Poem

August 13, 2010

2:46 PM on A Friday

I live in Brooklyn.

I am twenty-six and unemployed.

Here is what I’ve had to eat today:

one iced coffee, a granola bar, most of an avocado, one spoonful of peanut butter from the jar, and a 16 oz. Budweiser.

In Desperate Need

August 13, 2010

Dear Welfare Department,

Please give me some money because it is a downright shame that I have had to live my life up until now without these, and to ask me to continue to lead this empty, Star Wars pancake mold-less life is a crime against humanity.

Buy me these!

Star Wars™ Pancake Molds

$19.95

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a Jedi Kitchen Master created an epic breakfast to unleash the power of his Jedi Padawan. Using the Force™, he created three nonstick steel pancake molds in honor of his favorite galactic heroes and villains: Yoda™, Darth Vader™ and a stormtrooper™. Our Star Wars molds couldn’t be easier to use. Just place them with their handles up on a preheated griddle then pour in your batter. After the first side has set, remove the molds and flip the pancakes. Serve a stack drenched in your favorite syrup – and let the adventures begin. Hand-wash. 4 1/2″ to 7 3/4” wide. Fold-down handles. Set of three.

All Happy Families

August 12, 2010

I’m reading this story in the New York Times right now about a member of the Carnegie family who lives on a tiny, isolated, most likely wind-swept island up in Maine and wrote a book about her family’s history of mental illness.  Her daughter, pseudonym Sandra, now 55, first diagnosed with schizophrenia and then with BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) also lives on the island.  Excerpt:

[The author of the book] discovered Jungian analysis and Transcendental Meditation and stopped speaking to her own father, though he lived, until his death, in a house within view of hers. He was, she has come to believe, as ill in his own way as Lucy, who was as ill as Sandra. In time, Sandra married, had two children and then divorced. Now 55, she has a house on Crescent Island, and the company of a companion hired by her parents.

The person I’m MOST interested in, based upon this excerpt, is the paid companion.  What is that like?  Do they just hang out, or is her BPD so bad Sandra needs to be taken care of?  What kind of melancholy does she (I’m assuming it’s a female) face on those chilly New England island nights?

In Memory of a Lovely Time

“Despedida”

Enter mi amor y yo han de levantarse

trescientas noches como trescientas paredes

y el mar sera una magia entre nosotros.

No habra sino recuerdos.

Oh tardes merecidas por la pena,

noches esperanzadas de mirarte,

campos de mi camino, firmamento

que estoy viendo y perdiendo…

Definitiva como un marmol

entristecera tu ausencia otras tardes.
