    There couldn’t be long term effects, this is just pretend.
    The excitement of the moment drove you over
    Now you cannot return what was stolen.

    It wasn’t yours to give recklessly, dear

I’d always wanted to learn a new culture, a new people, and Mexico’s fiery passion was perfect, though first I had to evade their fiery and passionate police officers chasing me.

  7. Hello? Who are you? You’re just standing there–at the border between love and hate. Cross the fence. Come over here. What are you doing? Graffiti king? Graffiti hate king? No. You’ll see. You’ll see–one day, it will all be about love, and you’ll walk with the rest of us.

  9. Stepping over an invisible, intangible line seemed so ridiculous now that she had done it. Why was it that something she couldn’t even see was the key to her freedom.

  12. It was the border control in France that finally got to me. Horrible and stinky and foreign, it was. Two thousand, or maybe even more, people were pushing me this way and that, talking in their passionate, crazed language of love. A british man like me could not compete, now could he?
