    You’re late.
    Seven minutes. Zed said seven
    o’clock and Zed meant it. This 7:07
    bullshit may get you to heaven early if you don’t watch it. Of course,
    we wouldn’t even be debating this if Zed hadn’t crashed his bike
    trying to make it here on time–
    and wasn’t dead already, baby.

    You’re late.
    You’re late for a very important
    date, that may hate you. And may
    hit you ruthlessly–deface you. So take your place among the many
    faceless ladies laid out, victim to the sins of men, victim to one more
    the fatherless pleasing momma by
    ruthlessly excising self-contempt.
