matthew:

laughter, sun, and exercise.  i need more of all of these.  i have plenty of love, but that does not help burn any calories when my wife is somewhere else.  plus, i couldn’t drag all of my gym equipment to america.

regardless, i had a lot of all three yesterday, and i need to find those moments more often before i have a fucking stroke.

balls,
pete

Matthew,

I really enjoy the glob of resin that occasionally forms in the neck of my bong.

My dear friend, Matthew:
I lament that you are bald,
but have you tried hats?

Fine Young Cannibals
had one or two catchy songs,
but their name was weird.

Elephants don’t care.
They will take your lunch money
and poop on your shoes.

Think of your fellow man.  Lend him a helping hand.  Put a little love in your heart.

And the world,
Pete

Matthew,

Today I walked to the end of the dock where I am staying and I smoked a joint.  I turned on my music, and I took in the scenery, laughing about how unusually easy my life ended up being.  I mean that, too.  I used to think life was so fucking hard.  Maybe things were hard for a while, but I’m sure my anger and my undeveloped frontal cortex probably didn’t do me any favors.

So many decisions fall on you in your 20s, and you’re just left to clean up the fucking mess after that.  If you’re rich, maybe somebody cleans up for you.  If you’re hot, maybe you get out by being a trophy spouse.  Then again, some people make better decisions.  Some people get places through working hard and having goals.  Not everyone is self-sabotaging.

Tiptoeing around my hometown the way I have been doing has been nice, but it has also solidified that I need to gather myself for the next big play.  There’s no place for me here long-term.  This is a nice, padded cell, so whenever I’ve worked out all of my shit I’m going to re-enter the world and try and start my future with my patient mermaid wife.

Okay, stupid.  I love you.

Pete

Bill, stomping around
Makes this stoner quite nervous.
Let me toke in peace.

A weaselly face.
A well carved out overbite.
The chinless wonder.

Chad is pretty cool
He has daughters and a wife
But still keeps it real

Big Carl keeps it real.
Chuck Norris calls him at home
When he needs some help.

This dude, Lyle, he’s cool.
I thought he was a penis,
But I was a dick.

And Bryan Bailey?
He’s a pretty weird fucker,
But I still like him.

you can’t control them
but you can control yourself
save your energy

staring up at me
parliament light 100s
was this a haiku?

cold brew, cold brew, yeah
i’m awash in its goodness
black nirvana mug

i pooped outside once
i ate too much granola
right before a run
