The writer is ambivalent by nature. That’s who we are… We’re ambivalent about everything… Our interest in things was never real. It wasn’t genuine, or wholehearted. We were mostly interested in life as material for the line, the verse, the story. Unfortunately, that didn’t keep us from running around like chickens with our heads cut off trying to feel a little better, looking for a buzz. Anything to escape the anguish.
