THE UNIVERSE IS PUNISHING ME

2 Jun

The Universe is punishing me for my transgressions, she told herself. She thought of her brutishness on the kibbutz, but there were other iniquities as well. She passed in and out of consciousness. She saw the Universe funnel down into a single entity, a bitch goddess with large breasts and many arms, who doled out diseases as punishment. To one she gave leprosy, to another typhoid fever. Dysentery was her gift to Petra. Petra awoke from fevered dreams to find the goddess sitting on her chest, waving her arms, as if she were dancing.
