I've come to terms With the worms Inhabit my skull
I feel blessed By your test Though now I'm dull
I love your lips And your hips But I cant stand your soul
Will you ignore Will I score Or will you move the goal
Winter spring summer fall I hate anything at all Spring summer fall winter Clues, unsubtle hint-her Summer fall winter spring Would you wear my ring? Fall winter spring summer Sorry I am such a ******.

"doing funerals....getting the bunting, hanging the bunting...step by step...
When it became a myth, the whole event...
people were terrified, crapping their pants...a woman in the lobby...no legs...her face...like someone took it off with a saw.
Why did I survive?
...None of 'em were ever found. Not even a tool.
I didn't see victims. They were dust... When the wind blew, you couldn't grab them.
long spears of glass...Huge panels turned into shards...a piece of window, a small piece....It's right here in my hands now.
...can't look at a plane landing"
Not long after Sept. 11 I was getting stopped by tourists on the subway asking for directions to "Ground Zero." I was incredulous. I avoided the area until it was cleaned up. Now of course it is a memorial and an ongoing construction/development area.
