I'm a husband. And a dad. I'm making a Hulk quilt for my daughter. My wife gives the best massages and I'm not just saying that. I once jumped off a bridge because my friend did so hypotheticals mean nothing to me.

    Last night after the end of the world had already begun, I woke briefly from my dreams to touch my foot to yours. What a shining necklace that hangs inside the middle of my body.

  • Unfortunate that it’s a Levi’s commercial, but this is the only known recording of Walt Whitman’s voice.

  • 7 years ago today she passed. This was the poem I wrote to deal with it. The second poem I ever wrote out of only 5 or 6, still a little rough around the edges.

    I think I’m about 2 in this picture, just after we came here from Chile. I miss her.

     

    The Birth

    My world became unhinged
    There were 2 pillars in my life (at least)-
    Mother, Father.
    The doctor came back and shook one of those pillars.

    He said we’d lose that pillar in 6 to 9 months.
    In the time it takes for a birth we might have a death.

    I knew it would happen sooner or later,
    but sooner?

    But in that span of death we saw a birth.
    And like every birth it was a miracle.
    My Mother grew stronger than she’d ever been-
    just try and mess with her now.
    And after years of morning sickness and labor we felt the birth
    of family unity.

    And I,
    I felt understanding kicking inside me.
    For in that excruciating beautiful moment I felt It.
    The indescribable pain felt by the Beauty.
    In that God given moment I felt Him
    Felt Him in a way no measure of comfort can bring
    It was Him
    His suffering.

    That damn blessed doctor brought me the news that I could take a step towards God.

    You who gave birth to the two of us also gave birth to this. 

    Thank you, Mom.
