IT’S TOO LATE TO WISH I’D BEEN STRONGER

In Uncategorized on March 14, 2022 at 7:41 am

FIRST WE TAKE HOUSTON, WNBA Player Britney Griner Detained As Russian Troops Move Into Ukraine…ARE YOU READY FOR WWIII, Voting In America…BLOOD ON THE STREETS, Worth Ten Times More Than Gold…THANKS OBAMA, Staying Insured Below The Poverty Line…PERSONAL JOURNALISM, So far, so good, so what?…THE MESSAGE IS THE MEDIUM, For The Crime of Spectator Culture—Apple, Facebook and Internet Providers Will Be First Against The Wall……PUNK’S NOT DEAD IT JUST SUCKS NOW, Hardcore Punk’s Short Drift To The Right…STAYING SICK IN THE FINAL CENTURY, Personal Journalist Documents The Plight of Ulcerative Colitis…

I’m tired of the black magic of hack writing. Tired of myself, in case you can’t tell. Thus far, I’ve made an albeit low-paying career as an autocannibalist. I brought my dirties and was glad to. It gave us a charge and it felt like I was cutting through. And I was, too, but now this 1-br in downtown Austin is full of corpses. I’m the last one standing in here, besieged by regret and useless guilt as the clock on the wall says “Too bad” and I’m dropped (and blocked) by my Yoga teacher without explanation. The editor wants pitches for March but all I’ve got are these columns—600 words of surgery-on-the-self and public psychoanalysis with a cute and bitter sendoff. Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?
