Lots of things disturb me. It is, I think, worth having its own category in my life. 



Today I saw a man whose lips moved as he talked,

but his teeth remained closed.


I learned a valuable lesson: that things can

haunt you long after you


see them, like striped penguins or bloodstained porcelain

or jaundiced old white men.


Everything in life that disturbs you disturbs you

because it is a lie.

Written at 12:03 at night, in my office, in Agoura Hills CA, after watching the Oscars debacle and coming down from an Adderall high. The man whose lips moved but teeth remained closed while he talked was part of the Oscars ceremony but shall remain nameless, mainly because I don’t know who he was, or else I would out him to the world.
