I’m A Dreamer
“Some people are shits, darling.”
William S. Burroughs
“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
I am drunk,
The leaves are falling.
"One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple."
And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.
Happiness, I used to think, was a necessary illusion.
Minding Your Own Business
Here’s a secret: Everyone, if they live long enough, will lose their way at some point.
“They used to tell me I was building a dream
With peace and glory ahead
Why should I be standing in line
Just waiting for bread?”
—Bing Crosby, “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime” (1931)
