typhoid running circles over the keys, fingers lightly press characters from physical to digital. frosted like a scone, served with milk. a room littered with rain machines, half thoughts scratched out on unlined paper and forgotten, trinkets, toys, delightful things for all senses. a sense of unity in the chaos, all things, though separate, are linked together.. not just by photons and the usual forces, but by abstract ideas and interpretations of all the minds that perceive them. pathways in the darkness, collections, networks, opening doors usually locked with keys rarely found (the key is no key, remember?).

things to press, touch, feel, rub. things to eat, taste, lick. things to hear, listen to. things to smell, things that stink in their own individual ways. things to see, observe, watch. things to fiddle, interpret, change.
things that be.

silentbob I'm seventeen. Now i can read seventeen magazine and understand all the references. Now i'm old enough to get a car. Now i'm old enough to pay taxes.
She's seventeen too. she was born February 11th of 1983 and i was born october 28th of 1982. she could tell you the exact number of days we are apart, but i flunked math.

rachael so lean and clean at seventeen, my breast ached of the milk that begged to be realeased. My thighs were swollen tightly,, and sweat lurked upon my bones 000705

flexible so when do you turn 18? he asked me tonight.

uh hello? i'm not even 17 yet.

oh yeah.

that's april.

so you're really quite young then.

i guess.

but still, you've gotta come out for my 18th.

hell yeah, where you going?

*names small town*

*repeats in scathing tone*?

ok, we'll go into *city* afterwards if you want.

so when do you turn 18?

8 months.


it still seems bizarre to me that people work on age to work out if they'll be served alcohol, or get into the club, or be searched. it's all about the attitude baby, and that philosophy has served me well.
flexible oh and btw seventeen, having done minimal blather stalking of you in the past 10 minutes, you seem cool.

i bestow you with the title 'dude'.

feel special!
sigh If you're seventeen, follow your passions and suck all the pleasure and adventure out of life as you can, because ten years from now nothing will seem a tenth as exciting anymore. 061116
