And Teenesee says, "Yes, I am the woman who appears when grown men cry out for their mothers. I am the ferryman who rows them to the other side." Aurora Brackett

Soma Mei Sheng Frazier
There is the iconic flat line, and their mother is gone, too.
My body keeps on without me. I see it, running alone through the dark and white world: the navy blue night and the sparkling snow.
Every Shape that the Moon Makes
