This is Really My Life
On the day someone takes my truck off my hands…
…some Pablo Neruda.
“That’s how I am,” I’ll say, leaving this pretext in writing: “This is really my life.”
-From “Those Lives”
(Five Decades. P. 287)
Let’s get the best offer, by day’s end, and take it. In trucks for sale, as in everything else, this is existence. Choices and choosing. “Make me an offer, already! I got shit to do, what with the living and the dying and all that.”
What with the living and the dying.
This is really my life.
