2011 summer

Und now let’s go back stage and fuck ‘zem.

1970s. Spectacular German blond Inge had invited me to the ballet.
She said that during the curtain calls, not whispering:
I think she wanted to be heard:
(and her and me admired, lusted for, along with the dancers).
(I bet we were.)

Widow. Ooo, I like your friend Paul.

Then Jan asked for an update. I said the neighbor hasn’t spoken to me again.
Ah ha, Jan said. So now your enemies have gotten to her. She doesn’t know what she’s missing.

You make love just like a woman.


A real Dillinger


My grad school buddy then explained to me that John Dillinger was supposed to be really hung.

Kiss my ass.

He doesn’t salute the flag! Don’t let him in your house.

Roy Loweke
to my beloved Jan when I first met her

See? Sabotage is normal for talented independents.
My life has been devoted to trying to help. Like Jesus, the help I’ve received in trying to help, though not quite zero, has been overwhelmed by interference, sabotage, recrimination …

Persons Notes
*Over time I add and subtract surnames here. I’ve just subtracted Carole’s surname, but add instead: Carole is one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever met: but she’s a friend, not a girlfriend, I’m her dance partner, not her lover. She’s my favorite alternate dance partner, one of my favorites ever. I think she too thinks it’s better to keep dancing, and love each other, than to get messy and risk everything. Jan knows I love her, Jan, best.
And there’s always a bunch of candidates for third. Hiding from trouble doesn’t mean trouble won’t arrive anyway.

Actually I’m very proud to frighten people however inappropriate the reaction. Michelangelo frightened people, when he was still very young.
Dickens had a housekeeper once too new to know not to interrupt him at work: she screamed, said she’d seen a monster. (She said his head was twice normal size: I believe her.)
(I’ve seen my own forearms swell up like Popeye’s, before my eyes. Why not Dickens’ head?)

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
