Jack's Twisted Kingdom
Nothing is as obnoxious as other people's luck.
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
there's that turbulence of mesmerism wafting about the sunny
afternoon, wantonly flinging compliments about with the
graciousness of a baby bird struggling to free itself from
the egg. personally, I have no doubt to the veracity of the
phrase, "i think I can, I think can", but it's so appalling
to me that I seem so deliciously unaware of my surroundings,
that I should be jealous of other peoples success.
there's a lesson to be learned in there somewhere.
