She Once Heard Death Was Supposed to Feel Something Like This
Coldkey Pianobones ate a generous serving of amnesia soup, which she made herself from a recipe she found in her grandmother’s favorite cookbook. As soon as she ate the soup she completely forgot everything about her childhood. That felt good. Coldkey ate another bowl. All memories of the rest of her life up to that point disappeared from her mind. She looked at the pot quietly simmering on her stove. Coldkey lifted the ladle and poured some of the soup into the bowl. She took a long breath, picked up a spoon, and prepared to dip it into the soup.
