this shit is all over the place because of the times op ed piece yesterday. who knew when i was lounging on canal street drinking beers at dusk in the closed off street last summer that i was in the heart of twenty something douchey rich kid anti-woke hipsterdom. if only they reviled the skateboarders half as much as i did we could have found common cause over a pilsner, as long as they were buying. i mean, i listened to my neighbor drone on about soil for the garden im sure he still hasnt started for a free beer, im sure id be delighted to hear how stultifying life is among the "avant guards" in bed stuy. is that where they are now? i draw the line at converting to catholicism. im soaking in it right now up here. there is nothing transgressive or transcendent about transubstantiation.

On the Color Wheel
Red and Green
But the technical term is Complimentary Colors
They call across the Spectrum
And vibrate in one another’s presence
In a time of too much opposition
Remember how Red and GreenResolve their conflict
Conjoining as the
Colors of Christmas
