Bullies Targeted Him And Even The Kids Bullies Would Bully Targeted Robert Peebles…

Bullies Targeted Him And Even The Kids Bullies Would Bully Targeted Robert Peebles. We All Knew Of Him And His Unfortunate Place On The Playground Totem, But It Didn’t Seem As Though Anyone Knew Why Or How He Got There. It Is Hard To Say If He Even Had Friends. I Can Say I Never Tried To Befriend Him And I Can Also Say I Never Consciously Tormented Robert Peebles. Although One Day, During Lunchtime Recess, A Huge Commotion Started Out Of Nowhere. Kids Were Running And Laughing, Skipping Around and Cackling, Picking Up A Huge Dust Cloud. A Brief Scan Found Robert Peebles Fetal-Positioned On The Floor In The Center Of It. Boys And Girls Were Running By Him, Throwing Trash and Dirt At Him, Stepping On Him, Laughing And Giggling At Him, Pointing Him Out To Others Slapping Their Knees In Amusement — And He Just Laid There. And I Just Stood There. My Best Friend At The Time, JP, Sprinted Up To Him And Kicked Him Right Atop The Head. It Wasn’t That Hard, But JP Ran Away So Fast And With So Much Smiling Glee The Entirety Of His Upper Gums Were Exposed. I Remember How Small His Teeth Looked In Comparison. JP And I Eventually Lost Contact. OSB board, professional artist acrylic paint. Size: XS. 1992.

My Brother Returned to His Own Family Before My Father Died…

 

My Brother Returned to His Own Family Before My Father Died. Work Was Waiting, His Kids and Wife Were Waiting, And Maybe My Dad Was Waiting. I Could Stick Around, Though, And Wait Him Out. The Day Before His Death, I Took On Raking Their Large Yards. He Was Wheeled Outside For A Smoke Which Would Dangle From His Dry Mouth. He Seemed Appreciative. By Late Afternoon He Had The Nurse Call Me Back Inside. I and Him Were Together, Me Kneeling Next To Him — Sofa-Side. We Made Amends, Embraced, And Held Hands. Early The Next Morning He Died. I Would Have Liked To Have Been There At That Moment — During His Exit. Not Sure If He Preferred I Wasn’t Present, Or If She Preferred To Be Alone With Him, For They Had A Much Richer History Together Than I. I Preferred To Not Know And To Just Believe He Did Want Me There But Passed Without Warning. A Couple More Days I Stayed, Doing What I Could Around The House, Making Small Talk, Looking Off Into the Distance, Being Quiet — TV And Music Were Unbearable. I Must Have Raked Up More Than Twenty Bags Of Leaves., found plywood, xerox transfers, professional student-grade acrylic paint. Size: M. 1989.
