Caitlin. Your father is sad. I turn back toward the Facial Expressions Chart. I wonder how Mrs. Brook knows what he’s feeling right now. And I wonder if I’ve done something wrong. Why? Her head pokes forward like a turtle before she pulls it back in and says in her Nice Voice, He misses Devon. Oh. MISS is a strange word, I tell her. Have you ever looked it up in the Dictionary? There is MISS like MISS Harper the principal. There is MISS like you will MISS your bus if you don’t hurry because you have to step on every crack.
I give a big sigh and say, Fine. I will figure it out myself. But I have no clue how. We walk together on the playground and Mrs. Brook talks but I can’t hear her. I’m thinking too hard about Closure. When the bell rings I stand there sucking my sleeve until I remember I have a maybe friend and I go find Michael. He’s on the jungle gym but comes over to me when I do our wave. Hi Caitlin. Do you know how to get to the state of experiencing an emotional conclusion to a difficult life event? What?
Caitlin. Why don’t you try clasping your hands together or putting your hands in your pockets and squeezing them into fists or one of the other things we’ve talked about instead of sucking your sleeve? I stop sucking my sleeve but I’ll go back to it later when she forgets because I’m persistent. She nods at kids on the playground and tells me what they’re doing and how they’re feeling but I don’t know how she can tell. I don’t even know which kids she’s talking about. They all move around too fast.
