    and dads and i talked yesterday. he kinda breaks my heart. (head injuries have a way with people. they do). he still can't find all those places in words. he might say: you know, that state we lived in once (referring to massachusetts). or: you know, he was president awhile back (meaning clinton). it's like somewhere ya gotta fill in the pieces and hope that it fits.

    he told me yesterday: we are not killers.

    no we aren't. are we.

    he grew up in the projects of plainfield. said he learned to fight with bats and chains. but he never really wanted to hurt anybody.

    told me: we would do what we needed to do in self-defense.

    yes. yes we would.

    but we aren't killers.

    he said when he dragged my boyfriend out of the house how surprised he was. said he had a hold on him like nobody's business and how he wanted to hurt him. but didn't.

    i told him when i found myself holding a knife over his heart while he was sleeping he wasn't worth going to prison over.

    no dad. we are not killers.

    i wonder sometimes, why we come back to that place of pain. it was so long ago and we are no longer broken.

    in that way at least.

    No, we are not mad, not angry, not enraged, not bitter in the least.

    We are numb, cold, troubled, heavy, guilted and chained to the darkness of regret like dogs raised on pain.

    But we've progressed too far beyond the mockeries of our youth to hold a grudge.

    Care for some tea?

      this is very pleasant. i forget you having a tough side sometimes. and no you're not the killing type. and we both know runes ain't full of shit. insecure, sure. but full of shit she is not. it's good that you fill in those spaces. many would just blow it all off as nothingness, and he'd slip away all that quicker. good heart you have. and we're all a little broken. but at least you aren't in that way any more.

      i'd like t say with some type of authority, that we remember what we need... that the gaps are unimportant, and we hold on to what gets us through... but you know I'm full of shit.

    I love your writing. It soothes me to read it. It takes me out of my own head. And that works fine for me.

      No, not in that way. I love the conversations. Poetic prose. The best have this cadence to them. It has a movement all it's own.
    This has life's flavor...even the downs have an upside...and vise versa.
    Intent does not justify the means...sometimes.

    Like always, pure, honest and moving.
    Stirs a little dust in my dark box but it is good to remember, don't want to forget...it's all part of who we are.

    Turn that totem, you're the Captain
