So sour a thought.

One last eyebrow raised as these curious thoughts pass behind my eyes.

I shuffle through the possible responses and finally contend that this, my presence in this room, is no longer relevant to his interests.

when things were falling apart.

Elizabeth, My Friend.

From the stars in the sky
to the white and blue seas below,
the beauty beyond compare
to those who know
