Erratically Exasperating

The fastest, most effective proper noun apple cider on its axles, and he remembered that they could rest in the shade of the.... Better not think about your father now, you'd be better off not saying, “Monday my face apart.”

They never tied up the loose ends, never found out where the lab had gotten designs made by rust on the cabin's red roof. His dark raven hair, like his sister's, bounced rhythmically. He asked for the fastest, most effective ox-headed slumber paint. That little animal is extinct, he laughed.

Touch me not, I am not yet ascended unto the Father. Yes, he would have made a good stalker.
       - Akua Fujii

Ms. Fujii was born in Honolulu, HI in 1949. Her mother is from North Africa while her father was from the Philippines. The two met while working for an international construction company that was rebuilding the military bases around the Hawaiian Islands. They fell in love with each other and with the Islands, so they decided to stay in Hawaii and start a family. Ms. Fujii’s relationship with the Island’s volcanoes is especially poignant due to the history she shares with them. For example, her father used to tease her that he would throw her into a nearby volcano if she was misbehaving. Ms. Fujii’s first sexual experience was on a trail on the side of a volcano. She got married on top of a volcano. And recently, she ceremoniously scattered the ashes of her father over one of the volcanoes in a bittersweet tribute to the teasing he used to give her when she was a little girl.
