Small Talk

Small Talk

Talk to a person

whose dying. I don't 

know how to do it. She's 

eighty-seven years old 

and has some kind of cancer. 

Her gall bladder has to 

come out. She once said 

if I could have chosen, 

you would be no different. 

Her gall bladder's not 

working. My sister drove 

us apart. How did 

it get so late, so early.
