“…But instead, it somehow helped cleanse me of them. There was comfort for me in accepting the arbitrariness of what happened, in regarding it as a spasm of random damage in time and space that, just as randomly, a small number of human beings got the opportunity to repair. We were more capable than I had understood. We were also far more helpless.“…

Thats funny. You actually think I forgot you. That’s funny. The last time I talked to your blessed soul – standing in a dusty pottery studio you asked … which do you like better Corpus Christi or where you are now… “ and I said I don’t know. I don’t know ….

i saw three people today that looked like you. Three. Each one I saw my eye caught. Like a torn zipper. I stopped and stared.. and tried to shake my head.
…..
Three. Three people. Not you. Not you. not you. not you. Not you not you not you not you not you…..
Happy dia de los muertos
Sarah Bearah Canarah,
happy dia de los muertos…
I thought you might want to know I went to Corpus Christi…
….
I saw laughing gulls
wrapped in sea soft yellow clouds..
in an HEB parking lot. Laughing gulls. you would like it here.

Eden BBQ

I met a man here from louisana. he said he had a bad leg and “…this here dog was a good dog but he pulled too much.”

the dog had blue blue eyes.

they looked inseparable, those two. the good dog that pulled too much and the man with a bad leg.

surrounded by mesquite smoke.and white clapboard houses i wondered what it was like to live here in this dusty woodsmoke town… in the middle of the great state of texas…
i was pretty sure i could see God from here.
