I have never been happy or sad buying Scotch tape. Which is why

when people ask: “When you die, what would you like to come

back as? I almost always say: "Scotch tape." Although sometimes,

if I am in the right mood, I say: “Anything but Scotch tape.”

Ricky Garni was born in Miami and grew up in Florida and Maine. He works as a graphic designer by day and writes music by night. COO, a tiny collection of short prose printed on college lined paper with found materials such as coins, stamps and feathers, was recently released by Bitterzoet Press.
