    A M N E S I A VII—IX

    “There is an uneasy silence in the pod rac­ing toward sec­tor 22. Onyx and I sit silent­ly next to each oth­er while the south­ern and east­ern periph­eries rush past us. Every now and then I notice his eyes on me. Sud­den­ly, I am a glass house and he can see right through me, into the hol­lows and the attic of my pres­ence, reach­ing beyond my map of myself.…

    A M N E S I A I—III

    I had spent my life won­der­ing whether bro­ken love could be mend­ed when I saw my par­ents drift apart, from secret dances in the moon­lit kitchen to becom­ing strangers, vio­lent­ly and abrupt­ly fight­ing for divorce. Like a glued-up vase. I refused to see it then, but a frac­tured vase still expos­es its porce­lain fragili­ty even after it has been reassem­bled. Even with the finest glue and the hands…

    Fühlst du dich manch­mal in Fra­gen über das Mor­gen ver­loren, darüber was es brin­gen wird? Über das, was hätte sein kön­nen, und das, was es tat­säch­lich war? Über die ver­lorene Zeit und all die Momente, die zu dieser Gegen­wart der Leere geführt haben?
