When she was 17, Courtney Love moved to Tokyo to start stripping
Do you know how good it feels to stand on the edge?
To feel the wind at your back pushing you to the edge?
Instead of some screaming no, don’t!
It’s like finger tips on your shoulders poking you just enough to make you stumble,
Pittsburgh has so many of these places.
The high buildings.
The fire escapes.
The lookout points.
It’s mesmerizing, looking out at all of those lights and feeling this high that goes with it.
It’s like doing things you know will hurt you,
Pittsburgh has a lot of that too
Drinking that last cup full of booze when you already feel hazey
Smoking that last blunt dipped in codeine when you already can’t hold your own head up
Breaking up that last line when your nose is already burning and your heart is racing
Pushing the gas pedal down that much further because the speed wants to match your heart beat even though everything is already blending together
It’s a feeling like no other
Not too many can handle it
What they did not want you to ever find out is that your generation, the generation born between 1980-1995, actually outnumbers the Baby Boomers. They knew that if you ever turned your eye towards political reform, you could change the world. They tried to keep you sated on vapid television shows and vapid music. They cut off your education and fed you brain candy. They took away your music and gave you Top Ten pop stations. They cut off your art and replaced it with endless reality shows for you to plug into, hoping you would sit quietly by as they ran the world. We as a society are only as strong as our weakest link. Give ‘em hell, kids.
