Sample text

As I look at Alistair writing away in his hut thousands of miles away from the land where he grew up, how can I hope in my own writing to get at the knotty tendons of how complex our real life is? ) out of the tube and onto your trembling toothbrush (or tumescent red-purple cock). Like Pepé Le Pew forever caught in the grasp of a Warner Brothers cartoon laundry wringer, I am in trouble every time I start to write down what has gone on in my life. How can I describe the fall of even a single hair on Alistair’s forehead and hope to get anywhere near the ballpark of how tender and hard we can be with one another?

But my country, which I both love and hate, doesn’t allow such things. I need to tell this story or I will go crazy. When I write my story, I can howl out the rage I feel at both our medieval government and my own shortcomings as a man and a lover. I can draw attention to the injustice. As I write this story, it becomes a completely necessary act of looking at the past as a means of negotiating a more empowered and grounded relationship in an uncertain future. Each in our own way, Alistair and I are writing our memoirs of what has happened as a way of creating a future together.

Behind me in the picture are more words painted on the wall. These words talk about going to the beach and about my mom driving in our Rambler station wagon to the hospital to have me. I was born in Pasadena but then I grew up in East Whittier and slept under a picture of Dick Nixon. And came to NYC when I was nineteen. I love New York. This is my home now. I just had my twenty-third birthday. So I’ve been here almost four years now. It’s cold out tonight in NYC. Cream of Wheat weather. Gotta find a new boyfriend before it gets too cold.
