Reading in bed. It's your adult body, but your childhood bedroom. You're alone; you're not dressed yet. A woman enters without knocking: elderly, gray. You're shocked at the invasion of your privacy, and very angry. "Fuck off. Get the fuck out." Her feelings are hurt. As she leaves you can hear her crying. She's crying in the other room, along with other voices speaking. Your own feelings are mixed. You're sorry that she's sad, yet you remain boiling angry.
