Special Edition: Hurricane Relief

Coming Together: Special Hurricane Relief Edition (Phaze) Coming Together: Special Hurricane Relief Edition (Cafe Press)

Death and sex. Disaster and sex. It seems that personal tragedy requires affirmation of life. What bigger affirmation do we poor people know that has the same intimacy, the same energy, the same shout-it-from-the-rooftops-we-are-here, as the act of physical love, when faced with the apparently random acts and displays of unparalleled puissance and anonymous destruction?

We pour our love, our hot volatile need, our gentle but urgent persuasions towards, around and into our partner of the moment, wishing, hoping and anticipating our reward. That small, endless, titanic, momentary reward which leaves us less and increases us greatly. Knowing our variously voracious or inconsequently insipid appetites can never be filled we nevertheless contrive to partake of it again.

In that act, that race towards orgasm, that outpouring of lust we defy nature, scream at the stars, challenge the cosmos to do its damnedest.

And so, be it by acts of sexual abandon, gentle love or basic urges we declaim to an uncaring universe: We are alive. We thrive. We will continue.
