Infinity on High
I wasn't ever meant to fall in love. I knew it, because my first love was Missy Riggatori and she hated me. She even spit in my animal crackers.
Kindergarten love affairs never last.
After that, I should've known. I should have. Love wasn't in the cards for Michael James Way. First Missy and my ill-fated animal crackers, then Dan Gill in ninth grade rejected my advances soundly by snapping my skateboard in half. If I didn't know any better, I'd swear that Missy and Dan teamed up against me. It just seems like the kinda thing they'd do.
And so I was put off on love for the time being. While Gerard was happily experimenting with his fellow unwashed hermits, I was reading Catwoman comics. It wouldn't be until I was nearly twenty-six years old that that bitch love would come calling at my door again, and by then I'd hoped I was disenchanted enough to ignore her. I wasn't.
Vincent van Gogh once wrote to his brother Theo, "Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all."
I wish I could've told him to shut the fuck up.
As a stargazer, my life was undone. As a lover, my life was crushed. Infinity means forever, and not even love lasts into the infinite infinity.
So, Dear Vincent van Gogh, wherever you are, shut the fuck up. Love, Mikey.
