"i wrote this (a piece of a longer thing i've been working on for years?) after reading Juan Felipe Herrera's Giraffe on Fire. i agree with Adam's assessments that this book is A Lot, that i enjoyed reading it, and that i have no idea how to talk about it." -- Cassandra de Alba
if everything came true
Cassandra de Alba
if the moon stayed in the attic all day like a rock in a shoe nobody was wearing. if at night the moon dusted only that dark with its glow. if the rabbit in the moon was not white but had fur the color of a late-summer field. if all the kids saw a different face in the moon but it called to them in the same familiar voice, a parent on the porch after the streetlights snap on block by green-edged block. if some of the kids had not heard that voice for years. if some of them followed it home.
An ongoing conversation between writers and the text that they're reading.
