a friday tragedy

17 years ago today, also a friday, on a dark rural road in southern illinois, my car was totaled. along with my back, my spinal cord, and my mobility. half my life. and though it doesn't hurt as much as it did those first few years, on anniversary days like this, when my memory returns to that night and the days and weeks that followed, i feel what's left of that loss.

and in a coupla words, it fucking sucks.
