In the moment in which I wanted to immerse myself in her poems and the pains she described I was pulled out because she started talking about another problem. That kind of heaviness means auto-ostracism. The type that ,other wears like a perfume but stinks like a sewer. Today is a wonderful day - any day that starts out like this is.
