phil collins is not a cannibal

introduction; ink on math paper, 9.5 x 6.5 inches.

In a store the other day and they were playing Phil Collins over and across the aisles, all I could think about was how he believes that he was at the Alamo in another life, and how lonely he is now, and how he's thought about killing himself, I can't even tell you what Phil Collins song it was, or maybe it was Genesis, all of it was so massively successful and now it means nothing to him, he almost wishes it never happened, except that it allows him to live in a posh house in Switzerland, and collect Alamo artifacts, and wander the halls and ponder weird energies, like a more resigned version of Billy Joel, and of course not drinking as much, having giving up on ever being taken seriously. You become consumed in a shorthand way. A friend of mine once admitted that she would resort to cannibalism if it would save her life, and was astonished when I absolutely refused the idea, saying that then it wouldn't matter if you were rescued or not, because you'd always be known as that person who ate people, especially to yourself.
