Instinctively I would reach out and feel for her; she wouldn’t be there, just empty space. Then it would dawn on me, I wasn’t home, my wife wouldn’t be here–shit, I’m still in prison. I would blink rapidly as my eyes adjusted to the darkness. What time is it? I would turn on my TV to check the time, 3:30 am, just like I thought”.
