ACCORDING TO THE FILING MADE MONDAY IBRAGIM TODASHEV TOLD INVESTIGATORS TAMERLAN TSARNAEV PARTICIPATED IN A TRIPLE SLAYING IN WALTHAM ON SEPT 11 2011.


Being with you is 1ike going upstairs with an ax. A black playground filled with floating triptychs, folding up until they are just gold panels. My father in pain curled up next to a golden retriever. If you could see through his skin you might glimpse a Ferris wheel in the distance. My brother filling a conch shell with his own blood while using public transportation. His face is a mixture of vengeance and reproach. Shells that are internally pink. While driving to Utah lake, a slow procession of firefighters moves in the opposite direction. At sunset, they camp by the side of the road in a field. Our hearts go out to them because they have been separated somehow from their brothers. Later, sitting beside the lake with you, I perform necromancy for my first time.
