storm is threatening | the best way to carry a baby | We wants safety


the best way to carry a baby

What is it about this world of color and life and the living we find so strange, so threatening and wrong, so deeply, darkly, dangerously not-us?

Bermuda shorts stars n stripes ball cap senior guy in line at ice cream shop on Solano, will you die if exposed to it, as we were always taught about radiation after the blast?  

Or is this perhaps what being born feels like, though we will remember nothing of what came before, except for a single word, and never be able to say it, and the look on your face, as you quickly turn away, and I shuffle past, tells me I ought to speak for myself?
