she is where she is or Why She Boarded the Shuttle for the Station at Lagrange Point Seven

by Trent Walters

She is unhappy with herself because she is two months pregnant with his child, she is two months pregnant with his child because he didn’t wear a condom, he didn’t wear a condom because he was too horny to think straight, he was too horny to think straight because she had really turned him on, she had really turned him on because virginity embarrassed her, virginity embarrassed her because her mother had laughed when she’d asked what a penis felt like, her mother had laughed when she’d asked what a penis felt like because her mother’s mother had slapped her mother when her mother had asked her mother’s mother the same question, her mother’s mother had slapped her mother when her mother had asked her mother’s mother the same question because her mother’s mother had felt only one penis which was her mother’s father’s who had gotten her mother’s mother drunk off a whole mason jar of moonshine and left her mother’s mother two months later when her mother’s father heard her mother’s mother was pregnant with her mother’s father’s child.
