letters (why do i do such things)

“I climb up on the cabin roof sometimes to let the stars into my eyes. But once I am up there they seem farther away than when I am on the ground. There is a constellation that reminds me of your hip bone. I think I’m trying to get closer to that bunch of light.”

“I didn’t want to admit I was aware of what she was doing. Which is alright. But you shouldn’t let someone seek refuge in you. With is alright.”

“I wanted to hold you until I heard one voice. I stood without intention of moving and realized we see every punch coming in a boxing movie but in real life we miss a lot of them.”

“Why do I do such things.
I hope the answer is that I embrace life with abandon. But I fear the truth is that I’m irresponsible.”

— Bill Callahan
