too personal.

"booze takes a lot of time if you're going to do it right"'
-raymond carver

i'm going to buy that house
with the bricks and the yard
that's maybe in the woods.
reading raymond carver is good with beer.
if jake opens that bar i'll drink it there.
kelly is in the next room
reading her national geographic
like a better version of a new leonard cohen song.
when jeremy posts pictures of his 24 hour date with his wife
and i see that burger with the mozeralla stick on it
somehow now i think it's sweet and just right.

if i am curt with you
it's because of my shyness
but generally i'll like you
or at least give you the benefit of the doubt.

i have my darkness
but i don't really want to talk about it anymore
i've exhausted the subject in my youth,
2-5 years ago.

and if i see your face tatoos before you go live in the woods again
i might actually be happy.

maybe it's for the best i didn't get that job delivering donuts.

the night treads pretty quietly
in the dirty snow
with those brick fourplexes i don't own.
that dirty sewage in the basement
those dreams i'm sortof allowed to have
lying in bed with my lady
sylvan lady of leonard cohen songs,
but better.
i'll meet you soon
and perhaps we'll have something to talk about
when we get together.
