If my life were a movie
there would be a sunset
and the camera would pan away
— the prophet ani
In the morning, I ask Mo what happened.
She says I wasn’t hyperventilating at all; that I stopped breathing. And that she wasn’t shaking me; she was punching. I guess. I was asleep at the time.
I describe the movie to her.
“So there was no white light at the end?” she asks.
“Not unless God is Al Pacino,” I reply.
“Inconclusive,” she decides.
Life goes on. I spend the morning singing “what if no one’s watching” and thinking about Caballo Blanco.
What if? A day later, it makes sense.
