parked vehicles. I try not to think
of all the books I will die not having read.
I am now thinking about it.
Likely, I will never finish The Scarlet Letter.
I like the underlying themes more than the
book itself. The prose is heavy.
The sky is blue,
I am nestled under shade
in our automobile in a northwest
nook of Portland.
Windows cracked, breeze and bicycle wheels scoring my
sweaty children slumbering
I have never watched Gone With the Wind.
I am tired, to think about four hours spent leading
up to "Frankly my dear..."
Maybe I will watch it, after everything else I need to see:
Kurosawa + Truffaut + every Sesame Street episode ever
Realistically, I will never watch Gone With the Wind.
Georgia though. I really need to visit Georgia. Savannah.
Next year, next year we will holiday in Savannah,
if the timing is right. Which it likely will not be.
I am glad I didn't know the ending before I saw The Sixth Sense.
I wish I could see The Game for the first time again.
That's impossible though, if I remember correctly.
There is a noodle company down the block.
It is called "Noodle Company."
Or maybe it's "Noodle & Company."
I wonder if I will ever eat there.
It is a possibility, a slight one.
It is likely that I will never eat at
Outback Steakhouse. It is also likely that
I will spend little time in seafood restaurants.
I do not eat seafood, and it is a general assumption
that I could get a better salad elsewhere.
I like George Orwell. I like his precision.
I understand that BMW makes precision motorcycles.
Perhaps I will purchase one, someday.
Likely not though.
There are many bicyclists whizzing past my window.
I like bikes, especially ones with three wheels.
Maybe someday I will invent a bicycle with just
There's a strong chance I won't though.
I see a lot of spandex-clad bottoms hurtling past.
On Thursday, I saw a lot of spandex-clad bottoms.
At a concert, an of Montreal concert that
was music and ballet and theater and Ringling Brothers.
Maybe I should become a rock and roll star.
First, I should get in better shape,
for the spandex, and maybe
learn an instrument.
I'm going to do it tomorrow, for sure.
Today is a nice day to listen to the bicycles.
