Short Short Story about Work
I thought about prayer today, while I cut up a whole green cabbage for dinner. Knife
angled down to where it slides through the leaves in one smooth motion, making halves
and quarters and eighths. Sliced the roots out and set them aside for stock, and I
thanked god for the blessing of a good sharp knife. Your dog is old old and blind and
deaf, but alive and still hopeful, and I watched her shuffle her nose over the dirty
tiles of the kitchen floor. I thought about my grandfather praying for work in the
stories my mother used to tell me when she cooked. Carrots, potatoes, onion and cabbage
go into cold salted water, roots and wilted leaves and stems for stock or for the dog.
That morning I had a future and a plan and a full list for the grocery store, and then
that morning I called the hiring manager. Now it's the evening, and I need to talk to my
mother somehow, and ask her to tell me how that story ended.

Short Short Story about Driving
There was the road, and the blue and white thunderclouds rolling over the lake. There were deerflies crowding my car window on a long slow drive through the wildlife preserve, their orange wings glowing in the slanted evening sun. There was the longest drive from one end of our state to the other, talking over hot bad black tea and the steam of cardboard wrapped pumpkin pies, from our old home to a new dream. There were memories of days and weeks lost in the threat of fear and the loss of security and home. There were so many words and stories we need to remember again, we need to find them again together, if I can just find you.

Short Short Story about 1995
There's a lot that God doesn't see in the fall of a sparrow. Summer in 1995 was a long memory of dry skin and evenings reading the Two Towers. Red haze and yellowed clouds in the sky while walking hand in hand with my sisters through a hospital parking lot in Detroit. No writer has ever managed to do justice to an evening in a person's life, and biography is the only perfect form of failure. The summer of 1995 was one evening long, and no one saw everything that happened that evening. God sees the little sparrow fall, but he'll never see where it stops.

I think i forgot to be here for a bit, sorry about that. Moving is never my favorite thing, and add to that the fact that i'm living completely on my own for the first time in a few years... crazy times.

How are you?
  • Watching: the rainy sky.
  • Drinking: tea
