i am an unrequited astronomer, pretend patient, gentle adventurer, pedal enthusiast, recovering calligrapher, occasional thespian and unfinished poet living in portland, oregon. contacting me via email is usually a good idea.
3:01 AM: can you hear me now?
sven & i were walking home under the clear blue sky of an early spring afternoon. we passed a guy walking on the other side of the street.
"hey, bitch!" he yelled.
i whipped around in horror to see him on his cell phone. he finished the rest of his sentence: "pick up. i know you're there." when he noticed sven & i had turned around to look at him, he smiled and waved us off: "oh, no! i wasn't talking about you!"
