This is for Beth

I must forget the sweet things you said to me as I run away from our wedding, taking off in the middle of I Don't, I loved you till that moment. I will never love again.
Why did I think it would work?
We do love each other. I don't love you enough to do this, so I run as I have run from all the things in my life, both good and bad.
the look on your face is burned into my memory, as if I had slapped you across the face with a frozen halibut that I could barely lift.
halibut is tasty but it will rot if not frozen or eaten.
I am frozen and I will not be eaten to be your clone. and I will not be left to rot again.
I am alone in my frozen silence.
you will remember the halibut and starve.
it is what it is.


Beth I hope you like that, the sign wasn't for you the sign was for the story!!
this is for you

Seriously, it's brilliant. "You will remember the halibut and starve."
Thank you for continuing the scrawled thought of a teenager from 30 years ago, who folded it and placed it in an old library book.
