Notebook, October 8, 2021

Oh friend:

Here’s wishing you a nap that no one can see inside the blue lamp of imagination. When one has this he’s never lonely.

I used to steal my neighbor’s newspaper when I was a graduate student in Iowa City. He was a fascist and not ashamed of it. I couldn’t decide if I was helping him or harming him by my thievery. Then I realized I was just a coward like everyone else.

The Romantics felt pain was necessary for desire. La belle dame sans merci…” Silly stuff. But it sells well.

**

Alter-ego can’t we ride our horses side by side?

**

The whole body oscillates when its autumn.

**

Yes. Keats is silly and I said it. How I love him.

Saul Bellow:

“That being oneself and not others should be deplored as a condition of misery is the most unambiguous sign of the triumph in the individual of the ideology of mass culture over spiritual independence.”

**

I’ve never wanted to be anyone else. Hey you! Stop following me around.

Preliminary human question:

How long
Do you last
After eating
The crenelated
Popsicle mushroom?
