Aphorism #9

“The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet. . . The biggest price you pay for love is that you you can’t be on your own, which is always so much better. . . You have to be alone to develop all the idiosyncrasies that make a person interesting.”  Andy Warhol

Prospect St. Seattle, 1984


 Prospect St.  Seattle, 1984.  Girl-child leaning on a pole marked Prospect.  Languid like the curve of the cornerstone. Eyes downturned, passions curbed for the time being.  Loneliness leaving pock-marks on the present and the future firmament.  Meeting glamour with hands in pockets.  At some point there will be a sense of deja vu; this thing that I am doing I surely attempted before.  Is it a boon that I cannot remember my failures?
