City of the Dead
by Sally Snow
Age Group: Adult
Mourning is work.
Time heals and bullsh*t.
Sexual arousal: You are alive and longing to die.
Remembering brings pain.
Pain keeps the anguish alive.
You want the pain to go away, but
when the pain does go away--
Then our dead die again.
The first time, it kills you. The
second time, it kills them.
You want something to remind you.
You want that pain to stay.
You don't want to move on.
Fresh flowers on a gravestone.
Active cultivation of this memory.
Resurrecting the dead.
You delude yourself and come to the threshold.
Living in fantasy may be the right way to go, from
an artistic point of view.
And because mirrors are magic
the pain is still fresh.
Pain is eventually converted into a memory.
Memories are made by you and you
have control over them.
