right on time he gently places his martini on the piano and snapping his cuffs flashes his watch need and power are in inverse proportion, a gangster story “when in doubt go back to first principles” said (Tony businessman nuggety Irishman resterantuhr whose surname is the origin of the letter) F., (this is true before i even got the computer he was the one who used to say shut up squires get a computer and write it all down.) Here on the other side with me, ferrymanpaid, he says tapping the screen his cigarette immaculate into some imaginary ashtray, with whom and so forth been tied to many a mast said, that in the extreme unlikelyhood that you a drunken Irishman and 10 years older should outlive me, I hereby forthwith and suchlike appoint you the executor of my estate which consists of lots of well hidden debts and the contents of this here briefcaserecorder thingy he says jangling his chains, i never delete anything, have fun, do you remember the ending of that fillum starring Al Pacino, well take a real deep breath i tell you at the wake, you gotta love an irishman, he said, young Jimmy Joyce in Dubliners, heh!

  8. […] revolution not whispering in the halls of academia. Fuck’s sake, man, get a grip, haha, said F. placing his frothy glass immaculately on the centre of your belly where despite tide and storm […]
