Praxis of Solitude: A Letter-in-Progress (a poem for my nephew on his 9th birthday)

for CJ & Carmela
written on 11 October 2012

you & I are standing at the bottom of the staircase at grandma’s house
there’s a Buzz Lightyear figurine at the edge of a step
perhaps Buzz is ready to fly or fall with style

you are not yet three years old
you point to Buzz & you say: Buzz is sad
& I say nothing, but I wonder how you know sadness so soon
I wonder how you came up with blaming your cousin
for breaking your heart:
you say: God put my heart here & [she] taked it out a breaked it

what’s next? what’s next? what’s N-X-E-T?

I can’t decide what I want to write come January 1, 2014.

Can you help me decide?

Which project would you like to read raw drafts of? Which craft (short fiction, play, performance) would you like to read reflections about?

Short Stories
The collection of short stories is titled, The Savage Lovebird. Basically, I’ll be returning to my MFA thesis (2004-2006). This collection of short stories is super rough, but I think I can make something interesting happen after having put it away for so many years!

Play
The play is titled, You Will Gonna Go Crazy. You can read about it HERE. I’ve been meaning to return to this project for the past few years. It is my most important work to date!

Performance
The performance is titled, The Passion of El Hulk Hogancito. You can read details HERE. I know I’ve already performed this several times, but I think it’s worth another revision and tour of performances. I have been itching to get out there and perform. What say you?

My Friends, I need your help: Please vote for one. It’ll help settle the voices in my head.
