The Trickster Diaries/Chapter 89
Look, I know. I know I know I know. Most people just bounce this satori shit around in their heads and maybe, just maybe, some of it gets absorbed. Maybe it offers comfort, or hope, or inspiration, but it’s a thinking game, for most, as distant and distinct from actual experience as Sun from Pluto. Nice they half way try but it’s the same lame bullshit as a synthetic yak fur 3k sleeping bag inside a 6k 70D Nylon Taffeta 1500mm PU/SIL six person tent at an Occupy encampment in Los fucking Angeles in late June.
Just ask Mike. Remember him? The guy who half way produced my movie? During the Occupy thing he’d shop at notoriously homophobe-owned Whole Foods—he’s a stockholder, of course—then drive his 80k Lexus downtown, hand the food over to the demonstration organizers, con his ass into a video interview, rush back to his home in Hancock Park, check himself out on YouTube, kick the link to his Facebook account, then oh-so-humbly accept the comments, likes, and friend requests that rolled in drenched in hero worship.
And you remember me, too, I presume. The guy who spent months—maybe years if you’re good at math—alone in desert wilderness, running, practicing all seven forms of Tibetan yoga, eating nuts and dried fruit, watching wildflowers blossom.
So you’ll know, I hope, I’m not like most.
Most importantly you’ll understand and accept that Juliette, should you meet her on the street, is a lovely and alluring woman who, under her NYC fashion designer cunt facade, is uniquely shy. So, as she dismisses you, (rudely, in your eyes), please remember that maybe, just maybe, she is not of this earth.
Doll: (A sudden, frightened expression as she backs off from their embrace) Jesus, Rico. Don’t tell me you’re carrying…
Rico: Don’t worry, kid. It’s not for you. It’s for that thing up there. See?
