He lays the dinner table – one plate, one knife, one fork, a neatly pressed napkin – the pattern of his life.

There were other choices along the way: a woman with hazel eyes and a warm, forgiving smile; a child who could have been plucked from the family photo album, the same unruly hair, the same jutting, stubborn chin.

But he shook them off him like snowflakes from a coat. And now there’s only way to be.

Alone.
