Guilt Trip

August 31st, 2007

road-trip-lhe-096I am the monument resting up the hill. You are the visitor, the pilgrim of history, snapping photos, using a limited language to explain the notion of my importance, happy to admire that which you hardly understand. I deserve every compliment you’ll awkwardly articulate while staring at me. I am the best and the most interesting thing you’ve seen in a while, I am a marvel of historic authenticity and you cannot compare me to anything else, that is how good I am. And over the years this has become something for me to know and for you to find out. And you try to find the words to express your admiration and concern, and I like that, how cute, the amateur anthropologist searching for the right words to express himself usually suggesting ways to help me survive the obvious neglect I endure from this and every other inapt government ministry that promises to preserve me forever. Fuck forever I need help now. But you can’t do anything for me. Nobody can. Good to see you though, and come back.
