"They never saw their child again." From Simple Hans and Other Funny Pictures and Stories, 1854.

I wake to the engine rev of a car en route. A fly breaks my eye’s momentum, and lures me to the window. It was raining while I dreamed of thunder, like a ghost story with a perfectly logical explanation.
"The leaves are always falling or in flux, just as I am not what I asked for, no longer the boy to whom my father gave his name. My wounds are my own."
In the gale outside, he sees apparitions of the past, faces he’s synthesized over the years: the flaming red Ziggy Stardust mullet, the fascist-chic of the Thin White Duke, images from other eras he spent functioning in myth; now, he finds himself slipping inexorably, apocalyptically back into it, for the first time in a decade.
He has just finished recording.
Just ordered a 2015 Hobonichi Planner cause I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.
