There’s this guy and he’s it and I’m it for him, too, and I finally get all the songs and the idea of the long game and also the meaning of the word “partner.” He’s in Nashville and plays guitar for a living and talks to me about the Iliad and dogs and WWII bombers and the house we’ll have one day. He just keeps choosing me. And I never thought I would be chosen.
