passim_ 26 days: up, and so to bed (the miracle, the mirage)

THURSDAY

It’s not like it was a big effort, or that I felt I was failing. I’m very pragmatic. I can do what I can do, my life is my life. If I’m not Henry James, then, well fine. I could be the Rod McKuen of the curatorial world instead. Still, lists, half-page sentences. They were cool. I tracked stuff. But, you know, they end. Ended. That self I was making, that ‘I’ that was making that self, where’d it go? Where’d those people go? Car ride?

Thursday, duskish The miracle of you crawling out of yourself, face first. Unlocking those joints. Freeing those knuckles.
