I don’t know what this ring is worth. He paid $200 for it in Albuquerque in 2005. I don’t know if the band is white gold or platinum. “It’s white gold. Fourteen karats. I can give you forty dollars for it.” I take the money. “Mommy? Do you know my name?” Your name is Anderson Cooper. Spider-Man keeps spinning webs. Peter Parker still loves Mary Jane. A nervous breakdown would be such a luxury. Tear everything down and hide. What does the sun want with my face? I punish myself. Lose my phone. Cut the ties. “Mommy, won’t you get tired of walking?” I was born to walk.
