“Grandmother screamed at grandfather. Grandmother was always screaming at grandfather. Grandmother called grandfather an old goat and grandfather called her a cow. Every night, they tried smothering one another with pillows but neither was strong enough to hold the pillows down forcefully enough. Grandmother and grandfather quivered. Their limbs were weak from atrophy. They could not get out of their beds and so had to settle on reaching an arm across the bed to smack the pillow against the neighboring face. Grandmother and grandfather’s room smelled of old person.”
