"There’s this playground game that kids play. They lock hands and on the count of three they try to snap each others fingers off. You hold off as long as you can, or at least longer than the other guy. The game doesn’t end until someone says “stop”, gives up, cries mercy. It isn’t a fun game. In the game of mercy when one kid cries out, the other one listens and the pain stops. Don’t you wish it was that easy now? It’s not a game anymore and we’re not kids. You can cry mercy all you want, but nobody is listening. It’s just you screaming into a void."

of your tattoos and how long
they will stay with you
after I go."

I want to see you.
I want you to see me."
