two weird things that happened at the park

1. After I walked I was sitting at a picnic table reading a zine when two cops pulled up. They were driving a large POLICE truck over the grass. The one in the passenger seat said to me, “There’s been a report of someone shooting a gun here. Have you been here a while?” I […]

comics, shoulder pain

Today we kind of felt like crap the way we do the day after a trip. But we went to the park so Erik could run and I could walk. It was really nice to be out. I got cold and went to the car for the last few minutes of my reading / writing […]
