long-term plan

by Adam Showalter

I'll write a book and publish it. I'll buy every copy of every edition of that book and fill a library with it. I'll burn that library down and write a poem about it. I'll call that poem "the most poignant thing I've ever written" and celebrate by instantly tearing it to confetti and showering myself with it. I'll enjoy a glass of champagne. I'll sit for a while and think, no one has ever had champagne that poignant.
