“When I was a little boy my mother defeated me. She would not let me play with my cock or suck on her soft titty. Defeated, defeated, I know I am defeated. Defeated, defeated, you are defeated, too.”

I gambled this week let’s start with my gambling. It isn’t a problem, a problem is something like my drinking or condoms, those shaft numbing toiletries, those are a problem. My gambling is only a problem in so far that I never gamble, I don’t take it, but hell I filled the sheet with all of its spreads and holes and over/under shit that I really don’t understand. Every time I’ve filled out one of these quaint little sheets I’ve immediately thought two things: hell my mom really gave me great penmanship and hell I could have just picked the exact opposite of what I actually thought and damned if I would ever know, it could all fall that way and I could still be a gaddam millionaire when this is all over. At first it was very exciting going up and down with the scores, something vested something new, faithful that the geyser of teams would do what I want when I need but then one or two things go wrong and bam here I am with my thumb in the dyke having to take a gaddam piss like I have a drinking problem (and the only problem with my drinking is ________). All in all I’d say I was good on 75% of my bets which might be a lot but I didn’t know how to fill out the gaddam thing and ended up being told by someone who I’d rather not be told anything by that I have to win all of them, not just some, there is no balance, there is no heaven or hell, there is no sublime, life as illusion, powerless structures, rooted anger, hereditary disorders, I have no power, I am nothing, life is nothing, I am ready to die. How was I to know? It was like I put up 13 points and then in one 15 minute session I gave up 31 unanswered and that, my friends, fucking smarts.
