It seems as if we don’t know how to speak; it seems as if there are words which escape, which are missing, which have gone away and left us to ourselves, tangled up in snares and threads. - Pablo Neruda, from "Emerging"

  3. monkey chains

    Today I found a key chain over 10 years old—a sparkled chimp. A section of its ring missing, but still it holds the perfectly portioned half-moon mouth, black eyes and nose, and slightly raised eyebrow. In its belly, B-E-S-T is embossed, almost blending with its speckled background from dust and wear.

    Christmas—I am in the fourth grade. A part of the gift of odds and ends nine-year-old money can buy is a pair of key chained monkeys—each with his own title. BEST and FRIEND. When I give them to her she grins, says, “You take this one, ‘cause you’re the best. I’m just the friend.” We embrace.

    12 years later I rub the letters like prayer beads and remember our last exchange. Months before, I prod her to tell me why she doesn’t talk to me…I just lose track of people and time…why…I just get busy. Her answers leave holes in my memory. We shoot darts at each other through badly lit screens and qwerty keyboards to see who leaves with the most blood. She hits a vein with her final heave…Goddnight, God bless. Good luck with everything u do. U are great and always will be...bye.

    An f-you disguised in well wishes and God blessing—I am no longer the best.

  7. Anonymous said: why are you so obsessed with the bible


    The same reason I’m obsessed with drinking water and breathing oxygen.

  8. "At this moment, there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just now facing the truth. Some are evil men, that war with good. And some are good, struggling with evil. 6 billion people in the world. 6 billion souls. And sometimes, all you need is one."

    An old sketch of Black Rage, done in my living room. Strange, the course of things. Peace for MO.
