    I really like the contrast between the continuous motion of what’s happening and the stillness, the transient moment from which point of view this essay is written. Powerful!

    I really like the contrast between the continuous motion in the highlighted events and the stillness of the transient moment from which perspective the essay is written. Powerful!

    This has such a great cadence. With your words, your created a sense that we are being propelled forward, out of control. Impulsive. Intentional confusion. Really beautiful.

    “Those Carhartts, that beard.” What a powerful shorthand for the physical masculinity of the person. I can almost smell him, feel the magnetism.

    The two lanterns and the chaos of a life-path lit by two-buck beer and a pair of Carhartt’s—gorgeous writing.

    How intimate, honest and human, all so human. Makes me tingle; so painfully beautiful.
