Jack and Rosie

Jack&Rosie-KellyLTaylor

This is Jack and Rosie. They lost their heads and found each other.

How did they get here? Where have they been? Who loved them before? Who loved Rosie so much that she has a worn spot on the back of her head where there is no painted hair? She used to have a soft body and a chest with a noise maker that whined when you rocked her. Now she is silent, paint flaking off her pouty lips.

And Jack wonders why so many people shudder and say, “Creepy!” when they see him. He’s nice. Just look at his smile.

Clairsentience, also referred to as psychometry or psychometrics, is the ability to perceive the history of an object or person by touching it. Wouldn’t that be fun?? Maybe not…
