Oh fuck, I wuv you.
Neil Hilborn - “The Future”
The worst thing about being naked—and then
being hit by a car—is that road rash
is a problem for skin. Why was I naked
in the middle of the road at noon? I am glad
you asked, imaginary other half of this
conversation! I have no idea! Some characteristics
of bipolar disorder include dissociation, hallucinations,
and fugue states, so sometimes I wake up in places
I didn’t go to sleep!
So. There I am. Nude. Splayed out on a car like a slutty
chicken, and I’m screaming about the government
conspiracy to take away my feet. Not my real feet.
Just my brain feet. I’m about six inches away
from the concrete when I realize, in slow motion,
like the exact opposite of a rhinoceros attack,
"This is not how I imagined my life would turn out." When I was young, I broke
both my ankles jumping off a roof because
I was sure a cape would enable me to fly. My parents
attributed this to my strong imagination. Last year,
my therapist called it a delusion. I fail
to see the difference. Also, I really can fly
and see the future and make stupid people leave
coffee shops with my mind. Forty-three percent of the time.
Sometimes I see people as colors. For instance, this guy
right here is purple, which means he just got a promotion.
Or a blowjob. A blowmotion, if you will.
"Mt. Talamitam Escapade" by Lemuel Paule
* Yesterday, February 25, 2014. We went to Mt. Talamitam in Nasugbu, Batangas. I was invited by my mentor/maestro and surprised him on that day that I will attend on the activity even if I have work yesterday *yah we’re not included on the special holiday for EDSA Revolution*, I didn’t go to work, but I ask for it. Anyways, the activity was fun, super tiring. Together with my orgmates in Don Bosco Kalikasan we started a new mission in Mt. Talamitam by planting Mahogany seedlings. Not just a one day event so-called “picture planting”, but a promise of reviving this mountain just like we did to Mt. Manabo.
