“The loudspeaker mounted on the roof of the porch announces
for breakfast today we are having everything and we are having it
on tables like the civilized people I yearn for you to be. Without dreams
we are little more than figments of someone else’s imagination
and I don’t know about you but I did not spend my life
waiting to be someone else’s light bulb. Today’s activity
is building a dreamboat. We are building our dreamboats
to better get to our dreams. I am not asking you to play nice
so much as I am saying that a dreamboat is not a dining hall.
There will be a cool breeze off the lake at lunch time.
Lord knows who invented the Public Address system
but we are the ones who will live with it.”Holy shit, that’s an except from Sasha’s Fletcher’s DEAR GLORIA, DEAR MADELINE, DEAR SIOBHAN, DEAR ETHEL, DEAR ELOISE, DEAR WENDY, DEAR BECKY, DEAR LISA, DEAR LIZA, DEAR MICHELLE, DEAR TAMIKA, DEAR TANYA, TONIGHT, which is forthcoming from Big Lucks Books in March 2014.
