Quote with 29 notes

Like a metaphor rendered incomprehensible by its ubiquity, there was room enough in in what she had left me for endless imaginings, for an infinite set of Margos.

And maybe this was what I needed to do above all. I need to discover what Margo was doing when she wasn’t being Margo.

Quote with 64 notes

These are things I cannot imagine, and I realize I cannot imagine them because I didn’t know Margo. I knew how she smelled, and I knew how she acted in front of me, and I knew how she acted in front of others, and I knew that she liked Mountain Dew and adventure and dramatic gestures, and I knew that she was funny and smart and generally MORE than the rest of us. But I didn’t know what brought her here, or what kept her here, or what made her leave. I didn’t know what she did at night, with the shades down, with the door locked, in the sealed privacy of her room.

In the end, the rats didn’t matter, not really, because I was in a place where Margo had been alive. I was in a place that saw her after I did, and the warmth of that made the minimall almost comfortable.

I had not cried for Margo until then, but now finally I did, pounding against the ground and shouting because there was no one to hear: I missed her I missed her I missed her I missed her.

Quote with 25 notes

A long line of cars trailed behind me, and I felt anxious about holding them up; I marveled at how I could still had room to worry about such petty, ridiculous crap as whether the guy in the SUV behind me thought I was an excessively cautious driver.

I think maybe the reason I spent most of my life being afraid is that I have been trying to prepare myself, to train my body for when the real fear comes. But I am not prepared.

Quote with 93 notes

I can hear Margo that night as we drive around Orlando. I can hear her saying to me, “I don’t want some kids to find me swarmed with flies on a Saturday morning in Jefferson Park.” Not wanting to be found by some kids in Jefferson Park isn’t the same as not wanting to die.
