i just saw this thing on discovery channel, probably a rerun i
bet you can catch it sometime. all about natural predators and stuff.
wild things. yeah i’m up watching tv since i can’t sleep.
anyway they had this thing on the venus fly trap talking about how
it lures the curious insect to its lip and then these invisible
hairs or something sense when one of the suckers lands on it and
wham! it swallows the bug. just like that. later on it spits out
the skeleton of the fly and waits for the next victim. some types
of fly trap plants emit this odor to entice more food, says the
voice on the tv. the fancy name for them is dionaea
so i wonder if that’s all this is, this whole thing with
the shooting and the anonymous article and houston and the footprints
on the carpet, it’s all to get me into the venus fly trap,
only the scent isn’t sweet sap, it’s guilt. guilt over
all those times i was around drew and didn’t do anything you
know what i mean? and i’m flying all over the fucking country
and my head is buzzing and i think i’m getting close to the
truth but really i’m tickling some invisible hair and the
ground is about to fold up on me and swallow me down into that place
where nancy hughes and ken malone went.
i’m gonna go take some sleeping pills. ihope connie is going
better, man. i miss jen. she has a way of making me feel like i’m
home just by being around her. i’m tired of motels. i’m
sorry, eric i’m so sorry.
