we took turns breaking into tears

3-10-6


******


Bounmy, Phosy & Phady all bought me a cabin. They're going back to Florida. I had come over to say goodbye. And I broke into tears because of their generosity.


"Where is it," I asked. I was shown a Polaroid of one of them on the steps, sitting with Santa Claus. I'm so touched. They really wanted me to have my own house.

DK asks me what kind of protection I've been using. We just had unprotected sex.


"Abstinence."

I am looking for ways beside the same old writing it down that I can do "for art" --- something like this...

I was in a self-imposed poetry retreat in a little shack in the middle of a wooded swampland that's full of alligators. There's also a resident lion. They all only came out at night. My shack had no door, so any one of the animals could have entered. But only the lion ever did.


Once, a group of people walked by in the dark. I called out to them. I asked them where they are going. I hurried to join their group before I lost them to the dark.

"Why are you walking with us," one of them asked. I told them about the gators.

"I could never walk alone or far in the dark," I said.

DB's in same office building I'm in. He's working a though Wednesday. I visited him throughout the day. The receptionist at the bottom of the stairs paged me to tell us that DB & "friends" (whom he'd been anticipating) were due to arrive in two weeks. They must have just called... Kate Casa in a big headline story in The Reformer... she was exposed in some employer mismanagement of her restaurant. Some disgruntled employee thing... I told DB.


"Sorry I didn't tell you sooner." He could have broken down in tears.
