The Urinal And The ATM (Letterman, 1994)

Crawl across toward your window
I’m calling softly from the street
Always a lonely widow
Half awake and sleeping on my feet

I’m of age but have no children 
No quarter phone booth calls to home 
Just late television
Inside my bedroom all alone

There is no use in waiting 
Offer up your steps so I can climb
Show me all your figure paintings 
Etched in the middle of the night

Let me stretch upon your carpet 
Let me hear the rain tap on your street
Knowing I am safe on the inside
Blankets wrapped and drifting off to sleep

"The only obsession everyone wants: ‘love.’ People think that in falling in love they make themselves whole? The Platonic union of souls? I think otherwise. I think you’re whole before you begin. And the love fractures you. You’re whole, and then you’re cracked open."
- Philip Roth (via philo-sofia)

In “This Is Water,” David Foster Wallace offers thoughts on living a compassionate life. Jessica Hagy beautifully illustrates them here.

If you’re automatically sure that you know what reality is, and you are operating on your default setting, then you, like me, probably won’t consider possibilities that aren’t annoying and miserable … But if you really learn how to pay attention, then you will know there are other options. It will actually be within your power to experience a crowded, hot, slow, consumer-hell type situation as not only meaningful, but sacred, on fire with the same force that made the stars: love, fellowship, the mystical oneness of all things deep down.
