Never Love a Wild Thing

"She walks in beauty, like the night, of cloudless climes and starry skies. And all thats best of dark and bright meet in her aspect and her eyes."

Frankenstein enters into a body building competition and finds he has seriously misunderstood the objective

FOR THE LAST TIME, FRANKENSTEIN WAS THE NAME OF THE DOCTOR

…a doctor who built a body.

It’s a metaphor, see: you hold a pen with your homework in front of you, but you don’t do it, you don’t give it the power to do its killing

When you have a great grandmother as old as mine,

people are surprised.

Surprised that human life can sustain itself for that amount of time

when there’s earthquakes, floods

and the plague is brewing somewhere in the south western united states.

She’s a bit of a fun-fact I keep tucked away in my pocket,

the secret ingredient to add spice to my All-American

white-washed family.

My great-grandmother

Ana Agostinha Da Silva

my Avo

Is 106 years old.

Born in Portugal in 1907

before there was any of this new fangled stuff like

sliced bread, flip-flops,

running water.

She has lived a life that even I,

the only writer in the family

pre-destined to write all birthday cards,

grade papers with encouraging notes for godmother’s third graders

and deliver eulogies before the subject have even died

cannot attempt to describe.

I don’t have the right language.

That isn’t some poetic attempt at expressing the lack of words

to transverse the span of her life.

I mean Avo Ana has lived in the US for nearly 40 years,

and speaks no English.

Her vocabulary is limited, littered with colorful phrases like

shaddap.

no money, no funny

and she knows how to say

"I love you."

I am told that when she speaks in Portuguese,

Avo Anna’s thread-bare voice becomes a tapestry

of old family stories and jokes that flirt on the edge of dirty.

I wish I could understand when her wrinkles deepen with laughter,

and her blind eyes shimmer with far-off memory.

But sometimes she talks about how tired she is.

When I was born, she had been talking about dying

for a decade already.

She got to see her 12th great granddaughter

live to the age where her oldest granddaughter with the same name

die.

But when you’ve lived to be 106,

you’ve seen a lot of people die.

If I could speak Portuguese,

I imagine that Avo Anna and I would talk a lot about being tired.

Yet, there are moments when she still sparkles,

a family heirloom taken off the shelf and given a good dusting.

At her 103rd birthday,

she whispered to no one in particular

"Every day is a blessing."

This from a woman who has lived for nearly one million hours.

Still smiling at sunrises she cannot see.

I remember that I am still young

and have a lot to learn.

I only know one phrase of Portuguese:

Eu amo te, Avo.

this woman is literally making me question my sexuality. I met this woman at CUPSI in Boulder. My Coach knew her and introduced us on the street. I only wish I’d known how much she would come to inspire me. I would have fan-girled a little bit harder.
