the last book I ever read (Meyer: A Novel by Stephen Dixon, excerpt one)
from Meyer: A Novel by Stephen Dixon:
Walks. Did he shut the storm door tight? Forgot to. When he comes back she might complain. “You didn’t shut the storm door as I asked you to. It was a simple request. What is it with you?” What is it with him? Maybe he did shut it tight and forgot he had. Did he? Forgets. He does things so quickly, without thinking. He’ll find out when he gets back. Door might be ajar. That so, he won’t ask. If she says, he’ll know.
