Bathroom Monologue: This Heavy World

“World isn’t full of heaviness. It isn’t full of death and despair and failure. If it was, those things wouldn’t hurt so much. If the world was full of heaviness, nothing could drag you down. You’d be heavy in the middle of other great weights, and stay right where you were. If we plummet, it is because there are lighter things in this world, often above us, but isn’t the sky nice? Laughs, sharks, flatulence, sunny days, cool water, beaches, orgasms and overwritten poems. It’s a big place, of many masses.”


  1. Absolutely beautiful, John. I'm going to print it out and hang it on the wall in my office. Right now.

    1. Not only did I print it out for myself, I printed out nine copies and gave it to my colleagues.

    2. I'm so glad this touched you, Cathy! I'm touched that you handed it out. What did they think?

  2. A beautiful perspective and so very true. I love the reminder. Thank you.
