I saw my mother to her room, a single, and into bed, and touched her sore head gently and told her I was going to Sanirarsipaaq. She just nodded as if that was no surprise, no more than she had expected from her son the policeman. Tiptoeing out, waving back at her from the door, I then skipped an invitation for lunch with Erika, who had hung around waiting. We walked down the street together. She kissed me warmly when we parted in front of the Yellowknife Inn.

“Good for my image,” she said, “neckin’ with the great Matteesie in public.”

“Not bad for mine, either.”

“Thanks for the help, Matteesie.”

A few yards down the street she turned and waved. I like people who do that, rather than marching off as if that’s that. Sometimes the way Erika acted made me thoughtful about where we might go from here if I didn’t already have Lois and Maxine. But I know that although men and women being attracted to one another outside of marriage is a fairly well known human condition, usually not acted upon, out in the open it looks like a bad thought, like that line in one of Leon Redbone’s songs, “She ain’t Rose. But she ain’t bad. And Rose ain’t here.”

For shame, Matteesie.
