Jay McInerney, “Invisible Fences”
48 hours until Will finishes his degree and we can hang out all the time again and I can look after him until he gets better.
A woman pours so much hand sanitizer on her hands that it runs off and spills all over the floor. It is pooling at her feet. She continues pouring it. A security guard comes over. Ma’am, you’re causing a disturbance. I’m going to have to ask you to leave. The security guard slips, falls. The security guard is covered in hand sanitizer. The security guard is so clean. The woman is so clean. The woman’s hands are so clean.
What a pair of losers.I don’t get how I’m allowed to be this happy.
Even writing horrible essays about the Wolfman and trauma are improved by the simple fact of being in love with him, and knowing he’s in love with me.
