Masochistic Support Group

There’s a creative memoir writing group in town. It reminds me of the movie, Fight Club. A masochistic support group, for lacerating the blisters we’ve gotten in life. Breaking the skin to let the demons escape. Fighting with ourselves, like Tyler Durden punching himself over and over again…

At the end of our stories, the capitalistic illusion will fall for us, as it did in the movie. When the facades exploded and came crumbling down. Our bodies will likewise fail. Everything we own will be worthless. All that will matter in the end will be our stories.
