w/e

Ivy strung around the neck of a twenty something mother, overdosing while her children poke at her face. She broke into the pill cabinet, locked by her mother. A young mother who needs mothering. Her husband visited her in the hospital. "I need some space." He takes the children. A young father who needs fathering.

Too much space between families already too closely linked. Daughters holding their brothers close in small closed in spaces while the space between the back of a hand closes in on closed eyes.

This is brilliant.
I like how abstract the narrative seems, it's refreshing.
