No response at all

July 6, 2009

The assumptions and announcements dropped in from a distant country, so innocuous it was easy to ignore the subtext.

Out in the sun, I rolled up my sleeves to bare my shoulders, absorbed warmth against the chill. A cup of green tea, a new freckle or two, a moment to remember each mile I traveled to get here. I left any response I might have given somewhere out on the highway. In the golden light of afternoon, there was nothing to say.


  1. Inspiration from real life? :)

  2. Tamikka, indeed. ;-)

  3. One of my favorites. Ever.

  4. Jen, thanks. :-)
