We realized then that you had been split open for years, spilling your contents onto the rug and hardwood. I remembered the rug was green at some point, it wasn’t always brown and slick like the baby had been but wasn’t anymore. When you love something, you love it regardless. I am handy with a mop and bucket. I am handy with a sponge. I am good at being not quite enough. I am good at going and going and persistently recalibrating my understanding of what’s been accomplished.
