These Places

by Sally Snow

Age Group: Adult



When the normal is forbidden
people will fall into the abnormal.

The roadsides were just covered
with tiny pieces of crap.
Yards of unexplicably twisted metal.
I started up again. I
had a long way to go.

No one stopped.
No one asked where I was going.
No one offered me a ride.

Then, just when I've forgotten
where I was going,
there in the distance....

I find a place I never even knew
existed, much less
its arcane pronunciation.
These places scare the sh*t out of me.

Once upon a time,
last Tuesday to be exact....

I was just recovering from
the worst fluid-depleting case of the
flu ever. And
even before I found this place and
she came into my life, I
was having a pretty ***ed-up year.

She looked like a dark angel
emerging from the fallen ashes of
some soul-stealing post-midnight
bonfire ritual.
When the normal is forbidden
people will fall into the abnormal.

These places scare the sh*t out of me,
not because the clerk sits behind
glass, nor because
the dude in the corner
has one eye, but because
alcohol cannot be purchased and
I know everyone wants to drink
REAL BAD.

Sometimes abnormal is very
normal and a step beyond
perfection is disaster. These places
scare the sh*t out of me.
