Nation Love
by jessica tedder
I got botox injected into my lips today. I don’t have any particularstrife with them, but America does and that isn’t okay with me. I haveto please my lady. Kiss her gently for the queen she is. I know she’sdone her wrongs, cheated on me countless times, took up alliances withshady characters, and never comes home when she says she’s going to.But I love her anyways. She makes me feel safe. Truth be told shewouldn’t hold it against me if I had a few extra pounds or even becamemorbidly obese. She feeds me well. Maybe she can’t afford organic butshe always makes sure I can get ten pizzas for ten dollars. You shouldsee her porn collection. 50 thousand titles. We get drunk and reproducelike crazy. Dirty sex. And we don’t just smoke a cig afterwards; wesmoke a whole pack together. She’s my queen. Sure I know she slipschemicals into my water, but they haven’t killed me yet. That tells meshe has a good heart beneath it all. And on her bad days when shebreaks down my door and cuffs me to a chair and tortures me I don’tmind too much. That’s just how America gets down. She’s a freaky bitchlike that. I don’t even mind that she’s high maintenance; so she has merunning for my money, keeping an eye on my wallet. She wouldn’t be asbeautiful without all that bling she wears and she knows it. And forthat I love her, for doing what she has to, to keep her image up. She’snot like other girls.

  1. Yeah! It’s like romance out of Grand Theft Auto! I’m really enjoying this week of ‘flash fiction’! … A lot of erotic pieces from ‘bad girls’. Compelling work, Ms. Tedder! ..and written from the perspective of a guy! Reminds me of Steve Martin in ‘The Jerk’ with his motorcycle gang girlfriend.
