His harmonica is heavy, breathe in, breathe out, harmony, cacophony, restless, breathless, bravado. I can hear the low thrumming even after I leave the bar. I don’t know how to hear jazz, how to separate myself when I’ve left the room and the song is still soaking the whorls of my veins and my sockets. I told him I was taken after the shiraz was sent to my table, told you I was broken after the song she spun made me bleed there on the floor. I warned you of all the drama that comes with me, the sticky stories that make up a life. It was self-absorbed, and foolish, I saw in retrospect, to be so afraid I’d fail you, as if you didn’t have a web of your own.
