The same things: leaving makes
love easy—people, place.
Emails with European evangelical
Christians—don't finish your
thought. I think I hate you
one a week, once a month—
you say it twice a year:
"I hate you." "I'm through with you."
Say we're through with not
saying how much we hate.
For example: Burning houses.
Our expanding neighborhood.
Our neighborhood sons. Dr. Phil
says anger is "really only" a combination
of three things: fear, hurt, and
something I can't remember—
don't finish my thought.
No wonder we feel so awful.
