Michele: Do Not Hesitate

“You need to sign the registration form.”
He hesitated, pen poised in air, sighed, then signed. The caseworker noted this, put it away in his head for later.

28 days later, he was outside again, free. He got a cab to his sister’s house and borrowed her car.

“For a meeting. I have to go to these meetings now.”

He hesitated in the church parking lot, then drove off for to a different meeting.

Later that night, he passed out on his bed and never woke up.

No one was surprised he was dead. Just that he hesitated so long.
