sitting on the floor, taking drinks directly from a bottle of expensive vodka
and fingering the coin collection i never knew existed; the typewritten notes in a spiral-bound book (a feat i puzzled over for several minutes); my birth certificate, the birth certificates of my brothers; my parents' wedding license; a small, zippered planner that held memorabilia from korea where he lived for two years; pictures of me as a child; air force medals; IQ test results for every member of my family
i thought you seemed like an interesting person. i never knew you worked on the mercury 7.
