She Gets Fran Lebowitz

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while.

I have been crazy busy,

still busy but,

taking a few minutes.

Catherine and I are going to see,

Fran Lebowitz tonight,

here in my beautiful ugly.

Woo Hoo!

She will be interviewed,

take questions from the audience,

and then sign books.

Catherine bought the tickets,

way back in July,

I remember telling her,

“I guess you believe in the future of our relationship”

I think she smiled, maybe even laughed a little.

Catherine is a woman who listens more,

than she talks.

Catherine like me, loves Fran.

We both get her,

she is snarky and very New York.

A woman who has suffered from writer’s block,

for decades.

I liked Fran’s book,

she wrote two but,

I own the compilation:

The Fran Lebowitz Reader.

However I think she really shines,

as a speaker.

I love everything about her,

her cadence, her style,

her fuck you attitude,

I am not like her,

and neither is Catherine,

we are grown women,

who think and speak,

for ourselves.

We are not New Yorkers,

we are Montrealers,

less angry,

more happy.

But, just as she loves New York,

and is very critical of it,

I love my beautiful ugly,

and see it warts and all.

So does Catherine,

but, Catherine is more polite,

more quiet.

Underneath the quiet,

lives a true urban woman.

She loves Montreal,

her plateau,

her museums, galleries, art scene,

bookstores and urban streets,

and she gets,


I am one lucky butch,


Be still my heart.

Be well you all.

Later girls,

I am a bookish butch in my mid early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream
