"In the Cemetery Where Al Jolson is Buried" by Amy Hempel — Fictionaut "Tell me things I won't mind forgetting," she said. "Make it useless stuff or skip it." I began. I told her insects fly through rain, missing every drop, never getting wet. The camera made me self-conscious and I stopped. "Go on, girl," she said. I had my audience. "What else?" Oh, yes.
