He is sitting on my bed, the one that used to be Welty’s, looking oddly small and young amid the tangle of cigarette-scented sheets. His black coat still hangs off his thin shoulders, and his heavy, European-looking work boots tap in time against the scuffed wood floor. It makes my chest ache indistinctly. I want him to take them off, to lay down here with his bare feet and torn skate shirt, go right back into talking shit and rolling blunts as if we were 16 in Vegas again.
