Lost Man in Minivan

Lilith and I stopped to talk to a woman in a red HSTA shirt. She said Lily looked thirsty. We were standing quietly while Lily sat in front of her, when an old beaten up blue minivan swerved over. Inside a local Asian guy, maybe in his 40s, long wavy hair and something of a beard. What is this? he asked. Are these houses new? When did they put them in? To which I responded, the 1970s.
I told him how to get out of the neighborhood by turning right and going down the hill. So he turned right, only to do an awkward u-turn in front of someone else. As he headed downhill, he muttered through the window, something about the nice dog.

September travels & events

The first, a reading, will be at the College of Wooster. Details to come.

The second event will be for Lindenwood's MFA program in St. Louis. See here for details.

And of course there will be this: 

On September 20, I'll be in Volcano to help lead an event on Literature in Response to Kilauea.

30 August 2018

I want to write an honest sentence, and then I want to revise it. Not to put it in a vise and clamp it down, but place it in a different light. I saw a sea urchin shell on a rock wall, spines spilling around it. Each a black wand, at one end a white plug that sat in the skeleton's ball and socket. The philosopher saw an octopus dying, her body parts dissolving in sea water. Death is one such revision. So is breath as it runs its tunnel. Describe the feeling in your chest, the brightness in your spine, and I will say it back. “We're all going to die,” Marthe said, “and no one will remember us. That's ok.” The urchin is a lantern: its top is anus, and its bottom mouth. The entire body might make a compound eye. I see it through a chain link fence, and the mechanical waterfall beyond. A blaze of purple shows in my photograph.

The Oprah Administration

A white man just shy of middle age who wore a multi-colored jacket asked the clerks at BookEnds in Kailua what the word is for someone who deals in old books. No one seemed to know, so I offered up "antiquarian." After he pronounced it "antiquarium" a couple times, I suggested that would mean "dealing in old fish." He liked the male clerk's frizzy hair and said it likely "got him far." Asked the clerk if he was a reader. Did he work? "Yes, here at the book store." He was half-Mexican, he said, probably Mayan or Aztec, and wondered if they carried a book about Mexico. Said he'd served in the United States Navy under the Oprah Administration. Said that twice. His pineal gland had "detonated," like the twin towers. Ran away from home at 16 and lived on the street. Remarked on the female clerk's hair, the purple ends. "Where did you get that done?" "At the hair salon." "Really nice." He walked out, saying he'd be back.

25 August 2018

I want to write an honest sentence. We bathe us in our blood money, covering arms and shoulders with it, bearing it down stairs to join our families, seated on their blood-red couches. Everyone was so relaxed, wiping blood off their plates, their forks, their teeth. Her smile beamed red until gravity changed its hue. The house fits; no corner outgrows itself into dim and unannounced hallways. There are no rats, no mice, hardly any roaches to drink from puddles, carry the thick substance in sippy cups to their young. Despite the blood, floors are clean, walls hung with over-familiar paintings. In one, a girl seems to writhe on the bed, a cat's fur stretched like orange taffy until it blurs. “Many victims feel this way.” The scent of the old man's breath inhabits the stuffed chair he sat in. Great pretender. In a dream, he comes to ask where he should go and is sent away for good; but still he comes back, holding the promise of suicide on his palm, the lure of self-hate. He was a very careful man whom we care for even in his death. What dreams his ashes have at the top of the ridge near the bunkers, finally able to fly from the broken need of his blood. The other will be a stronger man for this, I'm told, his pale face filling with color as he re-organizes his memories in a bank. But how can he reclaim his blood, and where to put it inside? There's a broken fingernail, a sore thumb, a cut on his ankle. Hand me the siphon, the needle; let me dig in.

22 August 2018

I want to write an honest sentence. My son leaves to do an honest day's work, while I stay home to write sentences. The television splits its screen between two dumb-faced courthouses. After one verdict, a woman in a blue dress sprints away from one of them. We talk about persuading those who will not be persuaded. It's not logic we reach for, but a counter-emotion to fear. The man who took beautiful photos of our kids at the pool claimed Clinton's henchmen called him every night to threaten his life. (I wrote “lie.”) A former student thought there was a bug in his penis, installed by the government. Paranoia requires system, or is it the other way? Do not disturb the toothbrush in the cup or the place-setting at dinner. They are as they should be present. We assume the air, the trade wind through the palm with one dead frond, the round pot our dog digs in, fledgling bird songs, an entire world free of twitter and white nationalism. It no longer seems macabre to imagine my own death, but brute anticipation of fact. My dog pokes his nose into the white cat's side. He's the cat who's 14 on one block and four on the next, the one who comes when you call him. Orange splotch on his narrow white face, above pellucid blue eyes. Nearing 60, I pause to watch, scratch the cat, then turn up the hill with my dog.

