Memoirs of My Nervous Illness-Brandon Brown

SEE YOU LATER YOU PIGEON

A genius lives inside this illness
living large on the residue of
laundered spirits obtained on loan
in the interest of, well, interest

when my toxins began to
articulate their feelings in
representative poetry and
rhyming quatrains didn’t I go
expect some diagnosis? Didn’t I
need some tonic / help?

maggie and i have been discussing future homes for the minor americans.... so far we both agree that NY and Philly are at the top of the list. at the bottom of my list is Chicago and at the bottom of maggie's list is San Francisco. Other States on the list are MA and NC.

one of our very good dog friends, codi ficarra, is in the process of passing. we have spent a good deal of time with her this past week and also went by this afternoon. she is looking much more peaceful today than we've seen her.




we love you codi.
