Allegra knows this.

Allegra (eighteen)

And I’m working at this like group home with Suzy Harris. We hang out a lot. You know who she is? I think you’d like her. She’s a lot of fun.

She was supposed to come here with me today but . . . she couldn’t make it. Bobby’s good. He works at the garden place in Salem sometimes on the weekends.

He wishes he could be here too. He’s uh . . . a good boyfriend. I think it’ll last for us. One of the great . . . things. F***! It’s just as hard to talk to you now that you can’t talk back.

I can’t ever say the right thing to you. You’re just so . . . not there, aren’t you. You always ignore me. I know even if you can hear me right now, you’re not paying attention.

You never . . . Why don’t I matter to you? What do you want from me?!! Maybe you just want to be left alone. Well, that’s what I’ll do then.

I’m sorry I disturbed your deathbed you selfish f***ing b*stard! You self-centered, egotistical, pompous, f***ing b*stard! I don’t care what you want! I hope you die!

I hope you f***ing die real soon! You can f***ing rot and be eaten by worms! I hope f***ing worms eat you! Worms with big f***ing teeth!

And rats and flies and vultures! I hope vultures dig you up and take you out of the casket and fly away with you! You f***! (Pause.) I miss you.

I’ve always missed you. I’m sorry. I don’t want you to die. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. Oh, Christ, I’m so sorry. Please don’t die. You’re so small. Please, Daddy.
