Ten years gone...Motorcycle boots.
The doorway of ‘The Three Crowns.’
So very few fragments of you
That I have left in my head…
And the nightmare of your tragedy
Is still burned into my mind.
Twice through fire.
The first agony,
The second to lay you to rest
From the remains of tortured flesh.
I hope you found your peace.
Ten YearsTen years.
That’s how long you’ve been gone.
Like the pink sands
In the hourglass I broke as a child aged four.
My fathers grandmother-- the family matriarch,
Big-hearted and wonderful…
But now only a face and a smile
That I can remember from the photographs--
Although I can still taste the thick-cut toast soldiers
And boiled eggs you made me
For breakfast one morning twenty-seven years ago.
on old sanzu - absolutely true fictionlast fall i stole my friend down by the tama river. we sang. we danced. we skipped dead fish like rocks and watched them get swallowed by the undertow. we got sick off of bad chinese food and went skinny-dipping and then a week later she drowned herself.
her uncle was a yakuza, i think, but he really just wanted to be al pacino or something. anyway, she loved him a lot. maybe that’s why she went down the way she went down; cement shoes. not real cement, but it was the same idea. she had two cloth bags with yellow-painted cinderblocks inside, and they were tied to her ankles like the prisoners’ chains from o brother where art thou.
in my mind’s eye i can see her, limping dreadfully close to the edge of the current, her left hand gripping at her breasts through a loose t-shirt. kneeling by the wastelands, elbows in the gravel, crawling forward out into the water. angry like a dermis under wool, all teeth and salt and sand. sleepy, submissive, sublimated.
