“Your soul will be canceled like a dumb TV show.”
Michael Poore, Reincarnation Blues

“Flying with Death was like being in a sleeping bag with a sensuous woman and a tarantula.”
Michael Poore, Reincarnation Blues

“The longer she lived in San Viejo, the more she appreciated the kind of things that went with living. Like having a window open when you slept, and grass, and tortillas. Being happy when people came to visit, and being happy when they left. The way certain things felt wonderful when you held them in your hands: a book, an ax, a baby, a beer, a big-ass pile of M&M’s.”
Michael Poore, Reincarnation Blues
