I hate myself. I could be me at thirteen or eighteen, but I am fat, six, deeply aware that we are given the world and each other and no wonder we're lonely.  We're alive. And Oswald, that fox-faced, want-faced man makes a sudden deep O with his mouth in our living room because he has not fallen down yet. It is the astonishing first kiss of a bullet in the gut.  Coyote walking on air a thousand feet above the loco canyon, Oswald has only to look at the camera, look down, and he will accomplish what falls to us all to do, sooner or later.

Page 53 Honeymoon Ocean, 1939 There is a way the mind shimmers up and your mother finds it by counting naked ladies on a lampshade. They're passing gold balls between them endlessly, wavey as mermaids with knees crooked in some attitude of pleasure found only on the boardwalk, Wildwood, New Jersey. Outside, regular stars are plinking a music cold as bedsprings. The Atlantic, honeymoon ocean, bends forward to brush its hair. Salt drifts along the floor in patterns gritty as lace; it will never be over, then is and he rolls off, big dumb galoot.
