Do feel free to read all of the "Pine America" at the Vol. 1 Brooklyn here. Though do enjoy some excerpt below as well, assuming that's your thing. Is that your thing? Excellent.
"The combo-platter of hanging out with Mark — who has now changed his name to 'Pine America' and refuses to talk to anyone who does not address him as such — and my newest friend, a kid I met at work and nicknamed 'Chongo,' is maddening. Pine America has now started to dress in nothing but white linen: dress shirts unbuttoned to below the nipples, white canvas Vans with no socks, wrinkled white linen pants with big cuffs and white sport coats. Chongo likes to egg Pine America on all the time — calling him Mark to get him riled up and then the both of them break out in their twin nasal laughs, “You‘re a motherfucker, man“ being the usual endnote."
