I thought I'd get back on a lucky run. [Feb. 22nd, 2010|10:10 pm]
Uneasy Quiet

I want to be the girl in the car. I want to be the girl in the cheap motel room in the Cohen Brothers' southwest.

Instead I am the girl with the government job and the mortgage that is enraptured by Joni Mitchell's Hejira and Mark Lanegan's Bubblegum.

I want to be the willowy blonde in her boyfriend's jeans, along for the ride with her ramblin' man.

Instead I am the stocky, gawky, sometimes-redhead that tries to make students, lawyers and others understand. They lie in my bed and listen patiently as I paint the fantasy that makes me so very, very sore.

I want to be crystalline in the mind of a tortured artist, angelic in my ability to induce tsunamis of regret.

Instead I am what I am. There's nothin' I can do.
