I didn't want my picture taken because I was going to cry.  
I didn't know why I was going to cry, 
but I knew that if anybody spoke to me or 
looked at me too closely the tears 
would fly out of my eyes and 
the sobs would fly out of my throat and 
I'd cry for a week.  
I could feel the tears brimming and sloshing in me 
like water in a glass that is unsteady and too full.
