"The problem with New York is people that think that transcendent genius is caged in their mind, a few sentences away from lucratively leaping to the public sphere. It’s a generation of people who truly believe that they have something world-altering to say, when really it’s just the same 70’s bong-water bullshit soaking our collective socks. Work hard or leave, and no, buying a MacBook and launching a blog doesn’t count as working. Get a job, shut up, and be someone’s bitch for 30 years like our parents had to. Or don’t, and try not to act so surprised when you aren’t one of the lucky 3 or 4 who actually pull that whole wealthy fameball savant thing off."

TitleCities in Dust

And you, fickle New York, where did you go after our  nights lying awake together? Oh, I pursued you. We went to the opera, to  plays, to gritty little restaurants in Queens. You — the city — were  always my date. But you never belonged to me. Eventually you, too, moved  on, taking your buzzing neon promise of fame to the next newcomer.
…
New York, I’ll never forget how dating you made me so poor that when I  wanted to read I had to unscrew a bulb from the bedroom and carry it to  the living room.
Most of all, I won’t miss how you daily reminded me of this: that  once a red-haired girl has said “I’m sorry” and left with another man,  there’s no more lonesome place on earth than your East Village on a warm  summer’s night when the girls and boys cling to each other as if to  keep the other from floating away.

Goodbye, New York. Thanks for Breaking My Heart. (city room)
