One day I'll write non-angst. Of course, the world may also tilt on its axis...
I wonder how people expressed some things before the concept of literacy. 'It's written all over his face'. 'I can read him like a book'. 'It's all Greek to me', (and there's a tangent there that I wish I had half a chance of exploring). He's leaning over me now, showing off the book of traditional Pacific tattoos ("so unutterably cool, pity that people exploit these things without understanding them"). I'm tattooed all over with his warmth, his scent, his breath and he hasn't got a clue. Hey, Chief, want a new footnote for the diss?
