A brain on fire does not belong to a human being. Maybe I should have cut ties with her father right then. My father talking to the police. Let the anxiety and fear and anger lap against the shore of my own body, confined.
They get marched in by a prison guard, feet shackled, hands shackled, the musical clink of chains and the squeak of cheap plastic prison sandals filling the room as they shuffle toward their seats in the front.
In January, this new girlfriend left town and Rob came to my house and stayed for a week. While my hands stayed busy my mind stayed blank. Just leave, I said to myself.
The guard asked me to leave, and then just walked away. The essay below is the conclusion of the ninth part in a series by Takuan Seiyo.
The sharp rocks under my bare feet, the thorn bushes brushing my bare arms, the vague outlines of shallow gulches I would trip into, skinning my shins, the squelch of mud and slugs in my toes, the rustle of unknown creatures. My parents had about 20 acres of scrub forest, old sheep pasture, outside of town, near the lake, with a decrepit farmhouse sitting on it.
Not a ripple in sight. Trying to make feelings disappear is insanity.
My brother was nowhere to be seen. The police say he must have gotten hypothermia, turning his limbs to immovable weights, before he made it to shore. Not everything I felt was anger, my therapist insisted. And when the tears did start coming, she taught me how to calm down again.
It can learn bad habits. I took another Xanax. I moved into the house. James Robinson is called up next. To remembered my brother as a person again, not a tragedy.
He was fresh out of rehab, ready to try again. I used to think my behavior mattered. Fancy white marble courthouse. Rob let me leave with my daughter, and the police showed up at my house about a half hour later. They let me defer a few months, and then I went back to New York, where I wrote articles and did research and appeared to move on with my life, without my brother.
Inscription on the back in German: I leaned on him, and felt my body relax. I started to go, but before I could make it out the door I started trembling, sobbing, and before I knew it was tearing posters off the walls and screaming. That synapse of yes-crush-yes-smash has disconnected.
At night, I would walk into the woods, barefoot, and sit beside piles of flaming brush, listening to the coyotes howl. The base instinct, the lizard brain. I shoved her off me, into a window.
The history of the Third Reich also proves that with the right formula of economic blowup, misery and humiliation, sparked by charismatic evil, no people are immune to such horror, at no time. My driveway swarmed with cop cars. I listen to her breathe, smell her skin, and am so flooded with feelings of love and gratitude, pride and happiness — joy.
Not really my fault. I control my own actions. A teep is a front kick, you use the bottom of your foot. It also took therapy and medication. See the list at the bottom of this post for links to the previous installments.I finally realized how to stop turning my grief into anger.
