I need him, think of him, and he calls. The Apostle, right there on my cellphone. We chat of children, of change. He mentors my son in metaphysics. I warn him of his second, as yet unconceived child, as K., his happy happy first is no preparation.
I know what he means to me; what do I mean to him? I wonder.
Wonder. My sister, who reads me sometimes, wonders how well she knows me.
I wonder, too.
I think he hopes that I will say what he's thinking, to confirm that it's true, or right.
Yes. Buy it, if you can. Go ahead signal, loud and clear.
I ask if he got what he needed.
"I always do."
Yeah, me too.
