Grin 55




'First comes the abandoning, then 
the state of been left behind, 
finally remains the abandonment.
Once asked how I'd overcome.

I said. Not.

Not defeating, nor overcoming 
is what you do on your own.'
She watches her hands
they are two of them.

‘You still have your children?'
- No, they have me.
- You always have yourself?
- Myself, I was a parcel
   a present of my wife.
   She opened it once.'
