Here I am back in LA. Lunar eclipse. Days of heaviness, dread. I don’t feel any of myself. It’s difficult to write. No narrative. The letters difficult to shape. Bruises on my arm. Short hair. New car. Reading Fire in the morning. Fire here at the counter of this café. Fire as a companion to my new insomnia, my out-of-body, out-of-time. New espresso machine, old jeans. This blue notebook. I don’t know where to begin, there is so much blue in my heart, so much water drowning behind my eyes I feel like if I start I’ll never be able to stop, drowning in all this blue. Forgetting to eat for an entire day and then two meals at once. Wine I pour but don’t drink. Coffee I drink but don’t feel. It’s time to move, all this blue. A new home, new walls, new streets. This morning I wanted to throw out every single thing I own. Blue. The new blue of him, him alone in there now that the Garden is locked down. Old blue of him, blue that froze my heart and which I can’t even feel anymore but somehow can’t seem to escape. This blue pen and the blue denim chore jacket I’m wearing, naked underneath.
