Sample text

It was a beautiful old restored classic from 1969, when he was just thirteen: a thirteen-year-old’s dream, and I gave it the license plate DART. ) I used to love to buy him things: a white suede cowboy suit with long fringes, and white-and-cream lizard-skin boots, with a ten-gallon white Stetson to crown the costume; monogrammed towels that said “DVD”; jewelry (which he usually lost); electronic equipment (which he usually broke); cashmere sweaters, crocodile loafers, costly artbooks, engraved stationery, silk pajamas, silk underwear, the lot.

It was just his nature—like that of the scorpion who stings the horse who carries him across the stream (as in that ancient Aesopian joke about the nature of scorpions). Somehow, when we were together, things had a tendency to get lost: wallets, credit cards, jewelry. Perhaps this was because we were often stoned or perhaps this was because together we entered a gyre in which whirl was king and all order and structure went out of our lives. I took this as a proof of love, for is not love, after all, self-forgetfulness?

Tennis. Outer space. Deep-sea diving. Basketball. Las Vegas. Another woman. It’s all the same flight. The man I love has constructed a museum to macho in my garage. Power saw. Punching bag. Motorcycle. Barbells. I love him in part because I cannot tame the wild creature that dwells inside him. For this is another paradox of the sexes: whatever we love in the other we seek to kill. My love is a con man, a hustler, a cowboy, a cocksman, an addict, an artist, a fancy dancer, a dandy. He has no fixed address.
