To accommodate her, I pared myself down further, until I was practically flat, then hardly more than one-dimensional. I stripped myself of the word righteous, and the word ... well, all the words, until I wasn't feeling myself any more, until I was numb, uncalled for, but she had no need to call me: I was always there. Minus these words I looked no different. She didn't notice they'd ever been attached to me.
