I’m wearing a dead woman’s socks. Suzy. She gave them to my husband a couple months ago, a 3-pack of white Polo socks. Said she’d ordered them online but didn’t need them, or they didn’t fit. I can’t remember. I lose socks a lot. I’m mildly famous for wearing two different socks at all times, so I gladly accepted them. Also, my dad sold Polo clothing at Dimensions, the men’s clothing store he worked out in Philadelphia, so I have a spot soft for the dude on the galloping horse, his mallet in the air. I’m wearing Suzy’s socks and thinking about what the dead leave behind.

Everybody suffered. The key was to choose the form of your suffering.

A postcard for start of new school year by artist L.Härm, 1968
A striped cat is a well known teacher of Estonian children, as everyone knows the verse:
Meie kiisul kriimud silmad, istus metsas kännu otsas. Piip oli suus ja kepp oli käes, kutsus lapsi lugema. Kes ei mõistnud lugeda, see sai tukast sugeda. Kes see luges aru sai, sellele ta tegi pai.
Our cat has striped eyes he sat in forest on tree stump. Pipe in his mouth, stick in his hand, he called children to read. Who did not know how to read, got pulled by hair. Who was able to read and understand, got petted by the cat.

Our cat has striped eyes
he sat in forest on tree stump.
Pipe in his mouth, stick in his hand,
he called children to read.
Who did not know how to read,
got pulled by hair.
Who was able to read and understand,
got petted by the cat.
