"I’m sorry I couldn’t pull up those roots."

Storyboard Text

  • The ones that, on a blurry August afternoon over a decade later, I tugged at desperately, really I did, sweating in the heat, hearing the steady hum of your push mower grow louder as you moved mathematically across the backyard, which I had already cleared of sticks and fallen branches. (Sausun 1)
  • "That, from the big window, I saw you bend down to pick up what you were certain were sticks and fallen branches. And that I saw you tugging at one of them before trying another, and another, and another, and another." (Sausun 2)
  • "I’m sorry that when you slid the push mower under the pine tree one of those roots caught the blade, and the push mower let out a satanic sound and then there was nothing but wind or maybe not even wind. (Sausun 1)
