tucson late afternoon trash & dirt blowing everywhere, a monsoon that couldn't come yet double rainbow & trains always trains. it's that time of year

when in order to be supremely happy i buy the 6 dollar vogue sept issue. i want it all, esp the new chanel bag & well, everything really sans hugo boss which is not me, uh-uh.

wed / comatose / it's too hot to believe (& that's the first time i've said that all summer...)

yeh it's 108 in tucson. chuck george just stated on kold that it's 10 above average. it feels like 124. bloody hell.



i like this illustration. it's called neon queen which is what i do not feel like at this moment but long to feel like. what better feeling than neon queen? i'd say different i imagine if i were trapped behind the bar...for sure i would.

officially done w/ teaching 3 different classes in 1 day. i taught 101 at the U, a 102 at Pima (80% past students so very really nice), & a 101 at Pima. wooooo. a bit tired.

i still want fried chicken meaning i'm going to the gym. no emotional eating, no emotional...ugh. i really want some chicken deep fried.

tues / just got back from a show

just got back from seeing calexico back amos lee at the fox. dd got me a +1--thanks, d. was fun.

mon / all i needed was some bad tv


[i refer to this photo as poet in academia; i refer to this as laura little is a unicorn as a girl with a healer's hands; i refer to the sundown on the stones, tide jerk her belly back homeward; i refer i put my feet there not long ago; see yield, refer to the day; i confer that's a unicorn hanging on my wall, may the horn always rival the bulls; i refer thinness, her motherless, her waist; refer, seek, she, the winter, it's ever-coming.

day une of classe today at the U. Biking from 22nd (20 mins) did see my whole dress sweated through. remedy. post-class i rode over to mms & chained my bike in her front yard which is like a mile from the U. i will not sweat through all of my clothes in this desert while dressed all orderly for my class. noooooo.

i had lunch w/ mm & dd & ana who have been studying for like 10 hrs a day for their end of the third year med school test. then i did business stuff when i wanted a nap. then i went to the gym when i wanted a nap. then i got sushi when i wanted 3 fried chicken breasts & spicy mashed potatoes & biscuits from popeyes. life!

tues / bridgetown in transit to beach today / tucson tomorrow / i might have rabies

let's see. abraham smith visited bridgetown, aka country heaven. we went to granny's to a fish fry & planned our book over jura, islay scotch on the front porch, the frogs were truly loud.

mrs emily, the lil ole lady down the dirt road, had me get up a tree yesterday to get one of her feral kittens down that had somehow wedged itself in there real good with a foot that appeared to have been knawed on by a raccoon. the lil sucker bit my finger up real nice. had to take him to town to the vet. he had maggots in his lil eaten up foot & his pelvis was broken. they had to put him down. me & mama both cried for hours. anyways. i could have rabies, should know by tomorrow. my finger is humongous. so i got another tetanus & some antibiotics & stuff.

sean & i ate at danny's for lunch. i have the cat cave just now constructed in the car. mama & i drive to the beach to stay tonite, fly out to the desert tomorrow. stoked. have missed my peoples dearly.

i so hope i dont have rabies.
