Heat rising. I move backwards. Into the shadow, reversing the parade. Stitch by stitch fusing the days together. The thievery of the moment. no boredom, zero contempt, ten to one inflation deflated, a caffeinated sleep for the real.  I'm spending my days at home in New Orleans like this: Sundays with
