all our grandfathers are ghosts. by pasha malla

i’m in a chicken and egg sitchy-ation with pasha malla‘s work-i’m not sure if my life is a series of unfortunate coincidences that make me appreciate his work more, or if his work just seems to fall in my lap at the exact time that i need a pick-me-up from an unfortunate coincidence of my life. whatever the case-i heart him.

from “Who’s Josh“:

Sometimes, love

is like picking up

and holding to each ear

a cat

and listening for the music

of the seats.
