It was a student who gave me Francis. One Spring afternoon I discovered a bowl on my desk, just a few inches of clear water in it. Floating on the surface was a flower petal. As I washed, it sank.

one day I woke up and I changed. I no longer longed to see my friends or eat or sleep or live. I think if someone actually cared they would have noticed that I was slowly dying.
woke up early enough to shut windows and doors while the air is cool both within and without.

now i may as well see if i can pilfer another hour or two. because i have the whole day ahead to be conscious.
