Loose Rock Roofs.

We never know where obsession comes from.

Shoveling and Raking and Hosing down one’s roof. Often. In all seasons, all weather.

Certain obsessions can bring you closer to your community. Others drive you away.

You can sit in a lawn chair on the roof and always have something to throw at enemies.

You’ll be throwing your roof. Which is composed of thousands of small, fill rocks. These are what you will throw at people. And, if you hold a pile of them in both hands in front of your face, what you will hide behind when they come after you.

Obsessions like photography will likely get you blinded by god. Obsessions with inappropriate roofing material will lower your property value.

On breezy summer nights, you can close your eyes and pretend you’re living under a river bed instead of one of 20th century industrial America’s great residential humiliations.

SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP!