13 August 2018

I want to write an honest sentence. Humility has to do with the soil, my neighbor tells his son. To be soiled is another thing. We draw in the word “dignity” only to dignify our choices: the retirement home radiates the word in its tables and chairs. There's nothing plastic about dignity. I refuse to dignify his tweet about lowlifes and low IQs; he's at the level of humility, but not playing it well. Shit might be the better word, its clean crisp sound. He said my poem seemed more finished than most, which meant that it had ended, like the final “t” sound of lock on a shed door. She cannot bear to take her lover's toothbrush out of their cup. He takes pictures of his empty house. She describes her dreams, gets her telephone number right, but he's gone, nonetheless. I would like to see a decent country again before I die, the poet writes to me. On the eve of my 60th, I think about death and country, numbers and tooth brushes. Nothing seems trivial, or all. The printer reads “brother”; the dog under my bed snores. There will be no secret recordings. The distinction between pain and suffering is worth noting; suffering is pain after you think about it. To render hurt into language is to suffer from it. It is hurt, but it is also sound. Sound clots like blood where the wisdom tooth was. Patrick Wisdom got his first major league hit. Wisdom is the ribbon at the end of the race; we cut through it with our flailing bodies. When I dreamed in French, I couldn't speak it, but everyone else's trilled. I was at the grocery store counter, trying to buy my goods. The air smelled of grilled chestnuts and the film ended in very slow motion.

I want to write an honest sentence. Interrupted, she said she lives alone with her cats, speaks whenever she feels like it. Laughter precludes apology. Yes, there was a meeting, but results were disappointing, and besides nothing was illegal. Who's to know which statement is true, the one we suspect, or the one we wish for? They're all sentences, or most of them, carrying bare minimum of verb and noun toward a moment of confusion or collusion. Change the word to “conspiracy.” Or “piracy.” The earthquakes stopped; a day later and apropos of nothing, my bedside lamp fell to the floor. To live on an earth without intention is to suffer. We could demand that Pele apologize, but the Christians down Highway 11 have declared her “fake news.” She at least intends, though what we cannot know. What I love about the teachings is their being drenched in metaphor; we talk not about yearning, but about potato chips. Those who were adopted live inside the metaphors the rest of you weave. It's a mythological condition, loss and recovery acted out by the village clown. It was everything I'd read all these years, staged before me, except the stage was also real. The eyes of the elders gazed at me through narrow, lined faces. I drank my tea from a glass and gazed back. The meeting was about adoptions, and then it was about dirt.

3 August 2018

I want to write an honest sentence. Start again from the so-called “prompt'; the age demands speed, but ordains surface complexity. All you need know is contained in Manafort's ostrich coat. An ostrich sprints down an Australian road, while professional goats eat up Boise's flowers. They are browsers, not grazers, my son's girlfriend says, chuckling at the company that promises well-cut lawns. What it means to grow old. What it means to be on the downside of the arch in a tub, having peered through portholes at a city that promises an opening for us white folks. How easily information turns to judgment, judgment to hectoring. Who can tell the hurricane from the volcanic “event”? Do I send him black sand and lava rock, despite Pele or a park ranger's mythological purchase? My book on ethics sits in the shed, softening in the humid air. The man in ostrich coat hid income on his taxes. “Our houses are worth nothing now. Should we pay?” To which the man from the county said, “Yes, we're still collecting.” What it means to pay, or pay off, to offer a defense so flimsy it demands a pardon. What it means to grow old at such a time, when earth casts off her coat and magma fills 300,000 Olympic size pools (for those of you not familiar with scientific lingo). To lose one's “brother” or one's wife. Or, in depression, to lose what is not there but feels lost, the threat of a lava tube below the surface of one of three highways across the island. One woman asked and asked again who would watch for her kids who play on the emergency by-pass road. My neighbor leaned over, whispering, “she should tell her kids not to play there.” Sun through the front windows, mist to the side, earth stumbles underneath. Time lapses like the crater spilling rock (deeper than the Empire State Building). We compare these events to objects, somewhere on the road to the volcano where the invasive species have settled. The air breathes their perfume. When the wind shifts, it'll be sulfur dioxide.

I want to write an honest sentence. The difference between an order and a should construction is likely a matter of timing. In the Sessions of sweet silent thought the attorney general will be canned, his deputy sent out to pasture. A cow mooed this morning, a clock ticks; as I walked up the hill, I heard an earthquake in the groaning of the nearest house. My friend could call them to the decimal point before she stopped noticing. The house is a boat, anchored on porous earth. Ohia trees stand, not yet victims of the virus; coqui frogs chant a mile away, but not here, and the air is only sometimes acid. A violet belt of vog weaves through the Saddle, and where the horizon was is now a pastel smudge. It's not what we can't see that disturbs us, but that we see it laid out before us. He reached for the tortoise, but its legs were boiling away. A little girl died in ICE custody. They're summer camps, the president says, horrified his campaign director was put in solitary. They were all screaming obscenities, but we see her in a bubble, the blonde woman whose third finger thrusts forward at the reporter, face tangled, body coiled. She and they are making America great again. We could state the obvious in perpetuity, but where would it get us? To the next station of what cross? I wondered what the X meant in Charing X Road. The pope puts a cardinal in solitary to work on penance, which sounds like what he showed his altar boys. Sound unsenses us. Get as close as you can to the aching beams and the crickets. Cut out the middlemen, the lobbyists of meaning, the men in ostrich coats. Ostracize the priests, the grandfathers, the kind man across the street, the military baby-sitter, the perverted customs agent. I have put a good face on it, my friend says, but I am so disillusioned, so tired. As the Buddhists say, we are softened. Marvel at those who remain so solid on their solid earth.
