Go.Get.Gone

three days & hitching’s the scheme. found a nice cruiser frame ditched in the bushes & rebuilt it. it’s blue, and the brand’s apollo, so i’m calling it moon mission. i rock it (rocket?) all over town. it’s amazing how easy it is to live off the streets here. so far i’ve got a whole new wardrobe (snazzy checkerboard vans kicks, jeans, swanky shirts & american apparel hoodies, skirts, & nearly a calf-length leather coat…but it was too small). the moon bike, some art supplies, & all the food you could ever need. live two lives. it’s like holding your arms out, walking backward across the burrard bridge late at night. fence, fence, fence, and then….black water. “we’d rather you didn’t, but we’ll drive you to the very last stop, and if you get out and walk without looking back, we’ll understand.”

If you think about it, there’s all kinds of strange behaviors in the world around us. Think about something like mountaineering and mountain climbing. If you read books of people who climb mountains, difficult mountains, do you think that those books are full of moments of joy and happiness? No, they are full of misery. In fact, it’s all about frostbite and difficulty to walk and difficulty of breathing—cold, challenging circumstances. And if people were just trying to be happy, the moment they would get to the top, they would say, ‘This was a terrible mistake. I’ll never do it again.’ (Laughter) ‘Instead, let me sit on a beach somewhere drinking mojitos.’ But instead, people go down, and after they recover, they go up again. And if you think about mountain climbing as an example, it suggests all kinds of things. It suggests that we care about reaching the end, a peak. It suggests that we care about the fight, about the challenge. It suggests that there’s all kinds of other things that motivate us to work or behave in all kinds of ways.

I don’t know if it’s patriarchy or my deeply ingrained stripper instinct to please, but seeing a 65-year-old man working his fingers to the bone for chichi hipsters moving into Venice Beach and snapping up the real estate, a 65-year-old man with three ex-wives (one used to be a ballerina) and a kid he never spoke to growing weed someplace up in Humboldt County—well, if you care about that man, you want to see that man get laid. I’m not sure why sex is sometimes a gift we want to confer on those we love, but it is.

It’s not about what’s lasting or permanent, it’s about individual voices coming together for a moment. And that moment lasts the length of a breath.
