Don’t read the words, they said. I wasn’t sure what that meant, exactly. But I was told don’t read the words—ANY words…or THE ONES can get into your head, and find you. Any words. Like… anywhere. Seriously. This wasn’t… don’t read a book. I mean, I can do that. I wasn’t a big reader anyway. Or don’t read stupid crap on the internet. But don’t read anything at all. Not even the sign for McDonalds suggesting you stop in for a Big Mac today. Or “The Ones” would know where you were. And would come for you. I guess.
