"Hey, Harry! You know what? You need to go see a psychiatrist. You'd be a perfect candidate!"
Let's face facts: it's hell living with other people. I swear to God if I win the lottery I'm buying five houses and not telling one fucker in the world where they… Read full post »
I know what you're thinking: We've been through tough times before. It's all gonna work out in the end. Sure, we might be on the wrong path now but we'll straighten out, just like we've always done before. Have faith! Keep hope alive! Give the world a chance!

I never fail to cry at this scene
I'm not much for cut and pasting but here I make an exception:
"In my picture of the Night Café I have tried to express the idea that the café is a place where one can ruin oneself, go mad or commit a crime."
Vincent eagerly emailed these words to his brother. Once more the passions had seized him, lighting his eyes and/…
I saw a man this morning, his shirt of fine white linen, his belt of an animal killed to suit his purposes, his conscience borrowed from the world - never any better or any worse - his determination being of one to avoid the suffering of both truth and… Read full post »
After reading iamsurly's posting on etiquette, it reminded me of our own etiquette posting on the cinder block wall down here at the shelter. One thing that truly offends me is people's idea it's some sort of Lord of the Flies situation we got going/…
I saw in the paper where the trains that pass by where I usually sleep will be silenced. They're gonna put in some new technology or something that allows them to not need to blow their lonesome nighttime whistle. This is like a friend leaving me. That whistle gives me… Read full post »
Crap posting #2 for today:
Hey, gringo, over here!
Is there anyone who doesn't want to pick my wallet? Day labor employers, insurance people, women looking for a free ride - basically any time someone is offering you something it's to fuck you over. And the reason it keeps… Read full post »
You can read Bob Cesca's take on this as well over at HuffPo. He calls it a nightmare.
Show me one person in this country who wants goddam health insurance. There's not a fucking one!!!!! People want health care not health insurance. Welcome to the greatest pickpocket in histor… Read full post »
I don't take shit. I don't believe in taking shit. I believe taking shit is a sin, just the same as giving shit is because if you take shit then you are giving shit to yourself - and/…
She was the golden child with her streaming brown hair and richly tanned face. Her eyes were deep and dreamy, shining with the light of life. Shelley was but a teenager then; a prom queen, a cheerleader and everyone's sweetheart. Parents hailed her as a role/…
That will fix everything
A woman walks out of her son's room and closes the door to face his accusers.
"I don't care what you say. My boy is a good boy. He's doing the best he can and that's God's honest truth. You people demanding perfection have no… Read full post »
The Sengoku era of Japanese history (roughly the entire 1500s) was a time of a complete crumbling of the power structure followed by the great drive for final unification led by me, Oda Nobunaga. Right smack dab in the middle of all this came the/…
At first glance he seemed like any other disconnected businessman, absorbed in his paper, the world his oyster. He paid no heed to the black man with his grey flecked beard who shined his shoes - and likewise the shoe shiner to his customer. The pair could have hated… Read full post »
The New Yorker has picked up on this story giving far more details than the original Chicago Tribune article on which I based my first posting. I will warn you, it is close to being unreadable. I mean, it is just devastating and I had to start skipping over parts.… Read full post »
This is you: It's 1991 in the sleepy town of Corsicana, Texas (pop 25,000). You're asleep in your home when you hear your 2-year-old daughter screaming in the night. You wake to find the house filled with smoke. You tell your 2-year-old to run outside as you desperately enter… Read full post »
That was me you saw driving down the road with absolutely no place to go, imprisoned by the same tired landmarks, my head thrusting in silhouette screams, my hands gripping the wheel in white knuckle rage, looking for someone to run over.
That was me you saw spitting up blood/…
The unholy troika!
A few posts back Mama Lou offered up a joint and maybe she thinks I forgot about that, but let me tell you no two words capture the attention here in the shelter like "free weed". We decided to meet up at the Fort Worth Japanese Gardens,/… Read full post »
Waking in the sand, he remembered her vivid beauty
An involuntary smile comes to his lips
