Ma called it the crazy. She always had. The old lady called it something else. Most of the time, before I- touched one- I used the word Ma used, or sometimes I called it the weirdness, to myself....

I almost got on board with this story but not quite. We know the kid was forbidden to touch something, touched it anyway, and his mother has to help him deal with it. It all has something to do with his coming of age. But the details are too vague - the abstraction never connected to reality. So.... Could be better, but ok.
