I’m being sued by the state

I am waiting for my case to come up
and I am waiting
for a rebirth of wonder
and I am waiting for someone
to really discover America
and wail
and I am waiting
for the discovery
of a new symbolic western frontier
and I am waiting
for the American Eagle
to really spread its wings
and straighten up and fly right
and I am waiting
for the Age of Anxiety
to drop dead

MAY 26

You know of old my ways of settling anywhere, of selecting a little cottage in some cosy spot, and of putting up in it with every inconvenience. Here, too, I have discovered such a snug, comfortable place, which possesses peculiar charms for me.

You made me want to be a saint. There’s got to be some other way to settle this argument.

We’re almost safe.

We’re almost safe.

Everything is yours

Everything is yours

I miss my banker.

Europe! Europe!
World world world
I sit in my room
imagine the future
sunlight falls on Paris
I am alone there is no
one whose love is perfect
man has been mad man’s
love is not perfect I
have not wept enough
my breast will be heavy
till death the cities
are specters of cranks
of war the cities are
work & brick & iron &
smoke of the furnace of
selfhood makes tearless
eyes red in London but
no eye meets the sun

I refuse to give up my obsession. If that means burning passport defecting to China so be it, but I’m giving America one last chance. Post empire is a good thing, and I’ve got Bret Easton Ellis’s boyfriend to prove it.

I just added Gary Shteyngart to my contacts.

I’ll wave to you from the back yard.
