Dangerous Compassions


Leaf blowers, chainsaws, hedge trimmers, and most motorcycles are all things I need to get away from when they’re making sounds. Today I was at the park and a worker had a very loud edger. He was coming nearer, so I got up and moved to a different part of the park to finish the letter I was writing. Just now the weekly yard workers were here. It doesn’t last long.

Today it’s quite warm. It’s been getting up to 80 in the apartment. We haven’t used the air yet this year. I wore shorts yesterday. But tomorrow it’s supposed to rain.

My ex bestie M was supposed to come see me today, but she called yesterday to cancel because she had car trouble that got solved but prevented her from doing other stuff she was supposed to do. Anyway, next week.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
