“We were together for so long, we forgot how it was to be separate. Once, I was I and you were you, but then we were we. We woke up, went to sleep, ate and defecated in between. We often suffered nightmares we had no intention of sharing. We thought that if we whispered these fleeting visions, the nightmares would come true and devour us alive, maybe starting at our toes, or perhaps, our tongues. We each had a tongue but they were joined at the tip, then the root.”
