Yes, clowns can be creepy. Still, the corruption of the nest where humans are hatched clips far more wings than childhood party favors gone bad. Barney was also kind of creepy. Yet, it was mostly neglect that tempted a generation to suckle icky purple milk from the saggy purple breast of a cheesy purple friend. What the hell am I saying? A mom and dad who love each other and devote themselves to their offspring is a rare and priceless gem.
What is the IT that cannot be named? While media terrify black folks with ghostly shrouded klansmen or toothless cackling nazis and NFL millionaires insist that racist cops are the blight across America's landscape, actual statistics show the violent spawn of dysfunctional black families pillaging, raping, and murdering their black brothers in epidemic proportions. Yet, it aint a black thing. From white trash Appalachia to brown barrio Mexico, shattered and scrambled families try desperately to give their children some semblance of the picket-fence paradise-lost dream of a happy nurturing family.
If you wanna change the world, shoulder the Herculean task of building a great marriage and family then shining that light to everyone else. Not man or woman enough? Well then, join all of us self-important multitaskers trying to fix the world while denying the real problem we have little solution for. We have met the enemy, and IT is us. I have now written my first horror lit, but I fear it may be too traumatizing even for adults. May God have mercy on us.

A crocodile thrashes beneath me. The squawking and dripping of the rainforest where Mel Gibson filmed Apocalypto and Sean Connery filmed Medicine Man surround three sides of my cozy wood cabin that overhangs a lily-choked shore and overlooks a mist-shrouded isle broadcasting monkey chatter across the glassy lake. It’s Christmas in the jungle. The lush fertility extends to a curvaceous young form peacefully dozing under the blanket beside me and deeply inhaling from the cool oxygenated air. I recall a perfect day.
