Days: James Li

James Li

He spent more time in the chat rooms
than talking with his wife. He tried
to feel bad about it but each try
created another virtual self, a new profile
for which he had to choose
height, weight, “shoe” size, cut
or uncut, what he liked.
A 6’2 blond Californian with a taste for SM
cried when his wife left for her mother’s house.
When he signed the divorce papers,
he lived in Alaska,
and weighed 260 pounds.

This is wonderful. What a life of alter egos we lead - shame some systems only recognise the one!
