Hey Paul, Why are you single?
I loathed you, Spoon River. I tried to rise above you, I was ashamed of you. I despised you As the place of my nativity. And there in Rome, among the artists, Speaking Italian, speaking French, I seemed to myself at times to be free Of every trace of my origin.

I would ask, “Who am I?” But that would be really cliche and I would look back on this post months from now and run to my bathroom to vomit. Sometimes I feel really alone here, though I know I don’t have to be. But, technically, it is my fault. I don’t talk about anything now, and when I do it’s normally in a lighthearted joking sort of way. Except I’m serious. ...
