A middle-aged man remembers his childhood as he sits on a rotting wooden bench sitting by Lettie's Ocean.
The opal miner lying in the back of his father's car. The orange day. The monster that called its self Ursula Monkton. The bathtub his father tried to drown him in. The hallway with the perfect view of the moon. The kitten with a white patch around its ear. He remembers it all.
