Fate or Intersection? [Combatwords, February 3, 2012]

Fate or Intersection? [Combatwords, February 3, 2012]

From even before the time you were born, the means to dispose of you was being devised, revised and deployed. Am I allergic to wasp stings? I won't know until I'm in anaphylactic shock. That's an easy one. What about the little deaths? I mean those nemeses in cashmere sweaters and worsted wool suits who kill you with commands—how long have they been brewing? I know, I'm so morbid. I could have started out by asking you about your first love, except that we all die and not all of us love (some of you are real sick fucks...). Therefore, you can write all about kismet, serendipity or any other airy-fairy frippery. I don't care. Just write and fight each other if you can.
