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?)
