..that woman up north

*SR: And he gave me three years for the RV, three years to have my own room. Turned out to be four months short, because he got busted, the whole place got busted, and they kicked me out, the cops. So I was there for two and a half years, just plodding around with the crack hookers and I started writing there. Writing Gagaku again, so I was writing letters to that woman up north.

she sent him a birthday package…inside was a brand new CD player and four rare shinto CD’s..she sent him a tim  buckley collection…pens…stamps…mahler…envelopes…tape…the ever-important roll of scotch tape…he thanked her for the supplies..he blessed her sappho ass…and sent her gagaku.  she called him friend, old poet, and asked for nothing in return……

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
