that’s also a lie. 

My parents
were going to die eventually,
and someday that dress
will no longer fit,
my Nintendo
will stop working,
but that painting of Lisa Rinna,
that, will last forever.
