Arsenic Pills: Titration, the free follow-up addendum to Arsenic Pills -…
I haven't written a physical letter in fourteen years. That sounds both improbable and perfectly illustrative of the many aspects of emotional personalization that we've readily sacrificed in the name of expediency. (This coming from a man who selects coffee shops based on the presence of a drive-thru.) Of course, when I say 'letter', I reference the pen-pal kind, not the stilted 'here's why you should hire me'/bragging robot resume cover letter kind.

I want to write a letter. I don't even have the slightest idea what I'd say, though. Perhaps I'd muse over something my son said or did. Maybe it would be rampant with politics, with big, bold letters and underlines and scraggy, angrily-scrawled words aplenty. I could etch a tiny picture of a cat in the corner. Would you like that? A cat? Who the fuck wouldn't?

We're not real anymore, I suppose is the actual cultural development I find troublesome. Smoke and mirrors and handkerchiefs, as I've mentioned to someone else appreciative of the sentiment in conversation. We were always moving towards this, but in the days of putting pen to paper, the magic tricks were at least more impressive. They required more effort. More time. Something less sterile, something messy and wily like a piece of soul. Imperfection in the raw.

But even I am starting to succumb to autocorrect.
