Slice of Heaven

T: You can be mad at me sometimes. Reminds me you’re human.

J: What makes you think I’m not human?

T: We’re kind of above human dealings sometimes.

J: Because you’re an angel and all?

T: Nah, the Kingdom is within me, not I within It.

J: A slice of Heaven, you are, indeed.

A: I get it. You’re still a young spring chicken.

T: …I get that a lot.

A: That’s probably not the phrase.
something about chickens being young
Fuckin’ google it.

T: I think it’s string chicken?

[begins googling…]

A: Definitely not string chicken

T: nope

A: spry? spy chicken?
young spy chicken.
young rye hen.

T: No, you’re right! It was spring.

A: Is it ‘young spring chicken’?
Did you really think it was ‘string’?

T: I did, hahaha
I thought it meant thin and young.

A: HA.

T: BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT I WANTED IT TO MEAN.

A: You can make it mean whatever you want.

T: Okay, the phrase is she’s “no spring chicken.” Meaning “she’s” no longer young.
So spring chicken means young, I guess.
I’m a spring chicken.

for its identity is already known.

black holes thinly veiled by her greying device.

amused by the bemused. amuse the bemused muse.
