Pancreatic Cancer

Affable guy walks over to an affable girl. His T-shirt says “Pancreatic Cancer.” Her T-Shirt says “Leonard Michaels”; on one boob is a little drawing of Leonard Michaels. He has a tattoo of an angry bird with a speech bubble sprouting from its beak. “M.F.A.,” the bird is saying. She’s holding a novel by Mark Leyner. Her backpack is full, and won’t zip up properly because the top of a Nalgene watter bottle is sticking out. She steps forward and they kiss. They separate. They kiss again. A woman mopping the room they’re in sighs and keeps her eyes on the floor. They separate again. The walls collapse, it was all an optical illusion, etc
