"Akiva caught her eye again. There was the spark and flash. Light and heat, racing up a fuse. No more laughter. She saw that his hands at his sides could not find stillness. He curled them into fists. Uncurled them, but they would not be at peace until they were allowed to do what they wanted and touch her. His whole body was taut. So was hers. They were violin strings, the pair of them, ready to sing. A question in his eyes, in the tilt of his head, in the set of his shoulders. His whole being was this question."

"I was always looking for myself in the wrong places
in the hands of men who knew how to curve my body like melted glass but did not know how to gather when I turned to rainwater in their hands
whiskey bottles, even the ends of cigarette butts or their ashes
I looked everywhere except in the places I needed to
the ocean, the open road, in myself."

"I only remember in fragments. The map of her face is forever stored away, every inch of her skin remembered by the tips of my fingers like a story written in Braille."
