You see things. You keep quiet about them and You understand. You’re a wallflower.
Look, my name is Patrick. Either you call me Patrick or you call me Nothing.
“Mary Elizabeth is a nice person underneath the parts of her that hate everybody.”
My favourite time, though, is lunch because I get to see Sam and Patrick. We spend the time working on Mary Elizabeth’s fanzine about music and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It’s called Punk Rocky. Mary Elizabeth is really interesting because she is a Buddhist and a punk, but somehow she always acts like my father at the end of a “long day.” Her best friend Alice loves vampires and wants to go to film school. She also steals jeans from the mall. I don’t know why because her family is rich, but I’m trying not to be judgemental.
I can see it. This one moment when you know you're not a sad story. You are alive.
