Doctrine of Nocturne

Do you have a girlfriend? from Anonymous

I do now. Also, you are my first anon (I believe that’s what they call them but correct me if I’m wrong) and I thank you for reminding me what a resplendent belle I have to call my own.

There comes a point in life where, without realizing it, we go from saying, “That’s what my life will be” to “That’s life.”


Give me a ratty mattress on the floor, a mistress who comes and goes in furious fits, a liquor store in stumbling distance, and demons with enough respect to stay the fuck away until there’s a pen in my hand.
