Telling Stories

She retreated into a dark room,

unable to think anything but what a loser she had become.

The stories repeated about a pulled tooth, an imperfect cervix.

The Glass Menagerie is coming so I used the story that Williams

bore great guilt when returning home to find his sister had a botched

lobotomy. Made weighing 175 lbs not seem like the end of her world,

for just one brief moment. Then the insanity returns. How to change

enough to exit this room and return to hopefulness. None of her own

stories have any truth anymore. Paranoia locks her inside day after day.

Stories can jar one somehow to return to the world and try reality.
