CATE COVERT: In My New Year, I Resolve to Let You Go


You texted: “I’m finished doing those pagan holidays—no gifts or cards, please. The kids are all on board.”

You memory-holed me; everyone forgot.

Then, I heard about your parties.

Did you fear my disability was contagious?

I’m weary of pointless waiting. I release you from all obligations.
