Tomorrow is our permanent address

While going through my archives, I found these pages from a 2004 journal. The brown boy and I had just gotten married, and I was resisting all the extended family’s combined pressure on me to start propagating the species.

In this angry book it seems that while I did not want to have a baby, I knew all about the details of bearing one. What a know-it-all I was.

[Sometimes in the living of every day

I often forget about the life of it

the intentionality, “the composing of the life”

that I once set out to do. The daily bustle,

that once emerged from me –

often swallows me up

until all I can do is hold on for dear life

to banal rituals

so that I don’t lose myself.]
