A Desperate Time, A Desperate Measure
From: Zeke Krahlin
To: Eleanor Cooney

Besides sending my “Vested Interest” letter to Larkin, I mailed a
signed copy to my brother and requested that he append it to my last
will and testament. But here the plot thickens as I realize what my
next step should be:

I now have many good friends, mostly on the streets, with whom I will share this letter, and make them aware of how Medi-Cal has destroyed any chance of receiving affordable health care (which on my low income should be $0.00). They will then spread my words via their own extended street family…after which time several will approach Larkin outside of Twin Peaks Tavern, and say something like:

“We are aware of Zeke’s difficult situation, your relationship with
him, and your continued harassment towards him. It is time to be a
good friend to him, keep him in good health, and end your wrongful
gossip. We will be watching.”


“Larkin, you have to invite Zeke into the same bars you frequent,
after making it clear to customers and workers alike, that Zeke has
never stalked you.”

At intervals–say, twice per week–they’ll come up to Larkin and ask:

“Have you seen Zeke today?” And if he says no, they’ll persist: “Why not?”

If he doesn’t do what I requested in my letter, my street buddies will
shame him in public and hang around him outside of Twin Peaks or any
other bar, when he steps out for his smoke.

That was just one example of how they can embarrass and annoy him w/o crossing into the illegal. I’m sure they’ll come up with various and effective /other/ schemes all on their own. If Larkin never complies (though I’m sure he will) he’ll wind up being ridiculed out of my neighborhood, where he also resides. He is well connected with rich gay bar owners, patrons and the like…so I’m sure he has access to funding my medical needs.

And goddess forbid I should ever suffer major, debilitating illness,
injury, or death! Can you imagine the wrath that shall befall My
Wonderful Warlock then? I think Larkin will quickly get a clue.

We shall both accomplish great deeds on behalf of LGBT Rights, now
that this albatross has fallen from our necks.

{{ We need to keep momentum on job/housing anti-discrimination parity, and need to turn more attention to fellow gays in more oppressed areas such as Africa, the Islamic world, Russia. I hope that American gays will not become so complacent that they will fail to feel a sense of shared struggle with the rest of the world. }}

Don’t forget that some of us here in the USA remain threatened with an early death, needless suffering and social isolation. For we are low income, and Obamacare has failed to expand Medicaid w/o charging an absurd and cruel monthly share of cost. Mine is $518!!!

Now how do you think I’ll fare in my “golden” years, as I will need
more and more health care. I am denied even preventative aids,
including what’s required to stave off blindness.

Several, yes…and they have their own friends outside my circle. And
they’d just love to stir things up and make their days less boring and
harsh. These fellows are intelligent, sweet natured, handsome and
(best of all) quite mischievous! But I will tell each of them it’s
just an idea, no one has to comply. I’ll still love them, won’t be
disappointed or angry.

Besides, I’m sure this is exactly how Larkin wants me to retaliate.
He’s playing King of the Hill, challenging me to best him. I think
Larkin will have the time of his life, pretending I successfully
blackmailed him, and he has no other choice but to obey.

Me and Gregory (my newest street pal) had a hilarious encounter
w/Larkin just a few days ago. I plan to write about it soon. Suffice
for now, to say that Greg was sporting my sign (instead of myself)
that said “I am not Larkin’s stalker, I’m his boyfriend,” when Larkin
showed up.

The Plot Coagulates
From: Zeke Krahlin
To: Eleanor Cooney


Here’s another idea: have all the homeless in The Castro wear the same sign: “I am not Larkin’s stalker, I’m his boyfriend.” Easy enough to accomplish, as cardboard, string and even pens are freely accessible. A group of them congregate daily about Twin Peaks Tavern, one or more of whom is a dedicated ally. I can imagine Larkin arriving one afternoon to witness the street bums lolling about his turf with that sign flung about their necks. Tee-hee, I /am/ a scamp! But I want to make one thing perfectly queer:

If your desire for vengeance is justified (as is mine), you must achieve that /only/ with compassion and humor a la The Buddha’s guidance. And I think I’m doing a pretty damn good job of it! Why /is/ Larkin putting me through all these difficult tests, if indeed his goal is kind rather than hostile? Here’s your answer:

That I may be challenged to always find a loving solution to seemingly-nasty attacks, so that I grow very strong in spirit, to finally crack open life’s concrete like a victorious, brave little sprout. As well as to become a true hero in my own right.

I LOVE ALL THIS BRAINSTORMING! Here comes my next manic high, yippee-doo!

BTW did you view yet, my “Scooby-Doo Porn” page that I printed out and sent to Larkin? It will crack you up.
