the future scared the shit out of me
December 10, 2012
I hate nostalgia. Laying in that ditch, I didn’t think about the past. The old days when I was eleven. What was the point. I thought about the now. The truth is that the future scared the shit out of me. I just liked to stay in the moment.
My mother said I was lazy. Like my uncle Tom. I never thought he was lazy. He just liked to have fun and I couldn’t see that there was much wrong with that.
Kuris hung over the ditch staring down at me.
“I’d like to learn to smoke,” he said.
