Again I Formed Whole / Patrick Mahoney

The most compelling story of the year landed on my plate during the first week of 2015.

Patrick Mahoney's story of a bike accident, brain damage and poetry will resonate with anyone who has peaked over the edge of their own mortality. A day of photographic collaboration staged in a reborn Berkeley house yielded so many life lessons I'm not sure how to spell it all out sufficiently, so I'll simply share a poem written by Patrick titled "Heaven".


Where I want to be
until I find out

I’m already there.
This world beyond

is inside the wool
sweater my mother knit,

behind these eyes
my fingertips touch

each morning. I live outside
lands long settled and embrace

minutia—I smell the coffee
ground, then taste it brewed.

I feel the dirt road with my feet
through my black faded Chucks.

The end of the road
goes well beyond sight.

So I turn on tips of toes
and I am breathing deeply—

the air, tasting of oak-moss,
my eyes—still closed.
