MY LAST SMILE

I
HAVE LIVED MY LIFE TRYING FOR SANITY IN A WORLD INSANE, WHILE BEING TOLD THAT

ASS BACKWARDS.
Sometime after this photo was taken my mother began to say “smile or your face is going to freeze that way” offering, as proof, the example of her grandmother, “the old squaw,” whose face did in fact – I'm not making this up – “freeze that way.” (I can believe it because no one could ever remember my mothers father, my grandfather, ever smiling.)

I

HAVE IT
