Sitting at a long wooden table, grains different shades of worn. Scratches on the finish, I trace one with my finger, a maze made from careless forks, fingernails, steak knives. Candles comes floating in from the dark, I see the glow of my mom's face, shadows dancing across the wall. An assault of voices of different pitches reminds me that I'm getting close to my third decade. Angel food cake, berries glaze down the side, leaving soggy spots in their wake. I breathe in, blow out hard, the room goes silent for a split second, then light floods in and cheers erupt from my friends and family. Engine hums outside, doors open and shut. My mouth opens and shuts, chewing sweet spongy birthday goodness, whip cream sticking to the corners of my mouth and nose. Candle wax puddles in bright rainbow colors---
