Danielle Steel And Me

sitting on a park bench
when a woman sits beside
me and starts reading a
book by Danielle Steel.

“Great fucking writer,” I say.
She answers hesitantly,
“Yes she is.”

I wait a few seconds then add,
“I hear she sucks dick
like it’s going out of style.”

The woman stands up and walks away.

In situations where polite conversation
is bound to fail it’s best
to try something else.
