when i hit the ground (in all my glory): songs for claire beauchamp. dragonfly in ambervoyager, 1948-1968.

and then, looking down into reflection, i would see my own round face and frizzled hair against a featureless blue sweep, and think instead that the puddle was the entrance to another sky. if i stepped in there, i would drop at once, and keep on falling, on and on, into blue space.

It was true. I wasn’t good with liking someone. My instinct was total self-preservation: show no sign of weakness. This was my pathetic way of being shy.
