Walked by a man I kinda know today who I don't see usually but he makes me nervous. It made me sad. Some people. I am so uncomfortable in this town. Everything in life is so disappointing. Sometimes I don't hear from my friends for a while. And I wonder if they're dead. They're out traveling & stuff. Probably dead. I dawdle around the sidewalks feeling bad in my body, sniffing the bummer memories that this town taunts me with. Everywhere is baggage, so many drags it's unbearable. I want to Travel to the American Desert where I can look around with wonder & the red dirt is magic. I go home and smell it in an envelope. Friends probably dead. Family is dead. Soul feeling dead. There's not a single key on my accordion that can bring any of that back. I'm drowning in the bellows.
