Pancake · i see Apolo Ohno at airport security, i walk in step with him, tell him how his life outlook has influenced me. as im walking i feel im falling/shrinking/dyeing, he says he has to go, if i send an email he will respond but im crying, I say i only have a sentence left. i'm growing younger. weaker. he kneels, says finish. i do. i'm 7 years old, i collapse, he lifts me across his arms, body limp, "i think" he says "no planes will crash today."
