nothing in here is true

    what if it just blooms inside you 

    what if theres nothing you can do

    what if its in your jeans and your shorts and socks and stinky sneakers

    and the older you get the more likely it’s gonna happen

    and all the romantic poets who died in their 30s avoided it for the most part but not you, its gonna get you?

    i feel the same way about the Big One, it’s gonna happen. the earth is gonna shake.

    your only hope is it happens when youre at Wrigley instead of in Malibu

    your only way out is if youre in vegas with a big nasty redhead (amber wears wigs in vegas)

    otherwise its dunzo cuz theres gonna be floods fire and famine

    all the roads gonna be packed and people are gonna jump on the boats in the marina and try to escape

    but the waves are gonna turn into tsunamis and is drowning the way you wanna go?

    the only way to survive is to be in Paris

    on top of old smokey

    cuz theres nothing you can do

    When I was 20 I had hair 

    I also had the strange ability of meeting people on busses in Iowa, becoming pen pals, and then visiting them in Switzerland where they would introduce me to their Korean roommates of whom I would discover what it was like to experience love at first sight.

    Never have I told the story of Ae and our unrequited passion and how it brewed at Versailles and later in Paris and in Lausanne.

    But someone sent me this photo and it reminded me of all of those feelings.

    Including the weirdness that I used black & white film back in the day.
