  • I had you come west.

    I took you to the trees.

    I showed you how to sit.

    I showed you how to listen.

    I showed you how to pause.

    And feel the bark and taste the air and the smell the ground and hear the groaning trunk.

    And you showed me how to jam a BlackBerry into that trunk and record the shit out of it. Silly groaning trunk. No escaping you and your BlackBerry. Voice memo that shit. Technology rules! Yeah!
