It is a hard thing to have a major epiphany and for it
not to faze you at all. As I sat on the Long Island Rail Road between
Jamaica and Hillside in a darkened subway car surrounded by the absolute
dreks of humanity, i thought
this is all wrong
This is not how people are supposed to act. There is something fundamentally
with the way people act in public. Too many people think all the world's
and are acting as if they're on one and they'll instantly be shot
if they let one iota
of their true personality
fragile, true, breakable
slip through. And then I'm back at the bars, the 21's century's auction block. How much for the slim brunette?
she's got a nice rack...cost ya two drinks and a smile
She worth that much? Maybe I can wow her with my knowledge of quantum physics
Isn't that, like, math or something?
Yeah, like math. How cosmopolitan you are, how
fashionable in your backless shirt and your capri pants. I want
to have sex with you because of how intelligent I've figured you are from
gazing at you from the other side of the room, and gee golly if you just happen to be wearing the skimpiest shirt possible that didn't factor into it at all, because I'm deep.
Who are you trying to fool?
No, really, I could tell you weren't shallow from the way I saw you holding
. Also, you're wearing all the trendy clothes. And
your winning smile
I love compliments, keep 'em coming lover boy...
Well of course I will, because I'm cool and hip and I know all the right things to say.
I just can't do this anymore; I can't come to this market and find nothing worth buying night after night...
Don't you want to meet people?
I will never meet someone I want to get to know this way.
There's always more where she came from...once I buy that
great shirt I saw five guys in the bar wearing tonight they'll all be flocking
at my feet again. Gotta keep hanging with the big boys...
I will NEVER meet someone I want to learn more about this way.
You talk too much. Why don't you just come dance?
I will NEVER do this again.
Hey man, there's this bar down in Union Square...
