Telling: Streams & Logs

10 Things


  1. The panic that rose in me when we tilted the chest of drawers down the stair.
  2. The way a scrub brush loosens dried dog vomit so that I can vacuum it off the rug.
  3. The small bruise on the tender side of my toe that makes it feel like I've got a pebble in my shoe, even when I'm barefoot.
  4. Eating meatloaf sandiches listening to the fall of New Amsterdam.
  5. My tea arriving in a box labeled as beauty products.
  6. Algae in the water jar.
  7. Posting his last radio shows.
  8. Counting down to the day he went hom and didn't get up again.
  9. The ache that insists I am still sad about this.
  10. Such a dull repeating, as if I hadn't been paying attention.
