No smoke drifting in the heat of the house after a wretchedly hot day, the indelible association of this song with cigarettes smoked and strangers not talked to, of friends who are and are not still friends. The buzz of the fans about as loud as the mandolin strumming, the volume down as she sleeps. And the wondrous possibility, hedged by the usual early stage uncertainties, that this may have worked. That all of this over these last 5 months wasn’t just an exercise, a way to expiate guilt or uncertainty. That it may have worked, in spite of me. 113 bpm. Who knew?
