The mockingbird followed and taunted and shook until it disintegrated. Huo gai, huo gai, huo gai, we shouted at each other, and I couldn't even ask it to calm down.

Blurry face, shaking head up and down while we screamed, until it burst. Pushing a wheeled dumpster bin and laughing and nodding at us. Sticking. Sticking to the back of my head.

Don't ever tell your kids.
