hello, my darling, how are you? myself i have felt quite possessed of a spirit of growing and changing. i wonder if you’d be impressed. or even if you’d recognize me, shapeshifting creature i am. sometimes i’m afraid you’d despise me. so many souls don’t understand. i try to live what you taught me. always saw you as awful wise. you learned so much from your troubles. now i am learning from mine. plenty i wish i had told you before you had to go, but we get where we get when we get there and when we’ll get there we don’t get to know. there is no postage on this letter. i have not writ down no address. i cannot count on it to reach you now that you’re both burnt to ash.
