says it and he is correct as motherfucking usual, I know it is true but can grasp it only as
abstract future truth
. He is living it and looking back to tell me it truly only gets worse and faster and more out of control and it scares me to think time could go any faster than this.
I want to grab onto him and say
If we both try I bet we can hang onto time, twist and warp it for our own selfish uses, I bet no one will ever even notice.
Let's break some laws.
Come on try with me, let's freeze and hoard at least this moment for longer than we have a right to. However the movie is starting so I do not get all dramatic.
Later, when I am not even trying, it happens. It is like a lucid dream where you have to
be very very careful not to fuck it up
paying too much attention
. I realize in time, before I ruin it. It's nothing really, just us across a hawaiian-flower tablecloth laughing and eating greenbeans with our fingers. Something blessedly far back in my consciousness says, Here, have this. This moment is a long one.
Make it good.
And it is.
Later, going to
separate cars, across a wet parking lot
I say Thanks for the movie. Skyler says And dinner,
my company. That's true, I say. Thank you.
I like it!

You never know which experiences will last longest in memory
These are the only minutes you'll ever have. Take good care of them.
Why are all senses but vision abstract?
Youth is wasted on the young
$40 billion buys a lot of cell phones
Truths of Driving
Time appearing to accelerate with age
Call me a berry-picking, pony-touching star-marveler
When life gives you lemons, grab it by the throat and demand better
So little left to say
I bought an orange, but it was a grapefruit
perhaps it is my memory that is elastic
I don't think she even knows that I make her smile
you are as smooth as
