“Before I'd touch a square bitch's slit,
I'd suck a thousand clappy pricks and swim through liquid shit,
They got green puke between their rotten toes,
And snot runs from their funky nose,
I hope square bitches become syphilitic wrecks,
I hope they fall through their own assholes and break their motherfucking necks.”
Iceberg Slim, Pimp: The Story of My Life

“My heart lost rhythm at the flicker of phantom in the whiskey-stained voice.”
Iceberg Slim

“An emotional debt is hard to square.”
