Teddy bears are the biggest sluts.

I’m trying to figure out what it is my eyes see when I close them. There’s darkness, sure, but there’s also light. Electric flickers that run the spectrum. Blasts of blue and white that swirl and fade, but they keep coming back. And if I sit, blind and pensive, the blackness turns to full color pictures that are no different from open-eyed sight until I can’t distinguish what’s real and what is remembered. My memory is a projectionist playing movies in the dark for my idle body’s mind to keep itself entertained.

My aspirations aren’t financial. They’re experiential…

You’re wickedly hot.
It’s brilliant. Like blue firelight.
And me, a mere moth.

The future you is made now.

You watch the walls when you’re bored. The couples that stick to the posters in the hallway line to the bathroom. The taxidermy lit by candlelight, and the funny shadows that strain the paint in your imagination. The bar’s foot rail is too low for everyone but you and your daddy long legs. You’ve been to this joint, even if you haven’t. It’s always the same in every city. The place where the bar is high enough to hide you from those you want to avoid, and the only thing that keeps you drinking is the music your ears have missed since pool parties in the summer of ‘97. The din is dim and the fans overhead feebly try to fan the drunks at the rail who are disrupting an otherwise mint night of icy colds and heavily poured brown booze. It’s not you, it’s them. Or it’s you. Either way, your dollar belongs to the jukebox and there’s not much that disappoints. Huzzah!

I want to be so good at something that it makes me millions of dollars I can give away.

Dyslexia is the difference between fine arts and fire ants, but sir David Attenborough would tell you they’re one and the same, so it really doesn’t matter now, does it?

Either she does, or she doesn’t.
