At the pool I overheard someone say,
I think conscious sedation means you
know what's happening to you but you
can't feel any of it. I took it as a life and
true to my mother's warning, my face
froze with the expression, and I couldn't
change it, a captive to that awful numbness.
I wish someone who loved me
would kidnap me, a little girl I knew
once said. She begged me to take
her hostage which meant I held her
as she struggled to get free, but not
really. The game, it seemed, could
last a long time without any rescue.
