note to a friend

 

 

 

 

“when creating, be kind to your doubt,
hear it out, thank it for its concern,
and reassure it that you are an artist,
and risk is essential.”

~ Nayyirah Waheed

stopped by for a visit
seems an appropriate end
to the month of January

“I’m jealous of nature. It just expresses itself without judgment, the comparison with others, worry or complaints. And because of this very fact, it heals us in ways we can’t even imagine.”

~ Jacinta Mpalyenkana

 

 

 

 

before the age of monstrosities

 

when a small comfortable home
was just enough

July 3, 1971
driving my friend’s family’s Lincoln Continental
from Edgartown to Vineyard Haven
picked up few hitchhikers along the way
someone turned on the radio
to the news that Jim Morrison had died
