The Power of Inference

The Committee sent in a poetry prof with a published-books list as long as your arm, an NEA writer’s grant, and three chap competition wins under his belt. He gave me to understand that the obvious comes across more persuasively when it’s inferred and not shoved down people’s throats–the Committee would be pleased if I were to take this into consideration.

“What are you inferring?” I said.

“What?” he said.

I whipped out my dick and pissed on his shoes and he ran off down the road like someone was chasing him with an icepick.
