got my hair cut, decided to shave too.
damn I’d look good with a mustache.
shaved that off, too, though.
Alone With Everybody
the flesh covers the bone
and they put a mind
in there and
sometimes a soul,
and the women break
vases against the walls
and the men drink too
and nobody finds the
crawling in and out
the bone and the
for more than
there’s no chance
we are all trapped
by a singular
nobody ever finds
the city dumps fill
the junkyards fill
the madhouses fill
the hospitals fill
the graveyards fill
- Charles Bukowski

— Andre Dubus, A Father’s Story

You guys probably wouldn’t realize it but:
a) I cleaned and moved my room around.
b) I’m ridiculously disoriented due to a bout of vertigo I’ve been experiencing for the past 28 hours.
