sweet baby jeesus. the seventh sign of apocalyptic real estate is upon us.

i just heard that an apartment (which hasn't even been built) sold for $10 million dollars today. it's a block 1/2 from my old 1 bedroom death trap in alphabet city (which cost me $1200, 10 years ago).
surely this can only be a sign that the end is near. 10 MILLION DOLLARS... for 3 bedrooms on junkie row? you've got to be bloody kidding me.

they have ruined my city.

once upon a time alphabet city was a place where you could count on three things: chickens in the streets, junkies picking you clean if you passed out on your stoop & swat teams in riot gear and tanks at least once a month breaking up some squatter scuffle... make that 4 things... i can't forget the ice cream truck that also sold heroin & coke. (i get twitchy to this day whenever i hear that song).

now it seems destined to go the way of men in prada slip ons & high end soaking tubs.
breaks my fucking heart.

i think what i see in you that is most suitable to my liking are glimpses of myself that are unsuitable for anyone else.

sweet things men do/a look at my future

today i was walking by the fort on my way to work & i passed a little old man of at least 85 who stood about 4'2". he stopped, turned to look at me, scrunched his face until it almost disappeared & thrust his hand into my face — furiously waving a very 'fuck you' finger all while growling & sneering at me with pure, seething hatred.

as i walked away i thought 'honey, i know exactly how you feel.'
it was the best thing to happen to me all week.
