    just finished reading a novel it seems you might enjoy. “three delays” by charlie smith. example: “if you left me, i would fade out like a dying indian tribe. i’d disappear like the ivory-billed woodpecker. they’d see me, near the end, standing down on calle cinquo wearing one of your nightgowns, explaining things to the traffic.” one of the happiest tragedies i’ve ever read.
