Panama

“Where are you going?” I asked
“Thinking of going to Panama.”
“Why?”
“It’s the last place I saw you.” She pressed her beautiful hands to her face and said, “In Panama I’m married. I have a man and he’ll stand up for me through thick and thin. Everywhere else I’m in pieces.”

– from Thomas McGuane’s novel Panama (review forthcoming soonish)
