Live with an open mind or die young.

I think McNitt could have a big day today.

The simplicity of shallow sets can be useful enough at times for survival and shit, but in a life, the idea of a life, it's horrible. You see that you already faded out a long time ago.

The turn signals on those cars from the early 70s made vowel and consonant sounds, to me I heard 'Lincoln, Lincoln, Lincoln, Lincoln...' with a hold on the middle consonant , an up-down 2-pitch pattern. I was 4, I still never heard of the President but I'd heard people talk about the town, in the phone book too where they had all the towns within a few hundred miles. -- OK, I like that, that's good. But today let's try to talk about something that's more focused on what we discussed, back at the start, something that fits better in our outline.

"I got in a car, rode with evil
Evil evil
Lookin at town ignorin the statues
Jumped in back and
Made us sandwich
Made me afraid so i missed half of livin,
Livin livin
Made me believe in the way life's done
Believed my pride proved in history books
And people excite me today lost their value value
Road got wider, sun scorched landscape
Life got skinny,
Skinny skinny
I asked questions, evil said it
Said im hedging,
Hedging hedging
Waiting for my angle cushion my impact
Said i dont empathy, short term sympathy
Hang my creds on a fluffy collar  
Life as shallow as the edge of a dollar
Wish i could troll all,
Wish i could sequence
Can't do both em its one or the other
Spend half a lifetime choosin which one
Loose half a life on a choice of a branch
That ain't got branches, aint got choices
Ain't got nothing but voices
Tellin you shit about you ain't hurt.

Over easy eggs on a giant enchilada. In the diner that was most crowded AND biggest I ever seen. My waitress was my stereotype, overflow of food and obscenity of wet eggs on top of a whole other meal was a stereotype of excess and freedom. I couldnt eat it all, no way. I took the rest to go, I tried to save it for awhile but tossed it next stop, it had been nothing but an exercise, no value in the arc of a drive long enough for fantasies to flatten back to their original shallowness"  acrylic on canvas
