"this is my favorite feeling in the world:
you’re eight, and practice wraps up for the day

and in the parking lot, two headlights beam.

well, many more do too, but these are yours."

What do Lynne, Esau, and Jacob have in common?

I can't remember.

A play about fractured selves, driving, and cats with brain tumors.

A work in development.
