Excerpt from [Mary]:
December 13, 1903 Thomas says, “We are not ourselves- we are only a conglomerate of tiny men who work in the factory of our bodies. Thomas says, “Forgive me, Goose— These tiny men, in our final breaths: exit through the open windows of our mouths.” Thomas closes my mouth with his fingers—I hold onto Thomas’ wrist—His pulse is a tiny man walloping— How can I forgive you? (if you won’t say what it is that you have done?)
