Fleeting-Improvised Man

For the first time in what feels like a Danteanly bleak eternity, I’ve been having a productive couple of days. Pulled the whole frontend down and started from scratch. My CSS has grown rusty from underuse and I’m having to learn AngularJS all over again and parts of the look are just straight-up finked from better women than I, but you know what? I don’t totally hate where this is going.

Gay men are guardians of the masculine impulse. To have anonymous sex in a dark alleyway is to pay homage to the dream of male freedom. The unknown stranger is a wandering pagan god. The altar, as in pre-history, is anywhere you kneel.
Camille Paglia
I picked up a leaf
today from the sidewalk.
This seems childish.

Leaf! you are so big!
How can you change your
color, then just fall!

As if there were no
such thing as integrity!

You are too relaxed
to answer me. I am too
frightened to insist.

Leaf! don’t be neurotic
like the small chameleon.
Frank O’Hara, “Les Étiquettes Jaunes”

Pain, it appears, is distributed with a kind of inequality distinct from the other inequalities in American health care—one with its own contours, its own logic, and its own disturbing history. And because chronic pain, in particular, often lacks a discrete location in the body, it leaves both diagnosis and treatment almost completely up to a doctor’s own judgment, which brings in a range of subtle prejudices that psychologists and other scholars are only beginning to understand.
I wouldn’t necessarily mind people not knowing I’m gay, but I don’t like being thought of as straight — in the same way that I don’t mind people not knowing I’m a writer, but it would be awkward if they assumed I was an extreme skateboarder, because that’s so far removed from the reality of my life. But there is no blank slate where orientation is concerned; we are straight until proven otherwise. And if you’ve never seen how dramatically a conversation can be derailed by a casual admission of homosexuality, let me tell you, it gets awkward.

Is there a term for Presidential compressed speech thumb? I feel like there should be. It’s awkward and I’ve never seen it used in the wild, less the occasional CEO or American Wealth Network travel show host.

It’s meant to summon the image of the man having his proverbial finger on the button, as if to remind foreign dignitaries, “All I have to do is squeeze.”
