i suppose i expected it to be effortless.
expectation vs. hope. like we talked about.

a windy night spent on the pier adorned me with a fierce cold and a parking ticket.
and an inability to drive to Seattle to see Lichtenstein and a good friend.





i haven't smoked in a few days.
my throat has become raw from inhaling too deeply.
but i can't help it.
it's not sufficient to just keep it in my mouth.

appreciation has become a catchphrase around here lately.
it seems so unnatural to think about life as a list of benefits and pitfalls. a chart to climb.

tonight as i passed the street lights,
the mirrors lying beside me on the cushioned seat were shining on the ceiling.
ambiance even in the car.
unexpectedly.

i worry about intention.
and about decency and poise.

"Sometimes we have to be judged by our one-offs."

dear kristina, i hope youre keeping well on the westcoast. the praries are the same as when you left them. and by that i mean flat and boring as fuck.

in response to your post, i think that you should watch out for a new paper i'm putting up concerning these very issues of responsibility, honesty, and human connectivity.

after all this APE stuff is finished i mean.
