I don’t know why we hung out in the cemetery, tank tops dusting mausoleum walls in the sleepy heat, except that maybe while eating Twizzlers and discussing our code-name system for boys—from attractive (Swans) to not attractive (Crumpets) and various in between (ex. Monets: only attractive from afar)—we thought angels would come for us, stepping quiet-footed through the grass to sweep us up in a great winged flurry, soft as the moss under our palms, to a heaven without mirrors.
