See a Problem?

❶Radar threw his books into his locker and shit it. But there is still too much to be ruined.

She leaned her body into mine a little and I could feel her upper arm against my ribs. When a guy like that gets promoted to Executive Vice President of Urine Gunning, immediate action must be taken. I understand that you do not control Chuck and Jasper. But you see, I am in a similar situation.

I do not control the little devil sitting on my left shoulder. So do I little angel. They strain against the string and strain against it, and then something happens, and that string gets cut, and they just float away. It was a place you go to die. I learn that it is not the idle fantasies of someone who maybe wants something important to happen to him, even if the important thing is horrible.

This cannot be addressed by breathing exercises. This fear bears no analogy to any fear I knew before. This is the basest of all possible emotions, the feeling that was with us before we existed, before this building existed, before the earth existed. This is the fear that made fish crawl out onto dry land and evolve lungs, the fear that teaches us to run, the fear that makes us bury our dead.

But I am not prepared. I made a feeble attempt. So grass is a metaphor for life, and for death, and for equality, and for connectedness, and for children, and for God, and for hope. There was no shortage of ways to see her. Not like a sister loves a brother or like a friend loves a friend. I love you like a really drunk guy loves the best girl ever.

Even though you suck so much! But thanks for the beer! That way no one can steal it from me! You like me anyway. And I like you. To try, even at this great remove, to hear the opera of her. I liked that they liked each other. We idealize them as gods or dismiss them as animals. And I had never quite thought of her that way, not really; it was a failure of all my previous imaginings.

All along—not only since she left, but for a decade before—I had been imagining her without listening, without knowing that she made as poor a window as I did. Margo was not a miracle. She was not an adventure. She was not a fine and precious thing. She was a girl. Radar rolled his eyes. The human tongue is like wasabi: For the longest time, it felt kind of like my chest was cracking open, but not precisely in an unpleasant way. I had engineered a most unlikely prom coupling.

I had quieted the hounds of caste warfare. I had come to feel comfortable inside the rat-infested haunted house where she did her best thinking. But I could not yet become the wounded person. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world. Do I just keep leaving places, and leaving them, and leaving them, tramping a perpetual journey? Pulling life out by the roots. All the paper kids drinking beer some bum bought for them at the paper convenience store.

Everyone demented with the mania of owning things. All the things paper-thin and paper-frail. And all the people, too. I've lived here for eighteen years and I have never once in my life come across anyone who cares about anything that matters.

And we are going to wrong some rights. The first shall be last; the last shall be first; the meek shall do some earth-inheriting. But before we can radically reshape the world, we need to shop. Do I just keep leaving places, and leaving them, and leaving them, tramping a perpetual journey? Margo was not a miracle. She was not an adventure. She was not a fine and precious thing. She was a girl. You can't see the wear on things, you know?

You can't see the rust or the weeds or the paint cracking. People never notice anything. It is so hard to leave — until you leave.

And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world. We just stay there, looking at each other, forever.
