What can YOU say in six sentences?
I send you cards, Christmas, Get Well, Be My Friend, that reveal my heart like a sign hanging in a loan company's window, unblinking, but saying OPEN even when it is not. Where can I find you on this dreary November morning? At noon, or thereabout, a few of us are heading out to visit the Space Needle, and then I will have an overview of all the miles I walked yesterday, only to return to my cavelike room emptyhanded. Last night, I heard something on the TV which sounded like, "Anthony needs a recharge," and I thought, "What a coincidence, so do I." Here, where it is dark most of the time, and we do dinner early, I often eat alone, then read for a while until I get tired, but stay awake smoking until my cigarettes run out, and drinking coffee until dawn, when I can go down, unshaved, unshowered to the AM/PM to stock up on more supplies. If other friends did not suggest noontime excursions, I would most likely hibernate through winter, or walk until my feet dropped off, or continue writing out cards with ineffective messages waiting for a true reply.
