August 13, 1999


Aware now that something is upon, hesitate to be where I don’t belong, frozen while in step how could I be so wrong? For here has stayed too long, but to leave I’m not so strong.

(Not a Limerick)

An impending feeling of doom takes hold of me and cancels any future accommodations that I might have on reserve. My chest has been experiencing sharp pains on the right side and it is scaring me. I have been abusing myself.  8/16/99

Sharp like a red-headed porcupine one used to say, on a day like today under the ray of the sun laughing ourselves undone.
