when you are REALLY tired, you always want the easy way out, its like listening to a scratched record over and over again when someone who thinks they know really doesnt know, and they try to preach to you. i remembered my mentally handicapped brother god rest his soul being tied to a radiator in the bathroom with a belt while my 22 yr old mother ran the street andÂ left us, i remember being locked in a room for daysÂ with a skeleton key without food or water and being BEAT for sneaking out trying to find something to eat.Â i remember there being nothing in […]

Yesterday was my brother’s birthday.
My brother, who would have been 47 years old, committed suicide by hanging himself from his attic trapdoor in the hallway of his house on December 15th, 2008.Â He left no note, no explanation, no message of any kind.Â Since his death I’ve had the near-obsession of recreating his life from the scraps that were left.Â An email here and there (I was able to hack into his computers), a receipt from Home Depot (for rope, plastic zip ties, and a metal pole) that was dated four weeks prior, bills and business files, phone calls and messages on his cellphone, the […]
