Audi SUV
hair pulled back tight
Gucci sunglasses maybe D&G no Chanel
carrot skinned
chatting on your celly cell
I see you
I'm behind you
in my rented Pontiac.

I don't have the time.
I don't have the money.
I don't want to be put on drugs.
I don't want it to be my excuse.

When I was 17 and a Young Romantic I would take frigid showers in the summers to Feel Alive. Before that shower, upon waking, I'd zip to the back patio, sit cross-legged in my sun-bleached corduroy musty Modernist chair, and breathe in the happiness of my East Van alley. Now I'm almost 30 and as soon as I wake up I check e-mail.

3.31 in the morning and I'm watching YouTube videos of John Cage's 4'33".

I don't want to be entertained. I want to be engaged.
Entertainment flows only one way: from performer to spectator.
Engagement flows both ways: from performer to spectator to performer.

I almost ran into my ex-girlfriend today. In a shoe store. I don't think she saw me as I buried my attention in women's heels and pumps because my girlfriend and her mother were with me.

So this is what it's come to? One year together of sharing each other, doubting one another, meeting our families, having copious sex that dwindled... and now we're worse than strangers. Because with a stranger in a shoe store, I wouldn't turn away.
