The Hajji Diary pt. 4

Two Entries by Marcus - September 6th

Entry #1:
"Bob (a name I have for Benny) and I continue to suce burr. Another sun has scurried, and we thank Krishna for that, cus September 4th/5th was beyond a bout of tumult.

"Poor, sweet, undeserving, unsuspecting, kind and kindred Hajji - battered twice within a sun-cycle. One replaced windy, one still shattered, yet Hajji, I feel, we all feel, is happy; we have done our best to comfort her, to rescue her, and now we accept jar in her, calming Herbie Hancock folds about her, bright yet dim conversation emits from her, and warm candles, warm breath, warm thoughts and sweaters resound.

"It's been an unfortunate and unwarranted day, but Boo (another name I have for Benny) and I have conversed, and we agree that the situation is infinitely better now: we have removed Her to a campground, trees and other vans surround. She is away from the terrifying mortar-marked concrete that produced the false men who damaged her...she, and we, and all of us, are away, and safe."

Entry #2:
"From Sept. 4th, approx. 9:00pm, through Sept. 5th, approx. 4:00pm, our worldview had a shakedown. Our idealism was shattered like plastic or glass, our naivete exposed. Trust and hope, these abstract goodies, were carried away by a delinquent wind, a wind that ruffles unsuspecting hair, scatters honest leaves, lifts skirts of holy men's daughters, and blows and chases and makes refugees of tourists."
