Why do you do these things?
I don’t fuck up with love sweetie. I love long and hard. I mean look at how I have loved. Endlessly. Breathlessly. But I fuck up sometimes. We all do.
Just try having a bit of consistency.
What so I can die bored? Have you advised on foreign policy my little James Perse t-shirt? I don’t think so
Know one will ever know or remember you. There won’t be a statue in Belconnen precious.
And for that we can all be thankful. I’m back already. I wrote this. So that was like four minutes.
Your rebound ability is….concerning.
Why aren’t you there?
Who do I work for?
Thrusting yourself into geo-political realities without a brief. I want to hang out with the boys and have a baby. Moses. No, Gwyneth has that. Milo Viggo. Hep Milo Viggo?
A child named after a disease. Excellent. Typical. Oh your Kate….naturally. No ‘Burn.
Joan of Arc syndrome.
Yes. You have a brief.
That’s what you all keep inferring but I am not convinced. You want me to be useful but invisible. In a Freddy Mercury sort of way.
Do you want to be visible and on trial?
What for? Crimes against fashion?
Just take your photos and be creative
Madonna with iPhone.
Think. Once you’ve seen the Syrians and the Yemenis you’ll actually understanding suffering
Shut the fuck up.
We are not asking you to write the definitive history on a country
No, those military sons of
They don’t have time for Bette at the Baths.
They need it.
Oh I am sure they do. I’ll be sure to put you on the desert entertainment roster. How about Norway? I hear you like the cold.
Only because it makes things that are already small that much smaller. Easier to dige
Hiding out here isn’t going to change anything
I’m not hiding. I’m waiting.
You’re hiding, like a purple elephant in a sequinned kaftan
I’m waiting. I’ll wait.
Do you really think calling out Joe is a good idea?
Magnificent idea. Fat Boy Slim in with the int crowd? Ergh. Imagine if you weren’t me. And you couldn’t do anything about the fact they were stuffing with you. I mean, just imagine that for five seconds. Little bastards.
You don’t have to imagine actually
They know me, I know them. They expect it. It is a robust relationship.
It’s different for me.
You are almost in another category. A far far away laaa
And what are you going to do to a kid who has stuffed up? We need get these kids out of jail. Not bloody create new crimes. Jesus fucking hell. While some of these twitter Cardinals were getting drunk and whoring I was studying if I remember
I am not sure Doris, you were 100% Day
Well Nelson, Tupac, I am not sure your little outfit is 100% clean
Racial violence isn’t picking Libertine over Celine
I have to walk in a hundred ugly uncomfortable shoes and you get to have kids and name them something exotic
Grasps hand If you don’t understand that we are trying to help you
There are millions of ways to help. You just have to be human and pick the right one.
Pulls hand and walks away
So the elections are close
Do you have anything to say
What, other than vote?
You don’t think
It isn’t my country
People need to feel that the world around them reflects them
The world is a complicate mish mash of people of various ideals and competing aims. Words don’t change lives
Really? And people on the ground working hard every day to help someone realise their potential and make their surroundings
So you think hip hop
Oh GOD I think I have expressed what I believe to be important and not only that, have tried to be a part of a world that I might never see. Beyond that, it turns into narcissistic demagoguery
So, what do we need leaders for?
Are we not done yet? I really really just need a month of pedicures
You’ve had your beauty fill darling you are maxed out on that score, try again.
What do you want me to say? Investigation takes
You have it.
I get tired from the inputs. They are too weird
Oh so strangers need to talk to you sincerely now
The mirrors are…odd. Inaccurate. It takes time.
Reality is inaccurate. People in dire circumstances don’t have your time.
Fortress survival isn’t a rave
I am myself.
You’re not going slowly because you are slow
OK I do things very slowly because every decision I make may be the wrong one. So I prefer to hang out in nature. Have I fulfilled my criteria today? Are the Catholics using this in a manual?
That’s not something you need to know.
I really don’t see how everyone knowing my life can add to anything. I’ve kept it as unremarkable as possible.
And you think this is a strategy?
Who cares about strategy?
Did. Past tense.
That is for me to decide.
It’s none of your fucking business. It is my internal life and it is precious. It is mine. This waves hand this is mine. If you own my movements and my internal thoughts just by the very nature of reflecting them into the world, then you can’t be too concerned with the sacred profane acts of every day. I do not take pictures of a newborn baby without consent and share them with the world.
Unfortunately, you still do not understand what this is about.
You are right. But I do know, based on this affair, you have the power to claim that everyone is a threat whose personal life is a public issue. And you and I know that is dangerous and wrong.
We’re protecting you.
Why then does it feel like a violation of all that is sacred?
You can talk to a few conflict survivors. I am sure they can discuss this with you at length. We’re done.
Fucking refugee camps
Oh look Theresa is tired
What do they do anyway?
Do you think the drug companies fund that shit?
Oh lord of mercy Saint Theresa has decided to save the great masses
I wonder how they pick the locale
As if you would know
The Puerto Rican’s would be so happy about Zika. Zika. then the hurricane. What is God’s name did the Puerto Rican’s do to anyone?
About the same as retirees in California.
It makes me feel like one of the blessed. Did you see that kid on St Jude’s? I couldn’t. I swear one day The Holy Goddess of Justice is going to revive those poor bastards on the periphery of America’s grandeur. It is going to sweep them up in its large hands and give them mountains and rivers and gold. Someone is going to look after that tribe. So help me god, it is going to turn.
They had MINT.
Starts with the Mother honey. It is all about the Mother.
How do you know?
Octavio Paz says so. And I am with him.
