Love Handles (from Beauty Marks)

"The lighting in this bar is dim enough, and the frozen cosmopolitans cheap enough, that everybody here flirts with the screens of their smartphones while dance-mixed divas screech catchy anthems about abandonment in the background. Luxurious despair bathed in neon green; it’s the perfect place to go whenever I want to obliterate thoughts of you. Although dressed entirely in black like I am tonight, I am often mistaken for one of the servers. But the only tip I’ve gotten is that you can get stronger drinks in the rear lounge."
