The investigator told me he had run into a eucalyptus tree going 50.

Then he asked me (in his unflinchingly kind voice) about despair,
about sleep disorders, and why I thought he had a computer in his car.

I couldn't tell him much that he could write down in his report,
just that there could be reasons why he had a computer in his car,
and that I thought he usually wore his seatbelt.
