A Sonnet of Six-Word Novels from the Sixth Circle of Hell by Tucker Lieberman

A Sonnet of Six-Word Novels from the Sixth Circle of Hell

My ex has published a book.
His book is about my book.
Our art is hard to explain.
I can’t even. Nor can he.

In a big amount of pain.
Don’t want to talk about it.

Spinning the cylinder all night long.
Empty, empty, empty, empty, empty, bullet.

I don’t think we’re there yet.
How many words do I get?
How many novels do I get?
Next time, I’ll make a movie.

Tell him how I’m hanging in:
“Still in therapy. You, too, please.”
