"Long Day's Journey Into Night."
It is a drama of layers.
A foot disconnected. Amputation?
The loss of self. It may itch
in the late hours when you can't
sleep, someone said, but you won't
be able to scratch. My father's
leg shattered in so many places--
thank's to the crack surgeon who
was stationed in a MASH unit in

I drank 2 ponds of jello shots
at a party on Saturday night.
I always had a cup full.
I wanted my lover to get lost,
there were so many beautiful

I am a dormant alcoholic.
When the movie was over,
A Porno flick about zen at the

I went through 10 cigs. I left the
house at noon and didn't return until

All of my friends are fag-hags.
Pretty straight men with red hair.
Very dashing and lithe, it drives
my girlfriends crazy. I am a bit
of a fag-hag...

At lease *I* smoke and drink.
At least the gay community hasn't
turned up their nose at me.
Steve said," They think I am making
like I am better then them for quitting."

Oh, by the way, "I didn't smoke, drink,
or do pot," he said, "but I'll do
hallucinogens whenever I can get my hands
on it." He kissed my love on the lips
when we left his side.
