It's running so slow. I forgot how pampered I was w/Keun's computer. I've removed as many programs as I felt safe I could remove, but there are still a lot of programs running in the background. My modem connection is high, but web navigation is slow-I assume it's all the programs that I can see running in task manager. I'm not sure what I can get rid of...I'll probably just have to wait until I see Keun or Akash.
This is the most I've written in months.
I wanted to go to a poetry reading Tuesday night-Ed's suggestion-but Ed came home grumpy and didn't want to go anymore. I should have went without him. Even if the vast majority of poets sucked that could have still led to inspiration.
I wrote a poem the other night...or at least I tried to write a poem. There was a horrible band on stage at the
Elbow Room in Ypsilanti and I opted to write instead of listen.
Broken-eyed coffee girls
piss me off
In a room full of tea-drinking whores
a shot of jack in between my teeth
I resent feeling like the intellectual.
I know, it's not very good...and I think I've ripped off Charles Bukowski-I'll have to read through his stuff again to make sure.
At least I wrote something.
I should rewrite Outis Hickus...Kenny Baum's story. I half-assed it the first time.
Damn this keyboard's tiny.
