thanks for the memories


The worst thing about getting dragged thru the gravel tied to the back bumper of a departing woman’s car is that she’s spinning that gravel in your face.

How does this happen? When you give love you give power, that’s how.

What you’ve got to be alert for when you give love and power is whether there’s love and power coming back at you. Tokenism is not love, nor is hot sex or sweet talk.

Down under the crash-and-burn wreckage of romance, someone may still be alive, years down there in the twisted dark metal, sucking air thru a pipe.

You bide your time, waiting for the right moment to slap down some payback, so you can watch her bounce thru the gravel.

Consider this part of the transition back into the fray, like the cigarette burns on your arm.
