happy mother’s day, moms
On the subject of the feminist business, I just never think, that is never think of qualities which are specifically feminine or masculine. I divide people into two classes: the Irksome and the Non–Irksome without regard to sex. Yes and there are the Medium Irksome and the Rare Irksome.

Tell me, what is the long stretch of road for if not to sort out the reasons why we are here and why we do what we do, from why we are not in the other lane, doing what others do.

I Entered a House
I have this tremendous fear of dying, tomorrow,
whether I stay or go. I have this tremendous
fear of suffering in death, whether I shave or
don’t shave, whether I kiss you, or you kiss me,
or no one kisses anyone for the time being.
I have this tremendous fear I entered a house
which forgot about me, and still forgets,
and the clocks are still suffering, waiting
for someone, anyone, to cross their legs, to
light a cigarette, to leave.
While, while. Anyone leaves. I had a dream
and now I can’t find it. I am sleeping in a kiss,
my clothes are sleeping. It was still
raining, I was
walking out of my shoes.
