B. 11.8.1838 Saint-Jean-d’Angely, France / D. 2.1868 Paris
Suicide / Oil Stove

Ever since I got into bed last night I’ve been meaning to cut an inch off the clitoris in the Christine Jorgenson obituary. What now?—I wonder through a flat day leavened only by wishes that a particular female-to-male transsexual future lover whom I could make my fiancé(e) would appear, as if through supernatural means.

Which makes of Tony Blair— a sequin.
