Today I ate fruit & yogurt & then went to Pompeii. It's weird to face Pompeii & see the docks to which citizens tied their boats, with grass growing where the tide once was, & realize that you're standing where the sea once was. And you're standing on a hill. But now the see has been pushed further back, by ash & tsunamis.
Then I came back & listened to this song:
Slightly corny but then it saves itself.
And then this song:
Arthur Russell, man, he kills me:
Lizards jump out of my way when I'm on an island you can only get to by train. When the sky is white it's milk. I feel guilty when occasionally I desire a more glamorous life.
