Captured Audience

Jesús left his number on the restroom wall along with a drawing of a penis. It appears that Rob and Sue are back together. Sam wrote, “Mary does it,” but he didn’t mention what she does or how to reach her. There’s also a message from a guy explaining how to have sex with a taco, rhymed poetry on the meaning of life, hieroglyphic gang inscriptions, and clever drawings of body parts. There’s so much to read in magic markers. I’m beginning to understand what it’s like to be a dog sniffing trash cans and fireplugs. “Jesús Saves. Dial 1-800-P-E-N-I-S.”
