A Story Found
excerpted - part 1
with applebobbed hair I set to write of the other life lived. the other time mistaken. without mistakes.
lots of sloughing off of the excess.
and can you wish for something you'll never love to have?
what is that?
Celeste comes in with, "i can't begin to sympathize with their situation."
after all the news reports.
we wait. patiently, like a patient, say.
Indigo wastes an evil speller.
Leslie gets up and tosses the papers on the table.
and so we walk away for a while.
something wicked i think and still don't know what came of it all.
in the middle of a huge expanse we find your ghost in heels and the ghost of the 8 year-old paraplegic me. they seem to be lost.
they were trying to keep a promise.
this promise this promise.
taped and pasted with care. brush cleaned.
sand and wind and memories blow their perfect clothes. a perfect rustle in a perfect moment. and they don't even know. no idea. the treasured promise at their feet.
they're facing south.
from across the expanse we feed each other. it is difficult. it is chicken.
we really don't get fed. but there is the effort, which is consoling, bad sa too.
but sad too.
