then don’t write..

if you seek-out normalcy…a solid career path on this commerce paved super-highway called America…then don’t write…

a want of security…toast-n-honey at midnight in a breakfast nook after making love to a wife while kids sleep down the hall in a safe and stable home…then don’t write…

cars that get good gas mileage in the city and highway…a Sunday suit to wear at church…eternal optimism now and forever…an ability to ignore the fall of Rome…then don’t write…

Mike Ramirez once told me in a Chicago bar with pictures of Joyce and Beckett on the walls…,David…you won’t write anything ever worth a shit ’til you’ve suffered…

man was he right…
