when i say scaling mermaids, i want to make sure its clear that i mean something awful, not, for instance, running over manatee's with a speed boat. trauma, but not foul. or foul, but no strikes. or i'm not sure. i'm bad with the sports metaphor. i like the ocean. it kills teenagers with undertow & i'm kinda proud for it.
i feel like there are armies of similies with metaphor special ops teams hanging venom like from my lips. at the twitch of an eyebrow i'll be comparing something to carefully prepared blowfish sushi. or you know, something equally useful.
