On Blow-drying One's Genitals

28 Dec 2011

Ross Beeley, for McSweeney’s:

Does the courage to do this in public come with age? Perhaps it’s something a young man like me can’t understand. But you, you are on in years; gray and spotted like a ham in a paintball fight. Your scrotum reminds me of boardwalk taffy. Maybe you’ve been building up to this day your whole life and I’m witnessing the birth of a phoenix.

Madness and poetry. Beats the hell out of my attempt.
