Wrong, maybe

'Lingering in,
 what about the sweetness we knew
 what about what's good, what's true
 from those days?'
-Sun Kil Moon, lyrics
I'd love to think the haphazard style and miserable ambiguity with which I have gone about engaging those few I have hoped to keep close over the years has been successful. I am not convinced, however, whatsoever, that I could not have done a better job. The issue is, and has always been, that (and this has been a point I can be obnoxiously vocal about) it makes no rational sense to me to commit to three of the four sub-categories of nouns--i.e. 'persons', 'places', or 'things'--leaving only 'ideas', which beautiful, worthwhile, and infinitely entertaining as they are (and they are!), it is the prospect of sharing them with an Other, who genuinely understands them and us, that rejuvenates our efforts. Long story short, I revise and reserve my verdict regarding commitment to 'persons', pending further investigation.

Prisoner’s note

Once I cried so hard------for so long----- my face turned hot red----- and I suddenly burst into a fit of laughter.
I suspect that experience may have embodied the most important life lesson I have learned to date.

Mary: I want to change you.
Sean: Now Mary, that's called poly-morphing, and it's witchcraft.

are the worst things that happen to us–and I don’t know anything about the polite thing to do or the people with the gray hair–we don’t think too hard–or look too closely–because the illusion of an American Dream– is the the see-through-seed-we-choose-to-choke-to-death on– and people eat–pray–smoke–then they recall–the next day–yesterday– and its the same, day–after day. We thought, of course, that it would be different.
