She’s so selfish it hurts to say the first part of her name, even just the first couple of letters. When they’re the same couple of letters as any other word and I’m beginning to say that word it’s like she’s there again and I shiver. At her and for her. I wonder who taught her to speak through people so unwittingly and act as if it’s the opposite. I wonder if she knows about her body being the reason for (and the respite from) her un-charm. Her perfectly perfumed cross to bear that we’ll all help her carry - until she doesn’t look so good.
