    I'm Thinking of Starting Things.

    She sits on the other side of the bar. She is a challenge. She laughs with her girlfriend, and there is not a man in sight between then to provide competition. She does not waste time pretending to know your words, inquisitive as to vocabulary you spit as you scribble a number on a napkin; she is a poet, a painter, a physicist; she worships Pauline Kael and derides the maximalism of performance, A Woman…
