Letter, on birthdays Appeared in part in Schreck’s The Manson File—No date.

Mr. Connolly — (your title)

wrote & I got it the same day yours came. He wanted to know my birthday also. Does that mean anything to you?

It meant to me that I had to write another letter that couldn’t get too real or it would be misunderstood.
I can’t help you with your school report. Earth cries and you want my birthdate. If the report had something to do with survival when the money reality falls, you wouldn’t know what to write because the money mom holds the leash & the reigns—mom earth is under her trampling discontent—Look at the Big Bitch selling pieces of Air, Land, Water & her children’s asses

And you people look down at me.

When you are gasping for air we’ll see who is hysterical.

I’m not fighting for a cause. I’m fighting for my life, trapped by my own knowing. (The soul is it’s own reward). But you sit back and enjoy your T.V. life a little longer.

Don’t let your personality fool you into being offended. Personalities & words are just clothes. I really don’t play that birthday game.
