I struggled to fall asleep last night, and I wondered if you could feel it, too. The air was viscous like your mother’s homemade jam and it wouldn’t slide down my throat, it just welled there instead. I wondered if you could feel that catch in the back of your throat; the same as it did in Mine. Is it the same when you breathe— do you feel the oxygen pour from your lungs to mine as if we were tethered by our throats? And maybe it gets just a little easier when we’re together.
