a picture is worth a hundred thousand million words.
unfortunately, the picture is stuck in my head, and none of the words are coming to mind.
i'm sitting in the dining room watching the rain come down on the hollyhocks, and listening to tender bones by ohbijou.
this song is perfect for rain and hollyhocks.
and also, this song is perfect for the indescribable picture i have in my head.
we were walking; we were about a block away when the accident happened.
there was an angry horn, a collective gasp.
then there was an elderly woman under a big white truck, and blood, and people.
i'd never seen someone like that before.
i'd never seen limbs like that before.
and we couldn't help her, but there were people who could, so we could only walk and walk and walk until our shaky legs gave out in a park where we sat and prayed for her.
i know we left her there, but i brought her picture back in my head.
and i know she's not under the truck anymore, but she is.
