The whole point of a stab wound is the poignant memory

Poignant things:
CARNAVAL  
I’m invited to a costume party. I decide to go as myself, so I take off the mask I typically wear when I’m out in the world, working, visiting the girlfriend, conversing with friends or home with my family.  
The party’s boring and the masks aren’t original: they all stole my idea.

  1. "The whole point of a stab wound is the poignant memory": that sounds like a line from one of your poems! And the next line could play off it:

    The whole point of a stab wound
    is the poignant memory. I wound
    my Swiss army knife, mistaking it
    for a Swiss watch. Guess I'm on
    military time now...

    Okay, I'm not wholly awake yet.

    1. It is a line from one of my poems!!! It's from "Poem with a Line from Saturday Night Fever" (that's not the line from Saturday Night Fever though) and it was in Coconut 12.

      And now I really, really want to watch SNF.
