A young boy kills an ant and Maj responds, "One day your heart Of compassion will open. Everything will change. Clint: You’re a fat ass." I empathize with the boy. Hurt and angry there is no lecturing that will change him. His only hope is love. "Summer is old. The lake has turned over, a murky, pungent green. Clarity is nothing I want any more. Let our closeness be such, when you weep I taste salt." I picture the affection this lonely child needs.
