So this is the way the day ends:              with a gnash of teeth and harumphs  from heaven, a black mood smiting  the clueless blue. Clouds snag on the hills              and drag a downpour like torn lace.    Trees writhe like Pentecostals. But it’s too late to coax God to be good,                                                     too late to grovel with tears or hosannas: nothing swerves the will of a whirlwind.  It lifts up the loose and unhinged, bangs              them down the street, hurls them at the helpless  glass, till the panicked air  sickens and sirens wail for steeples              and strip joints and trailers strung out  along the soft shoulders of secondary roads— and nothing’s blesséd but the cockroach,              the mole in the ground, the immortal  roots of the mean buckthorn.

Gale Force Hymn


So this is the way the day ends:
            with a gnash of teeth and harumphs
from heaven, a black mood smiting

the clueless blue. Clouds snag on the hills
            and drag a downpour like torn lace.   
Trees writhe like Pentecostals.

But it’s too late to coax God to be good,                                                     too late to grovel with tears or hosannas:
nothing swerves the will of a whirlwind.

It lifts up the loose and unhinged, bangs
            them down the street, hurls them at the helpless
glass, till the panicked air

sickens and sirens wail for steeples
            and strip joints and trailers strung out
along the soft shoulders of secondary roads—

and nothing’s blesséd but the cockroach,
            the mole in the ground, the immortal
roots of the mean buckthorn.

Boston Zine Fest exhibitor #7: MJ RobinsonMJ Robinson draws fictional and auto-bio poems and stories about characters who are lost, found, and/or somewhere in-between. MJ went to Oberlin College, where they co-founded the Oberlin Comics Collective. After graduating, they spent the summer in Alaska with the Sitka Fellows Program, where they started work on their first graphic novel. MJ is now living in Providence, RI, and they will be coming up to BZF with armfuls of comics, prints, and patches.

I’m tabling at BZF next Sunday, Oct. 12th!

~proud~

Bittersweet to see my hero MJ Robinson attending BZF before me cuz I miss Boston and have always regretted not getting involved with the zine scene before I moved away. Xtra bittersweet cause I’m gonna be returning to Boston just a couple weeks too late. Anyway, MJ is a rising superstar so get out there and support our troops, east coast folks. I’m with you in spirit, BZF!

Gael García Bernal Explores Migrant’s Tragic Journey in New Documentary “Who is Dayani Cristal?”

In August 2010, border patrol officers found a migrant’s decomposing body in Arizona’s infamous “corridor of death.” His only identifiable feature was a tattoo that read “Dayani Cristal.”

The film follows García Bernal as he travels the migrant trail from Honduras through Mexico to cross the American border. 

According to a press release, “the film brings viewers intimately close to the often-invisible lives that have been affected by by a broken immigration policy.”

Visit the film’s website for screenings and further resources.
