a sailor, indeed

having been the third time getting to see morrissey perform and the first two, unable to get the opportunity to touch him, i was slightly pessimistic, though determined, to get a hold of his hand. i had written him a letter, as i always do to toss onstage. i was amazed that i made it to the front so soon in the show. countless times, i waved the envelope to morrissey, him teasing me - as if he were going to grab it - and walking away... eventually, he put his hand just far enough out for me to set it underneath his fingers. i closed them around the envelope and held on for a few seconds while he sand into my eyes. when he let go, i cried... i finally had touched morrissey. anyhow, he sang quite a few more songs and eventually left, returned for the encore in sailor garb. i nearly fell over (and might have, if there had been room) ...in my letter i wrote of how dreary my life had become since i moved from chicago to tempe two months ago... how i missed my only true friend back in illinois... how my 1999 had been completely terrorizing me ever since i was discharged from the navy
last december...
