If you see her say hello (things to never say to an ex)

by Gary Percesepe

“At the first words we would have collapsed like those puppets in shooting galleries when the pellet hits the mark.” ~ Patrick Modiano, Suspended Sentences


I'm sorry, who is this? I have a new phone.

Karma's a bitch, eh?

It's for the best.

Everything happens for a reason.

Did you ever find my black t-shirt?

Can we meet up, you know, for closure?

It's not you, it's me.

I thought you got me.

Your hair formed a stain on the twilight.

The sex was great, though.

Wasn't it?

No relationship will ever give you more than you can handle.

I thought you'd want to see her picture.
