Reading Dear Layla/1

Ale Vázquez texted me the following photos and comments

I understand this and feel it

like an aching in my spine

this too

reading Dear Layla while at the Rockaways
I think of the Palestinian boys
who were killed last summer
while they were playing soccer on the beach

Reading on the train
I wish I had given Sobrino
A hug instead of just a handshake

I think Alejandro has the Angelica spirit:
“it’s so little, but it’s something”

“heart drops into stomach”

Just as a Marcos Chmiel once told me,

“for once, do what is easy”

That’s the fastest I’ve finished any book,
mañana I start it again,
more mindfully than the first time
and this time taking notes
