Now there is a flutter! Keeping me from those eggs, lost to appetite, more buffeted by the dénouement than by the initial knotting, the release and relief un-numbing my hands and setting them shaking. I find fiendish the cruel crushing grasp, raising gasps, in which a simple white oblong card can hold us. The logo on it, rising sunnish from the datebook, will burn my retina for weeks. It's astounding that I don't tattoo that stray ticket to my arm – even I can't lose my skin (though that remains to be proven), but normal (for me) to precipitate a vow that never again will I allow a concert seat to roam. (Keeping the vow involves a different, lagged propulsion.) Now, about those eggs . . .
