You came a long way here. You came through horizontal rain, all night, with everything you own. Did you really come to work in a bookstore? If you wanted to do that, you could have stayed home. You came to find the wish in your heart.

You came here from russell-it’s-in-Michigan, here to this very large city that sits right where you could balance the entire country on a pin. I came much further. I know what you’re looking for. You have a wish in your heart. To find a world beyond. To be crowned with the secret knowledge of the immensity of love. The hardware of life is just hardware— you were meant for something more.

There is someone here with a black and desperate loneliness shaped exactly like you. You don’t have to do much. Just stay. And speak to him a little.
