Gay Boys and Thin Walls


AtomicArtist: I am thinking I should send a letter to the boy you know who moved in next door...

Dear Boy Next Door;
I know you have recently moved into the building and before you get settled into a routine I should inform you of some things. Next door there is someone you know, have known for a time. I would like to inform you that he is a dark creature, a dirty perv that keeps late hours and dark secrets. The noises you may hear in the night are of his doing...like a Tom Waitts song , "What's He Building" which he played for me one time as we were lying in bed.

Do you hear the music through the wall? Do you know of the concerts we have gone to? You may hear more Depeche Mode in the next few days as we are heading there soon. Often there are sounds from the shower, melodies sung by a clear high voice ringing out against the tile. You hear me sing RadioHead, Tori among others..I will apologize now if my vocals wake you at 3 a.m. If you think I am loud, you should hear the guy who lives above us. We at least don't have a creaky bed or a headboard that taps against the wall in a rhythmic taboo that mimics the beat of my heart as it pumps.

Should I apologize now for invading your privacy, my voice sifting through the walls and into your own room...should I apoligize that I won't be quiet, that when I want to scream I will and I don't care? Am I a bad person? I don't think so, I just won't lie to myself and contain what the vessel wishes to share. I won't apologize...I won't.

Welcome to the neighborhood...

wow! This is a very well though out letter. Thanks for writing it. Great Tom Waits analogy and I laughed about the late hours and dark secrets. This ought to make everything a whole lot better for him the next time you ride me like a rodeo bull through the living room. Bring a cowboy hat.

AA, I don't need a cowboy hat, just my whip and my little red cowboy boots. YeeeeeHaw!
