Curb on 83rd

SISTER: So what did you do yesterday?

ME: I was mostly wandering around, looking for objects to put into this curb thing I'm doing.

SISTER: Man, you are really lucky.

ME: Why do you say that?

SISTER: Well, you get to really explore your creative self. Do you know how many people would love to do that?

ME: I guess. But the thing is sort of getting out of hand. I had focus when I started and now it's sprawling out all of the place - it's like my own private version of SIM CITY. I'm starting to second guess myself. Even the
idea of posting it all on the web - which seemed like a good idea at first - now I think it wasn't so good. I should have just worked on it in private and then put it up - I mean - does the magician show how his tricks are done?

SISTER: Are you a magician?

ME: No. I wish I was. But no one really wants to see all this back and forth stuff you go through. A couple of people do, but mostly it's - I don't know - it shows how crazy the whole creative thing is. And it seems pretentious. On the other hand - right now I can't really stop myself. I'm starting to put pieces of people into the thing.


SISTER: I still say you're lucky.

ME: Maybe. I dunno.
