And the train comes. And the amar layers the stones like lichen. How the best night of my life was the one. For a while it was easy as inventing an oak tree: start from the top and worry your way down the trunk. Or a new continent, emerging green and deserted after years on water, the simple rapture of the highway going coast to coast with more America than any of us ever wanted.
I guess you could say I love this city like I love prickly pears, which is to say, not very much, or only when I'm starving.

I'm afraid of sleep this week. Next week it'll be something else: mosquitoes, black holes, the snap of fireworks from one rooftop to another. It's like how I liked about getting sober: it was hard. I'd pretend it was a road trip, that I'd be drinking again on Saturday, and the Mondays and Wednesdays would tick by until it was Saturday, and I'd lie to myself again, it's too humid to drink today, I'll drink tomorrow , and tomorrow would be my mother's birthday, then Monday would arrive like an artless, triling wife.
This is how a year passed, with hundreds of lies, like that midnight walk in the French countryside dark, my sister giggling nervously, no streetlamp for miles, one footstep after the other, and the only way out ahead.
