"Mangled Guts Pretending"
- Harper: In your experience of the world, how do people change?
- Mormon Mother: Well, it has something to do with God, so it's not very nice: God splits the skin with a jagged thumbnail from throat to belly and then plunges a huge filthy hand in. He grabs hold of your bloody tubes, and they slip to evade his grasp, but he squeezes hard. He insists. He pulls and pulls 'till all your innards are yanked out. And the pain! We can't even talk about that. And then he stuffs them back, dirty, tangled and torn. It's up to you to do the stitching.
- Harper: And then up you get. And walk around.
- Mormon Mother: Just mangled guts pretending.
- Harper: That's how people change.

"And I love you terribly. Terribly. That’s what’s so awfully, irreducibly real. I can make up anything but I can’t dream that away."
