    Dear TwitLonger -- When you talk too much for Twitter.

Speak your mind. Embrace the "huh? what?". Become a repeat offender. Become a repeat offender. Get sad. Fall to the ground and cry like a burning embassy. Inconsulate. Don't just check out, checkerboard your vision until you're transported to a mystical world well outside the norm and beyond the edge of your known reality. Maybe wonder if you can still catch the bus. Maybe just wander through the maniac spillings of a ruptured ego, and claim your victim. Weigh it, sell it, maybe cut it first. Burning in hell for eternity is no reason to get a raw deal.

Get happy. Rob your piggy. Cut paper figures, hang streamers. Bury your birthday cake and fall into an intense belief in the magical. Shoot some so-and-so millimeter photos of yourself, like seeing something is enough to save it. Save it.

Make a friend, light a tar stick with a flick of the wrist, and let the electronic coils drench your list in pain as you blister another to life. Forget every moment and invest some belief in perfection. Then forget that too. Count your rancid blessings. Act like your soul persists as sixty ghosts tumbling around in a dying body, all dissimilar and estranged. Turn into a spectral slum lord. A ghost's ghost-town. Assert yourself, all thumbless and bleeding, total coolness with no glimmer. Slide back into the ocean, from sapien to ape to rat-mammal to fish to protoplasmic slime. Stay on the ground. Dream poems once and then write them. Find your truth in leaves, and put them in your diary. Verse yourself in the imperative second-person, because your convictions will sound pathetic in the earnestly first. And here's a lead pipe for you to keep in your purse.

Yours truly,
