Neil Hilborn – “As Much Wind As Possible”


So because of a chemical imbalance, I don’t really experience joy. There’s no bright morning
in a bright summer. What strong river or arm of wind. The moments, when they do arrive
on their slow boats, fall apart as soon
as the light touches them. Always it’s in a car,
always the windows down, always the music too loud. It’s never apparent
that none of us can sing. The way cotton candy falls apart
at just the suggestion of rain is the only thing I’ve found
to describe remembering, after you’ve just been happy, all the things that make you less alive. So, this is the stone
at the bottom of the hill. This is the sapling
and then, later, the chainsaw. I have no reason to be here again, windows down, ears beginning to ring. There’s nowhere to go, and I’ll be damned if I ever get there. (applause)
