remembering the decade fixin to end

– the interview with the escalator (march 2002)

people will say things about you behind yr back, when youre dead, and sometimes even right to your face.

sometimes they’ll put a blanket over their head and tell you things

sometimes they’ll write it in a note and slip it under your door.

but when i die and they say yeah blogger this blogger that,

one thing i hope they remember is i was interviewing escalators

way before it became trendy.
