“A wolverine is a strict loner, but a man needs people.”
-James Campbell, Braving it

A lot but it makes the reading interesting. Mixture of ideas. Some of the books are at my bedside, others are on the sofa downstairs.
Mrs. Abstract shakes her head. She reads one book at a time.
Can you see a man? Can you start a story?
A man alone on the beach,
looking beyond the waters,
a letter inside his pocket.
