unhinged we sat there on opposite sides of the minivan and his soul came down on me like a cool wet blanket. every word that came out of my mouth fell flat on the ground. i felt so stupid around him because his presence made me nervous. i just stopped talking sometime on the long ride home and stared out the window at the dead trees in the night. and i watched him out of the corner of my eyes smoking cigarettes; the way the open window of the van buzzed across the jazz. i wanted him. he had a sex face when he played the bass. his soul bounced in every note...his soul came from a totally different place than mine and it enchanted me. and i felt so infintisimally young next to him so i lapsed into silence, still feeling his soul vibrate to the hillybilly gyspsy jazz beat. 020126
