Cynie Cory Tallahassee (Michael Trammell)

about why I didn’t want to write this

She was in Rio de Janeiro with her mother who practiced Santeria.
I felt dizzy on the boardwalk in the rain.
I could not stop the sea from opening
the credits of what was left of
my neurology at the bottom of a boat that could not be anchored.
