Cavalier Loitering (May 19 2014)[i]

Waking up at 1 p.m.

Wheat Flakes and Berry Cobbler Granola with Almond Milk.

Communications and organization.

Scrambled Egg. Mixed Vegetables. Cinnamon Raisin English Muffin with Vegan Cream Cheese. Honey Green Tea.

At The Escape lifting weights and doing core exercises.

Grapefruit. Homemade Granola Bar.

At the street basketball courts shooting around solo.

Back home.

Northern Beans with Tikki Paste, Garlic Sautéed Spinach, and Fried Rice. Icelandic Milk Chocolate.

Darren and Anthony convince me to join them on a bike ride. We ride up Laskin, up 24th, and north on the boardwalk—hollering at any passersby as they reciprocate the energy. We pass one of the colossal newer hotels near 30th where developers have taken control of the city's image. Darren yells at the room patios, his voice echoing, "You're part of the problem!"

Pit stop at the grand entrance of the old Cavalier hotel. Darren stands on the ledge and unloads a big piss on the alley below. Across the street we are confronted by the big money homes.

Darren: "We're the proletariat! We can't afford your homes!"

Back at the house. Darren and Anthony continue gulping down their cans of Rolling Rock and breaking down the world with critical minds. Later on, Josh, Will, and Taylor Surratt come home from Norfolk. Josh is inebriated and at some point throws a chair at my window from out back.

Reed's Ginger Ale.

Watching Magic Magic (2013).

Sleep at 4 a.m.
