Ghost story


“Let me tell you a ghost story: After my father’s funeral I left my brother at the Spirit Room in Rochester to get cigarettes — It was a part of the city I hadn’t been in for at least 40 years”
“Although the mural hadn’t been there when I was 12 and I was only following the bartender’s vague instructions -- I knew what I would find at Ochossi’s feet”
“Looking back on it — although it was only a few years ago — It seems to be a moment of apology — Dad saying ‘This is how innocence was addressed back then’ “

Well, y’all, if there is a message, please let it be ‘Never Stop Rebelling,’ or as my Teacher says ‘Never be satisfied.’

Much love,
