The emigration of love (Part II)

By Rico Moore
Of my earliest memories — of being with my mother and father in an Aspen Grove near the border of Colorado and Wyoming. Down a gully from the cabin, built by my family in the ’70s, is a source. It is summer and the sky is blue. In the early morning, light spills dappled leaf-shadows through pleached layers of branches and trunks.

On the other hand, if agents were able to get through security 95 percent of the time with illegal weapons, you’d think terrorists would be able to get through security at least a few times, too. With few reports of airport attacks in the last decade, this must mean they’re not doing the airport thing anymore, and by extension, terrorism is dead.

THE EMIGRATION OF LOVE

By Rico Moore
We slowly walk along the canyon trail. Below us, the creek roars — seems a swift-coursing vein, flowing to Ocean, where waves become waves, travel and pulse onto shores. I’ve been walking these wilds for some time, ever since having discovered them as a child. I’ve been collecting fragments — potsherds — stories of origin. I’ve stored them in a reliquary, shaped like a page that always returns to blankness. Each of the fragments appears as the syllable of a name. I’ve been arranging them for years, listening for a voice to speak — though I’ve never been able to see, as in the reflection of a stream, a face that resembles the feeling I feel as I look on the world. In what follows, I’ve re-arranged the remnants in the form of an essay, in hopes that they’ll sing together in chorus, linking things linked where links are unseen.

In case you missed it

From the day that Leon Wurl arrived in Erie with his trademark vision to build a roof top to roof top community as far as the eye could see, the town’s leaders have claimed they’ve been forced to say “yes” to every kind of expansion imaginable...

Growing public concern about antibiotics in dairy products prompted the FDA to conduct a study of almost 2,000 milk samples from across the country looking for 31 different drugs. More than 99 percent of the samples were drug-free, but the remaining samples (less than 1 percent) had traces of two drugs that aren’t part of routine testing.
