Forget This

"It is very important, we are told, to get out of the house. You can't lie in bed all day. Go out in the world. Our town is six miles from the ocean. There is a lighthouse. The lighthouse does not light-up. Also, the lighthouse is not as tall as the funeral home, which is next door. Down the road from here, about a hundred and fifty years ago Walt Whitman walked naked and bearded on the beach and threw up his arms to the stars. A little closer in time, Lou Reed's parents tried to have the gay shocked out of him with electrodes. In Lou's hometown maybe about twenty years before he was born, the Ku Klux Klan marched down the street all with pointy hoods on their heads. Still, there are many parking lots where you can park your car to do drug and sex things, but there is no place for rock 'n' roll, except the house, but, the important thing, we are told, is to get out of our house. To go see the ocean. The ocean is beautiful, it is bigger than the bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen, the whole house, when the ocean rises up and swallows us all it won't matter that I was sleeping on the couch.
