"Communication hasn’t failed us, not yet. Not yet is aspirated, like the h in honor. It’s the silent not yet. We don’t say it out loud.
These are the tenses that define us now: past tense, back then; future tense, not yet. We live in the small window between them, the space we’ve only recently come to think of as still, and really it’s no smaller than anyone else’s window.”
