Love letter # 13

I see colours differently than others. Dear World, If I see a colour and it looks like purple, it’s because that’s how I was socialized to know the colour purple. If I say it’s purple, then by God, it’s fricking purple. How dare your people look me in the eye and tell me that my…

Love letter # 12

Phlegm laden saliva torpedoes attacking me. Dear World, I’ve been feeling a little flu-ish over the weekend. I’ve been medicating and topping up on my fluid intake, so I haven’t been feeling too bad. In, Suburbia, I learn that if I cough, I shouldn’t cough in my hands and then touch surfaces that others will…

Love letter # 11

The only thing people should go fishing for is seafood. Dear World, I find it necessarily important for you to tell your people that the only thing they should go fishing for is fish and other seafood. Let them know that compliments don’t swim and they don’t fall prey to bait attached to a hook in…

Love letter #10

Not so much laughing or cursing this time around. This one is about a friend. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Dear World, It’s been about a month since I last sent you my love. There isn’t much for me to apologize for by the way. I only made that statement to let you know…

Love letter #9

I hate waiting in vain. Dear World, Suburbia never fails to satisfy my ego but your people seem to be a part of my superego. The women and men that you call your natives are always denying my need for instant gratification when I wait in line to served in any capacity. What the hell is…

Love letter #8

I know you missed me yesterday. Please note, however, that it’s not always about you. Dear World, Why is it that when a family loses a loved one, your natives find themselves at the family house with “dem long han” expecting to be fed and sit down and watch the family try to forget that…

Love letter #5

Teaching myself restrain. Sometimes it’s better to not say anything. Dear World, You play karma with me constantly. I admit that I may not like the game but I am grateful for it none-the-less. I am a Suburban with little tolerance for just about anything and anyone that seems nonsensical. As a result of this…

Love letter #4

Food was made to be consumed and enjoyed, no matter what it is , no matter how it is consumed. Selah! Dear World, As you already know, food is any substance consumed in order to maintain life and encourage growth. You know that I love food; what normal person wouldn’t?! This letter is not intended…

Love letter #3

The things people of the world say and do amaze me. I voice these issues to you because of the relationship we have, World. Yes, it’s a love/hate type but you listen and that’s all that matters. Dear World, Some of your people amaze me. I would like it if you could explain the reason…

Love letter #2

This is in part an ode to my father – may he continue to Rest in Peace. January 20, 1953 – June 22, 2008 Dear World, My father would have been 60 today. But you already knew that didn’t you? When he got sick, I thought you were trying to teach me some lesson I…
