Let me go and keep me
with a small dance
a song of celestial harmony
soft laughter
of intimacy
and that tear
let it find your tongue
it’s salty taste

American Elf, by James Kochalka, is ending. For a long time I didn’t even “get” this comic. It even annoyed me.
But I grew strangely fond of it. At points it’s simple almost to the point of being dumb. But there’s a unique, bare-bones poetry to it. American Elf is the stuff of life.
I am gonna miss it.
