**forgets that you dont understand japanese**
I remember the table at my grandfather’s house. It had carved legs in the shape of a myriad of animals, spiraling around each other, whole ecosystems within each leg.
But it was also well-used. We ate there, we talked there, we lived around it, in rows and columns delineated by chairs and space.
I remember diagonals of sunlight in the late afternoon, drawn across its flat expanse, transfixed by my grandfather’s hand as he swept it through whatever story he was telling, to highlight the words with motion, to motion us closer to the words.
I remember my mother, as rapt as I was. I remember my brother, as rapt as I was. I remember that I haven’t seen my mother or my brother for months now.
And in some ways, I miss that table more than I miss them.
