Joyland published the first to exist excerpt from Ricky's Anus. It's from somewhere near the end of the first third of the book. Don't know what else to say.


Yesterday was probably a benchmark in my life and i barely went outside

I got some new popsicles tho

what flavors?

when i am feeling nostalgic and decadent, i buy otter pops.

my buddies dad used to bang his mom with otter pops and then eat them.

he would emerge from the bedroom and eat them in front of us.

he would tell us what he did with a red face.

fun times.

they are some sugar free kroger brand bullshit. not very good, but i can eat them late in great number and not get sugared. they keep breaking off at the top and then you get the mouthful, which is the worst.

pussypops?

Good stuff man. I was listening to "Strange Overtones," by David Byrne and Brian Eno while reading. They worked together.
