thoughts near 25

we went on advancing

cutting new angles 

experimenting constantly and who cared

where we landed or when

ten days a week they demanded you 

show up exactly on time wear a suit 

show no thigh and why? 

was it not enough

to be loving unconditionally doing

life differently

demanding impartiality 

insistently

life @25

1998. love life lacking. movement from ocean side of florida to inner city chicago. dreams of cultural context to inspire, a wealth of journal entries in a leather bound book given me by my brother. i ride on two wheels manufactured by japan. running away from something, i don’t know what. i haven’t learned anything outside of books. i hunger for the streets. i don’t know why. i had it really good. privilege. soft and sea bound. i am about to get what i asked for and get my ass kicked @ 25. willingly.
