peaceable sibling

for Aidan, Noah, Mary Ann

The boy lived in a town by himself. Because he didn’t know his own name, he did not name the town. The town had one street that circled the town and there were no houses or buildings. The boy was never hungry, and if he was, he’d never been hungry enough to know it. He was thirsty often and because he’d had a dream about his body being full of water he’d spit on his palm and open it to the sun. He was not afraid to leave the town but still he did not leave it. Perhaps he was its bravery.
