I’ve been watching those old videos. Not sure if it’s a good idea or a bad idea, but it jibes with a conversation that ran through my head the other day. I imagined myself saying to Karen, “I want you back,” but then I thought: no. I want her back. That Karen. Before these last few years.
She hears those thoughts, of course, since after all she’s just a construct in my mind. And she says, “You want the impossible.”
“Yeah,” I say. “I want the impossible.”
