Underthecurrent


I was in love with a place in my mind

B and I sit in a restaurant booth eating fish dumplings and drumsticks and arty looking slaw, talking about the time since we met almost exactly six years ago. Eventually we’ll end up at a KISS tribute band drinking pil in the back, half cut since 4:30 pm.

We talk about how his shakes are doing and a family history of early onset Parkinsons.

He stiffens just slightly at mention of L.G. visiting but something considered a lot this year is how to manage the transition to being in a stable relationship without losing everyone else along the way. Even if this isn’t it, eventually it seems there will be one.

Romantic stability, not so much a forte.

But world, get ready, because this is a changing moment.

Friday drinks was three hours of laughter. I like these people. I like the way people are in this part of the world. Don’t lose that. I keep telling myself not to wish life away and confuse propulsion with something else; not an easy mantra when life revolves around working in professional contingency, always thinking in advance for everyone else.
