Haut or Not: Baby Butler

blake_mk

Blake Butler’s penchant for fascism, literary or otherwise, may have begun earlier than we thought. Is that a two volume set of Adolf Hitler, or does his mom (whose bookshelf this is) just need an extra copy to bear through Yom Kippur? Throw in Southern Baptist evangelist Billy Graham’s Angels in the mix, and the phrase ‘white power’ comes to mind — of course, I am joking; everyone knows that Blake is the blackest person here (his wicked tongue cadence actually comes from the best rap). What concerns me isn’t the Christian or Nazi fascism — it’s Your Erogenous Zones, probably stained, because, let’s remember, that is his mom’s book. God, I just had a flash of Mrs. Butler discovering Chapter 3 with a bedpost. For those who aren’t catching the allusion, it’s Freudian: we deny our birth by entering the less ‘viable’ orifice.┬áSome people are anal and vacuum all the time. Blake is anus, so let’s not think about what’s inside that diaper.

      OMG! That’s my baby! Oh wait. I have no babies.

      When my big guy was a baby, one of his favorite things was to go to a bookself and take the books out, one by one, and throw them on the ground .Such joy! And I would let him do that- I was like, that’ll keep him busy. And it did! Then, later, I would go and put them all back. There is another thing -where you go “no, no” and put each book back and so forth. I didn’t do that. He also would eat a tomato like an apple and get tomato goo all over him and then- you know – then I changed his shirt. He also shoved shit into the cd and vcr player. We found crayons, toy trains, and so forth. We went thru 3 video players when he was a baby. He loved to shove shit into holes!!!! hahaha. But he liked to drag shit out of thier places and throw them to the ground? Go figure. Babies are the best.

      I wish I had a baby. I am jealous of all women who have babies. And then I try to temper my envy with – I had them? Right? I was there? Waah. Then I cry.

      I am having a martini evening.
