- Chapter 03
A woman, a mother looks from a sunset to see her son poised between land and sea, child and man.
Do I dare dive in and cleanse the dirt of childhood from my skin: sun lotion so lovingly applied, dust from games played in the streets, half-melted ice cream on my hands?
Do I dare dive in, dissolve maternal love to find flawless pearls of purity for me beneath the flawless tropic sea?
All she does is watch and suffer a change into something strange and emptier than before.
