I have it when I’m not with it then I lose track, looking back it was always thus, someone said, is it the hippocampus? now how the fuck would I know the answer to that? I take a squint at the small print, don’t see any clues, they’re just trying to confuse me like they always…

First timers

What were we like her and me? were we pulsating with energy as we broke through the rainbow? watching the others watching the grass grow? what were we like? On the first rung behind the gymnasium where she taught me to climb. and in no time at all there was no time at all. I had a diary to…
