I love you so very,

very much.

It's okay, Mom.


Eat, gorgeous boy!

Why don't you eat meat?

Meat is a disaster

for the human race.

It will be the end of us.

I like meat.

Normally my mom's not

that stressed out.

She just got promoted,

and we bought a big apartment.

And I got an iPhone.

She's not stressed.

She's on drugs.


She smokes joints

and eats pills, too.

They'll keep her for 6 weeks,

and then she'll come home.

They keep her there?

They have to.

It makes you crazy.

You want to leave.

But you have to stay.

She's a good mom.

Yes just eat your meat.

Good night.

Please leave the lights on.


And another thing...

I left my English books at home.

They're in one of the boxes.

We'll go get them tomorrow.


Where do you sleep?


Where do you sleep?

I sleep right down the hall.

Please leave it open.

It's the red buildings.





I'm fine.

Are you crying?



I can't hear you!


I think she hung up.

When can I visit her?

She needs to be left alone.

Doesn't she want

me to come?

Can't you go do something?

Why don't you do something?

Why are you just standing here?

Why aren't you

playing your guitar?

- I don't feel like it.

- I'm trying to work here.

I don't feel like it.

My old man he

drank like a pig.

He danced or fought.

He was violent. He used to hit me.

Do you know what I did?

I listened to music.

I listened to Son House.

And it all went away.

Who's Son House?


Never mind.

He was a musician.

He was my negro god.


He played poorly.

But it had something.

I play poorly, too.

Well, so did he. But that's not the

You don't understand.

That's not the point.

It should be...

Go play your guitar.

It's the only thing that...

It's out of tune.
