microwaves are for girls

the thing about microwaves is that they’ve made us soft. before, when you wanted to boil water, you put some water in a pot and put it on the stove for six or seven or eight minutes. then, if you didn’t have a tea kettle, you had to pour the water from the pot into a cup and more often than not, the water spilled onto the counter or on the floor but at least you were careful not to burn yourself. nowadays, when you want hot water, you put your water in a mug and put it in the microwave for a minute. the only thing you have to be careful about now is not burning yourself on the damn mug handle. you think you should be careful about all those gamma rays in the water, but those scientists said there was nothing wrong with microwaved water. that was until you started growing breasts and you suddenly started having a strong urge to collect barbies and all your phone calls were lasting fifteen to twenty minutes and how all you want to eat is some nutella on a spoon in the dark watching reruns of modern family and off the map on the internet.

alice wasn’t born yesterday but the warnings went way beyond what she expected for this sector. a few weeks ago, all she had to worry about were those pesky seals that had escaped from the zoo trying to shake her down for fish. they were easy to handle. you could give them some almonds or pretend to throw something in the other direction and then run as fast as you could down flatbush where it was more safe. but peruvian camels were another beast altogether. unless you had the right kind of feta cheese, that is, french feta cheese, they weren’t going to let you pass.

when you come underground, into my station, you live by my rules. those rules are not simply lines in my mind but pathological truths that float through this stale air and give it, even for a fleeting second, a semblance of comfort rolled into some order.
