When driving through America, I like to look at the houses next to the highway. Some are pre-fab, most have chain-link fences or no fences. There are usually a lot of cars out front, which makes me think people are home. Why are they out here so far? I think of a handle of vodka or rum. Do they get the Internet? Oh. That house has a black lab sitting on the porch. I kinda envy their view of the mountains. How much are they are paying to live there: $100/month? $250? Do they own the land? There's so, so, so, so, so, so much land. It's covered in blonde grass. There are deer with little white butts and tails. Beautiful little deer. "Hey, did you see the deer?" I ask.


Because of puddles after hail, our car fishtailed and turned a 360 going diagonally across the freeway. We were going 75. There were no cars around. We did not flip. The cops were pretty nice. We fucked up our bumper, but drove away. My back hurts a little. But, it always hurts a little.








taylor and selena get in a fight

Taylor (sits on park bench next to Selena): I'm so glad you made time to see me. How's life? Tell me how's your family?

Selena: Now that I have captured your attention/I wanna steal you for a rhythm intervention

Taylor: You look like bad news

Selena: [Um.]

Taylor: Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me [?]

Selena: [Um.]

Taylor: Your guard is up and I know why.

Selena: [He said] You know you love me, I know you care/Just shout whenever, and I'll be there.

Taylor: I knew you were [in] trouble when you walked in

Selena: I'm addicted, no lie.

Taylor: I remember when [you] broke up the first time saying, This is it, I've had enough.

Selena: [He said] My breath is your breath/When you're hurt, I'm not right.

Taylor: [You’re] confused, and lonely at the same time.

Selena: I got no regrets.

Taylor: I heard you moved on from whispers on the street.

Selena: I love [him] much, too much to hide [him], this love ain't finished yet.

Taylor: Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble.

Selena: [you say] seems like there's always someone who disapproves/they'll judge.

Taylor: No apologies … You're drowning, you're drowning, you're drowning.

Selena: [But he said] your my one love, my one heart, my one life for sure

Taylor: I think part of me knew the second I saw him that this would happen.

Selena: Can't stop because I love it.

Taylor: Shame on [you] now.

Selena: Who's Taylor Swift anyway? Ew.

Taylor: No apologies.

Selena: Even if you knock it, ain't no way to stop it.

Taylor: [You] are never ever ever getting back together.

Selena: This love will be the death of me/But I know I'll die happily.

Taylor (smacks fist in palm): Like, ever...

Selena (lifts dukes): When you're ready come and get it/Na na na na [3x]

Taylor: No!

Taylor: Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground.

Selena: I'm good with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Taylor: I love the gap between your teeth.

Selena: I ain't leaving your side.

Taylor: It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters.

Selena: I'll be sittin' right here, real patient/All day,all night, I'll be waitin' standby.

Taylor: Tonight's the night when we forget about the heartbreaks/It's time.

Selena: Sh-sh-

Taylor: Ooh-ooh, ye-e-e-e-eah, hey.

Selena: Oh, oh/Can we take it nice and slow, slow.

Taylor: I just... I mean this is exhausting, you know.

Selena: Ha ha ha ha
