About The Other Man’s Grass

I don’t know much, but I know this… New Yorkers have a tendency to presume that they are missing out on something. That they are missing out on some sort of key. A key to provide a better time than they are capable of providing themselves. The other man’s grass is astro-turf and it’s better.

Our reality contradicts official dogma every day and every way. Yet still New Yorkers believe (or may be they just clime to believe) that dreams could and would come true. Everybody wants to be hugely rich and famous and yet most of us are not. Nonetheless the concrete certainty that each person could have everything they ever wanted simply by wanting it is a stationary human right.

So many laws contradict actual personal experience, but we have the conspicuous public display of spiritual orthodoxy and it holds us happy.
