Not really. This is what I know.
My mother got pregnant with my older sister Shannon, she says, the first time she had sex, and for the most part I believe her. Mom was 17. It was 1956 and she had to drop out of school. She lived with my Grandmother and Grandma told her if she got pregnant again she would have to leave.
In 1961 Mom got pregnant with me and true to her word, Grandma told her to leave. My father’s parents lived down the street from Mom and Grandma, but he didn’t live with his parents; Dad had his own place.
They never lived together. Dad would come over and stay awhile and then after a week or so go back to his own apartment.

Is this true? If it is, is it worth the pain?

Have you ever been close to death? Yes. When I was a toddler my father stuffed my head in the toilet after he took a shit, then he raped me, and smothered me with a pillow because I fought him. He put the pillow over my head, and at some point I could no longer breathe. When I stopped struggling and let go of the terror of not being able to breathe, I felt at peace.
There were some people up and around a corner (in my mind?) who said they were very happy to see me. I was happy to see them too. I felt so much joy, more joy that I had ever felt. They were familiar to me.
As soon as I was about to see who they were Dad pulled the pillow off my head. Probably because I had stopped moving. He wasn’t sure if he had killed me. I think he had mixed feelings about it. He wanted to kill me, but wasn’t sure how he could explain to the police. It was disappointing. I wanted to be back with those good people who liked and loved me.
Do you know the circumstances of your birth?
I'm a goddamned poet.
if I were to blog my life, it'd go like this...
words that haven't been spoken. actions that have and haven't been taken. thoughts that came to mind through inspiration. lessons that were learned after being mistaken. towards writing I hasten. peace be on you ツ
