Text

START: How could she be frightened of me! I worship her! (Quickly controlling) How could everything turn out to be the opposite--I made my son in this bed and now I’m dying in it…(Breaks off, downing a cry) My thoughts keep flying around--everything from years ago keeps coming back like it was last week.
[... …]
END: She was a knockout; sometimes walking down a street I couldn’t believe I was married to her. Listen… (
Breaks off; with some diffidence
) You’re an educated man, I only went to high school--I wish we could talk about the Jews.
