Dear Diary,

I'm starting to hate you. I can't understand why you do the things you do. You hide a lot. You take a lot. You don't give; you only offer musty dreams, the useless desires of a moldering past. You have nothing to offer me right now in this exploding ever-present.

Why must you remind me of everything that leaves? Everything that I will lose? Why must I persistently remember the way steam curls away from the factory next door, the sensation of Jimmy's arms wrapped tight around me in the morning, the particularity of a birdcall? After much repetition without echo, all becomes meaningless: lost, buried, decomposed, and finally nothing.

You are almost five years old. And although we have spent a lot of time together, I think we are now at the age where I must leave you alone for awhile, to make something that I can hold in my hands. Something I can smell, open, give.

No hard feelings, okay? Goodbye for now.

--Phil
