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.

    We hold many worlds inside our hands. When those worlds end up connecting, what strange and wondrous feeling can move through us, even more so when those worlds connect themselves separate from anything we have done to do such. Such a good feeling when this large world is made smaller.

    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.

  • 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.
