CELEBRATING so MANY birthdays AT ONCE LIKE a SITCOM SHITHEAD WHO BETS ON A HORSE TO WIN NASCAR. / by Dante Sacomani

 

today i received a text message from an unknown number that asked me, ‘where is the paper bag that hides the liquor’? I replied that i didn't know, but added i believe the best kind of life is one with nothing to hide.

The reply-is-being-typed bubble popped up and then shrank down again. I closed my eyes and opened them in a blinking motion. I decided to read and interpret whatever response came through next as cosmic good advice. But the bubble stayed shrunk down and didn’t come back. i am still waiting for the message but i think nothing is coming.
