The seventh anniversary falls on a Thursday.

She takes a vacation day and rides the Acela up, getting off at Penn Station. 

The hours melt as her feet skim the avenues and cross streets that pump blood out from the heart of the city.

Treasure accumulates – almond-scented bubble tea from Chinatown and a Magnolia Bakery cupcake with buttercream frosting that dissolves on her tongue.

Despite the sweetness in her mouth, she remembers: 

Lampposts wearing missing persons flyers.  

Sidewalk memorials.

Votives mourning by twilight.  

The acrid scents of death and destruction that hovered long past September. 

Cam remembers her best friend.
