Infinity, Jewel

 

Prologue:

 

…in the picture

Jewel was wearing a shirt

that said

Who Will

Save Your Soul?

but the way the text was laid out

he read it as

 

Who Will

ave Your Soul?

 

and was like

What the fuck does that mean?

because

 

he was intoxicated

and lonely

and the ‘S’ was

hiding on the other side

 

of her chest…

 

 

Today:

 

He doesn’t remember how it happened

but he can remember it happened

effortlessly

 

as if he had no choice in the matter

even though if he’d been given that choice

he would’ve more than most likely responded:

‘Yes’,

anyway

 

it happened

just like it happened

when it happened

 

just like that

 

and the next morning he woke up in bed,

rolled over,

and he was Facebook friends

with Jewel

 

they had breakfast together

 

he made omelets

they ‘liked’ a few links

posted by Scientific American

 

and during the whole time

in which this happened

 

he was thinking they’d had sex

the previous night

but what they’d really done

was simultaneously share a particularly

vibrant quote by Jules Verne

 

he’d made a dumb joke about her middle name

being Vern

even though it wasn’t

 

and they’d ate/eaten

the rest of their breakfast

in silence

 

and then Jewel got up

and left

but before leaving

 

she turned to him

and smiled like a recent photo

of herself standing in Aspen

 

obviously

for the purpose

of skiing

 

and she whispered something

about the Big Bang being

a sunburn

 

and what comes after

pealed skin

 

and then his roommate

walked in on the whole thing

and requested she sing

 

What If God Was One Of Us

 

and Jewel was like

I didn’t write that song

 

and I was like,

 

so ends part one…
