by Amy Zoellers

“Aloha,” said the afterlife

“OH, my sick and beautiful

nascent joys.

You’ve had a long and rigorous


We have but one chair

and there are three of you.

But take the chair

and be engulfed in your

cruelest acts of life,

in endless repetition, first

as yourself, then as your

objects of abuse.

Recline on the table and

slide into madness of terror,

terror magnificent and magnified,

unrelenting, ripping you open,

constant, bouldering threat

Fire, hailstones and pursuit..

Lean on the wall and swim

in nausea forever.

One destiny for each of you.


As the afterlife had known,

all three lunged for the chair,

battering and slapping their

eternity away in battle for

the ecstasies, the eternal

indulgence of cruelty.
