I am ain hd, an educator and poeta. I like to play with paints & tell stories with photographs. In my spare time, I dig art shows, I dig through crates at record stores, I dig capturing moments with my Sony, thrifting, prowling used bookstores, laughing and learning. You may also dig me here: twitter/ainhd

There’s nothing glamorous about being a writer.

It’s grappling with ideas, battling the cliche, fighting the urge to revise your revisions. It’s struggling with words and how to make them sound fresh each time you string a set of them together. It’s long nights staring at a computer screen only to pen one sentence that you’ll delete later. It’s tossing pages of prose and regretting that you didn’t tuck them away in some safe place because at this moment you realize how perfect they were.

Nothing glamorous at all.

He inspired poetry.

I wish I’d never let him go.

My heart turned cold and I weep over his old letters - surprised that someone can still make me feel.

You opened up a part of me that made me want to be a better writer. I fell in love with words when I heard you speak. And your movement - so fluid, free and selfless. Thank you for sharing yourself with us, King. Welcome to ancestry.
Rest in Paradise.

final note to clark

by lucille clifton

they had it wrong,
the old comics.
you are only clark kent
after all. oh,
mild mannered mister,
why did i think you could fix it?
how you must have wondered
to see me taking chances,
dancing on the edge of words,
pointing out the bad guys,
dreaming your x-ray vision
could see the beauty in me.
what did i expect? what
did i hope for? we are who we are,
two faithful readers,
not wonder woman and not superman.
