« Some Wild Embrace by Timothy O'Keefe | Main | My Emily Dickinson by Timothy O'Keefe »

May 03, 2012


I use the 100 bucks the pushy lady dropped to enroll my boss in a 20th Century American History course.

I use the $100 for a bus ticket to Red Lion to pick wild mushrooms with
my pal, Laura, then have a great dinner with lots of mushrooms.

That's even better!

Magic mushrooms, I hope.

The last time I did magic mushrooms--in Santa Cruz, of course, with a woman
named Karen--I crapped for 45 minutes (non-stop), then listened to a Donovan album for seven hours. Could we just have some good wine?

Jesus, Jim--is that you? TMI, man.

on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
