My friend Jessica Chrastil and I want to make a Summer Book. Here is my first day of summer.
Last night a friend told me I needed to jump in in the ocean.
You need to jump in the fucking ocean, my friend said, the beer rising up into her face.
I need to jump in the fucking ocean, it’s true, but how could she tell?
It’s about to be summer and we’re about to go bananas.
I love the phrase go bananas almost as much as I love to go bananas.
I love to go yellow, curved, sliding, sticking, peeling, bruised, bitten, soft, some green...
Which is to say I love to go summer.
Summer is my best quality.
Before I go I need to say that I’m getting prepared.
I am trying to love things a little bit less, in preparation for summer.
I am trying to look up at the sky more.
I am trying to sweat as much as possible, so that when it gets really hot,
so hot that we can’t wear any clothes, I will be prepared,
for all the nakedness, all the empty glasses, and all the smells.
