sounds of my life

the day after i told my ex husband i was
leaving him i found a postcard from a stranger
in my mailbox that read:

It's so nice
to wake up in the morning
all alone
and not have to tell somebody
you love them
when you don't love them
any more.

and such was my mystical introduction to brautigan.

i've been wanting this on vinyl for quite a bit, but
either never finding it or being outrageously outbid on
ebay. this time i made my own outrageous bid.
