notes from OBITS ETC.

But it's not like that for me; age is not simpler
Or less enjoyable, not dark, not whitewashed.

each morning i gaze in the mirror

'wake up old man'

* * *

don't talk about sex to rich
                         he's like our dad

* * *

here's a place for you
        look at the photos
                  the texts between

how will you conduct your life
between now and then

Hi Richard,

These are great. The last one in particular is apposite to the writing life.

hello michael! thank you for your generous liking. these are a nascent sequence about i think death, sex, text and desire. and aging. i hope to incorporate quotes and found texts with my own fragments. and take it as far as it will go.
