the world is small and I broke my glasses on
the ground thinking about u

I am on my phone in a taxi in Copenhagen.
I went to a bar call called the Log Lady, like
from twin peaks. Soft Animals. I feel you. in
this taxi cab.

darling, I drank a lot of stuff and am very
very. I say hi to the pyrenees and you to the
cascade range. stop dont forget me or, no no
dont go, the slopes are steep and they face
away from each other

some guys at the bar were discussing if god
is real but I was just trying 2 kick back and
drink a beer. who said that thing, proof that
god exists? Wallace Stevens? the blackbird is
proof? anyway I am going 2 bed and will
think of things nested there. my goddess.
bird. bye.

it is sweet that you have a job and hands. a
voice across the ocean.

Bear with me. Imagine a nicer world.
Everyone sleeps and the trees are green. I
wished my eyes were green but am happy
yours are blue. The world is tiny for living
things. Bear with me for longer.
