“ I think the soul must love the flesh
like we love fireworks,
for brief extravagance,
for lighting up the sky
with their disappearing. ”
But I guess ultimately what scares me about marriage is where do you find this person? You know a lot of times, most successful relationships, people meet through work, school, mutual friends.
But what’s most interesting to me is when people just meet in life, just randomly.
You know, I have a friend, he got married, I asked him like “Hey, uh, where’d you meet your wife?” He was like “I was leaving Bed, Bath & Beyond. I was looking for my car - I drive a gray Prius. I saw a different gray Prius, I thought it was mine, I walked up to it, I realized I had the wrong car, but I bumped into Carol, we started talking, that was that”. That’s unbelievable.
Think about all the random factors that had to come together to make this one moment possible - this one moment that changed these two people’s entire lives:
First off, this guy has to live in this particular town. Then he has to get a gray Prius. Then he has to need to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond. Then he has to go to that particular Bed, Bath & Beyond. Then there has to be another guy who also lives in town, also drives a gray Prius, also needs to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond, also goes to that particular Bed, Bath & Beyond at around the same time. Then they have to both park somewhat near each other, my friend has to leave before the other guy leaves, see the wrong Prius, think it’s his, walk up to it. Then the woman, Carol, needs to be near the wrong gray Prius for a million other random reasons. They bump into each other, they start talking, their entire lives are changed.
That’s the most amazing and terrifying thing about life.
It is, cause the amazing thing is that at any moment, any one of us can have that moment that totally changes our lives. You could be leaving the show tonight, bump into someone… it could change your life. You don’t know, that could happen.
The terrifying thing is… what if we’re all supposed to be at Bed Bath & Beyond right now?”

I went book shopping today. Went to the mall. Didn’t feel right. These people change their clothing so fast. It seems like every time I go out I see some color palette I rebloged. Seems things are moving faster in real world. Don’t care to keep up like my clothes. Felt so uncomfortable. Ran into ex’s kiss boy. They kissed because I have three uhauls full of Louis Vuitton baggage. Thought about writing a poem about that image. Don’t want to inflict that on anyone. I went to the isolated part of the mall my mom and I used to go to when we wanted pizza. One of the only places that hadn’t changed. Time moving too fast. Hope there not skeletons inside the Louis V baggage. Maybe there’s some good stuff. Keep pillaging. Mall made me sick. World too fast. I didn’t buy anything for Black Friday. Turned off all my lights and listened to tunes on iPhone Dock when I got home. Ansel Adams black and white photo book. Mom says she would like them better in color. Colors had me feeling dizzy at the wretched mall. I like the shapes. I can imagine the colors. King Krule sounds like black and white. Probably like a mountain scape. Aggressive sharp points, steady valleys.
