Rationalizing the NumeratorRelationships in this modern world seem to be a short lived thing, not usually lasting more than a few months, with true love becoming rarer and rarer. Why is it so? Our generation is a rash one, running into things headlong without giving it a second thought. But ah, is not love just the need to be held by someone, to be with them? While that may be true, to make a relationship work, a rational aspect has to be present as well. The irrational elements to avoid are radically changing yourself, unrealistic expectations and a belief that it will all just work without any effort.

but I think the way I'm trying to picture her perfect urn is probably worse.
There's nothing that I can think of that suits her, though,
and I wonder if I even know her.
Do I scatter you somewhere? You can't visit scatter.
(I think good daughters plant guilt in the carpet pile to trip upon.)
But she doesn't trip, instead she ruminates on how appalling it'd be to divide her in fourths:
she laughs as she's divvying up her body parts for our mantles.
