After the fight I walked calmly down the stairs towards the front door with table legs breaking on my back. My brother was in the kitchen making coffee “Good morning!” I said as I dodged a stool. “She’s real pissed. I’ll explain later. I’m off to work.” My brother lifted his cup shrugged and returned […]

I was in an apartment building I still have bad dreams about at the west end of Cambridge on the tail-end of being high for two days but I wasn’t even sure on what. People liked me so they always gave me things and when I’m drunk I’ll drop whatever like a champ because I’m […]
We went to an outdoor concert. Big venue. It was me, my buddy, our girlfriends years into relationships that were turning bitter.
