Time to go. Moved to city. Left Kentucky fast. No looking back. New York City. 6th floor walkup. No air con. New sales job. Never used Outlook. No tech knowledge. Excited, anxious, lonely. Walked fucking everywhere. Made new friends. Joined new gym. Aussie from Coogee. Traveled from Sydney. Week per month. Ferocious in sack. Traveled for work. Boozed too much. No driving needs. Hated new boss. Slacked off frequently. Men’s club Fridays. Once got manicure. No clear polish. Made little money. Strokes were playing. Went to Hamptons. Heavy fucking Hamptons. Stayed in Montauk. Long train rides. First Rangers game. Went to Sydney. Met Aussie’s family. Was not moving. No more Aussie. Traveled for fun. Slightly more income. Freckles from Lexington. Naked kitchen cigarettes. Solid damn whoaman. Was pretty fit. Into coke slightly. Labor Day weekend. Kitchen freckled beatdown. Went through phone. Misinterpreted my texts. Mate’s girlfriend’s texts. Apology flower delivery.

Took some convincing. Moved to village. Roommate never there. Hamptons share house. Sundays with dimples. Too much money. Stupid day jobs. Living the ‘life’. Got a chance.
Time to go. Moved to London. Stayed with dimples. No good distance. Too much distance. Mexico for work. Snuck pills out. LOTS of pills. Lost those dimples. Was not working. Another stupid mistake. Sat in Houston. Dozing in airport. Xanys, cyclones, percocets. Pharma fucking cocktails. Life is numb. Not sure why. Back to Smoke. The Big Smoke. All pills delivered. More new friends. Booze culture flourishing. On the piss. Take the piss. Beer league hockey. Traveled a bit. Apples and pears. Fight six bouncers. Scousers in tow. Got away clean. Shiners on us. No jail time. Amazing that is. Ascot next weekend. Kentucky in tow. NO FUCKING SEERSUCKER. Seersucker and madras. Only that dick. Meet fellow Kentuckian. Stripper and hot. Together we rolled. Taste of home.
