I turned the llight on, now he don’t come around no more.
so this feels like an 80ies summer again, and
I’m riding my Apache-bike and wearing aviators and a Chevrolet-cap, and J’s dad makes moonshine whiskey down below. he plays the guitar, Creedence, obviously, Who’ll Stop The Rain, and he’s drunk and says he hates Johnny Cash and J and me have played Highwayman over and over and cannot understand why, but J’s dad says no, Johnny Cash just stands there and sings about people in prison and there’s no energy and he’s drunk on moonshine and picks up his guitar and starts singing an old Creedence song again, and there’s no way his wife cannot tell, even if she came from some hillbilly town in Eastern Norway and married a truck driver from Stavanger, a skeet shooter and duck hunter, and she has great tits like all moms back then and works as a cleaning lady at our school and doesn’t mind that her husband pours me moonshine as long as J doesn’t get any
and one day she opens the door topless, she was younger then than I am now
and this feels like an 80ies summer again
like moonshine whiskey and a hillbilly wife with great tits
and Steve Earle and Creedence Clearwater Revival
and a bike and a Chevrolet-cap and a great pair of tits

for a while I’ve tagged all my posts with “Free Liu Xia” and “Free Pussy Riot”. Pussy Riot doesn’t need any introduction. they’ve been jailed by the Putin-regime for insulting the Russian state and the Orthodox church. the real insult is that this could happen in Europe in the 21st century.
Liu Xia is the wife of Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiabo. Xia is a Chinese poet, painter and photographer whose only crime is being married to Liu Xiabo. Xiabo is currently serving an 11 year prison sentence for calling for multiparty elections in China. this is his fourth imprisonment. his wife, Liu Xia, is being held under house arrest and has no means of communicating with the outside world. she has, as far as I know, never seen a judge or been convicted of anything. her only crime is being married to Liu Xiabo.
her work “The Silent Strength of Liu Xia” is a collection of 25 black and white photographs she produced between 1996 and 1999 while her husband served his second labor camp sentence. the collection has been shown once at Columbia University.
