“We are not what we think we are, we are what we hide.” – Andre Malraux
~Beneath his grey, sharkskin Ralph Lauren suit, I hear from a dependable source, perhaps somebody who knew him in a past life, an uninhibited life, that his arms are rich and fiery and rebelliously covered with tattoos: sleeves of black, blue, red, skin of verse, inky maps of who he truly is, or was, or wants to become.

~I want to break chains, crash from cages, rise up, & save the world–Kim Sisto Robinson
“The thing about hearts is that they always want to keep beating.”

“Once you are a warrior, you must live like one. You can’t be afraid to fight against and destroy anything that fights against what is right.” — Melita Tessy

I Come From Pure Love…
So much love that sometimes I think I shall burst in midair like one of those overblown birthday balloons. When my family gets together, the volume pumps up like a rock concert, heavy metal, Led Zeppelin, Joplin, well, you get the idea.
——My family copes with my sister’s murder in various degrees.
For example, I make my brain numb for almost a year with merlot, cabernet, pinot noir, Mary Oliver, and Jesus. I can’t walk or breathe after the execution, but I can write. This is my sanity, my death, my new universe.
