the last book I ever read (Self-Help: Stories by Lorrie Moore, excerpt five)

from Self-Help: Stories by Lorrie Moore:

I try not to look at my chest. It is ravaged, paved over, mowed down by the train tracks and parking lots of the Surgical Way. I know there are absences, as if the hollows were the surreptitious marks of a child’s spoon in tomorrow night’s dessert. The place where I thought my soul was located when I was five is no longer there.
