“I looked up. Over us, the blues and greens of the night sky melted together. It was like the colours were dancing with each other, and dotted all over the skies, the stars were twinkling, eager to join the waltz.

“Of course she doesn’t know this, but she forgets, my girl. Maybe one day she’ll forget me. But that doesn’t matter. And for now, I do the only thing I can, to make sure that the world seems a bit friendlier, as her memories turn to smoke signals no one can decipher for her.”

and our daughter of fourty-three will sigh and tell us

so we’ll sneak away to the pantry,
and steal kisses by the roast potatoes”
