the lost man chronicles
21. as i age (again)

i realize principles are a matter of preference. nothing is certain, anything goes and everything is beautiful (if only you let it be). time is on your side —as long as you don't consult a calendar or wear a watch. love is a sucker and lust an everlasting gobstopper. you can be lonely with anyone, you can be fulfilled alone. i write, therefore i am. love is a four-letter word, compromise has ten. wisdom gets better with age, prejudice worse as you drink it. intimacy wears off—apply daily. liquid is best, because you can save money and still want more, but spend it and you begin to want less. a good scratch can be better than great sex.
