I am a corrupted romantic.
I used to fall in love with people: faces in crowds, jokes in scripts, the tone of a voice. An all consuming insatiability. My body handles emotions that could suffocate others. My mind forms them into complex narratives wasted on someone so drive-less.
Too much sh*t to hand-write it all. Too “properly socialized” to submit “messy work.” Too sad and angry to think about what happened to my dreams. Too overwhelmed by the pics on this site. BUT… Too defiant to lie down! Too hopeful to give up! Too POSITIVELY CERTAIN that a new world is possible! OCCUPY, OCCUPY, OCCUPY—Anywhere & Everywhere! And STAY, STAY, STAY—social change takes TIME! Love, light, and peace to all of my like-minded brothers & sisters everywhere!!!
From 2006-2009 I owned a business with 12 employees. I closed my doors in 2009. I lost my home in 2010. I lived in my truck for six months. Now I rent a tiny room. I have no health insurance.
While my daddy lived in his truck, I lived with my mommy in an apartment her friend let us live in. She bought my food with food stamps.
