Precious

10:00 til midnight. A night at the movies with D watching the new film Precious. Powerful. Bodies beaten, bloated, heaving. Hurt. Precious walks with a weighted sorrow in her bones. Beaten down by incest, rape, violence. I’m shattered. The drawing moves with the pain that propagates through this film that has just barely enough hope for healing. The night walk back is misty and cool. Alice laps at the water bowl while I draw and write.
