A slow memorial

Postby A rope leash » Fri Oct 31, 2003 8:52 pm

I'm clearly past the limit, and not thinking clearly.

I wanted it to be art, symbolizing the ironic misconceptions that folks have regarding what is scary. Spiders, cats, hounds from Hell, they're all pretty tame in the real world. Halloween exploits them.

Even bats.

What's really scary is people.

Clearly I'm not thinking, and I'm really quite ill.

It's been a rough couple of weeks.

So what if I go crazy?

I'm pretty sure I'll be okay. I wrote it all out, you know.

He'll never read it.

Legacy

So I wrote it out, but this isn't it. I've been fucking around with a sort of pictorial poetry, and it's getting us nowhere. It's about the love of brothers, and the loss of them.

He enjoyed what life he had.

He did not tolerate conflict.

Hey, you got to hide your love away...

A man of peace

He wasn't religious, and he seemed to be little concerned with it.

Image

He wouldn't allow fighting.

At his service, however, there were some dueling religions.

Baptists vs Buddists.

It was appropriate for me not to have spoken. I savored the ridiculous irony, as I'm sure he would have.

I mean, the last thing we need is someone who doesn't believe in some fantasy realm of life-after-life saying the obvious.

That would not be comforting.

Everybody's crazy but me!

I wrote it out.



He passed away while sleeping, not hard to do when you've got morphine, I suppose.

Image

In a way I feel like I've lost all my brothers. I'll never be as close to them as I was to him.

My sisters, too.

They're all nuts.

The kettle is black.

gone

Postby A rope leash » Fri Oct 31, 2003 10:26 pm

He passed away just a few minutes before I arrived. After years of suffering in what everyone could see was an unsurvivable body, he could no longer sustain it, and he ceased to exist as an entity.

Image

How can you be without your brain? Are we not our memory's store?

What can you see without your eyes?

How can Micheal be Micheal when what contained him is no longer viable?

I'm pretty sure that dead is dead.

Live now.
