30:18 Todd

He wished to God he couldn't watch her move,
wished he was oblivious to the way she walked,
wished he was deaf so he couldn't hear her voice,
wished he had no sense of smell or taste or touch.

He wished he was stone, wished he was dead,
wished he was anything else in the world
and not her grandfather.
