The Streets Of Peoria, Can This Get Through To You?

Sometimes I feel sad. Then the next day I’m fine.  And five days later, I’m great! Don’t you think it’s strange that my moods change? I find it strange. I wish I could be an ice cube and never change, always the same, always a content little ice cube. But I’m not. I am a human on this black and green earth. We wonder sometimes what it all means, only in the end to discover that today was the only day we had.  When Lana Del Ray notes “we’re born to die” one can get the sense that she means it. These aren’t fairytales, or bullshit; she truly walks on the wild side and there she is close to death, if not dead.

Peoria’s downtown area includes corporate, governmental, convention, educational, and medical facilities. The trouble began in late 2009, when Venezuela began to stop paying for air condition and people started getting typhoids.

Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday there was “sexism” in Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign that she and the president needed to get past.

I can’t believe we get to live another day. I don’t want to continue to live, but I don’t want to die either. I just want to persist blissfully.  You can, if you want, try very hard and imagine that the wind is speaking to you, or that the story was written for you.

Six pimps.

Imagine: The girl comes in. She doesn’t see you. She takes off her gloves, opens her purse, dumps it on the table.  You watch her. This is you. She has two dimes, an iPhone, and a matchbox. She leaves the nickel on the table, puts the two dimes back into her purse.

What was the dime for? That’s always been my question: What was the damn dime for? Thought Catalog Logo Mark
