quick take from the notebook

Chicago to Istanbul (8 Jan 2010)

You write if as if something is happening to you. I am happening. This is a happening. Happy haze grazes these sentences. Do not trust goodwill. History decays. What is an exception? The cold duck wades into the pond. I don’t want to get out but get in. How do the flowers suffer? It has happened. You are crushed in my nasals. I’m saying hello to my heart. I’m an abducted alien. Kristy Thomas is not an illusion. A pencil is an extension. We are not prigs. This is not a game. I am still drinking you in.
