Telling: Streams & Logs

10 Things


  1. How my line-dried shirt smells of air freshener.
  2. Feet perched on the little chair, the bend of my body sweet as homecomeing, the perfect podium of my thighs.
  3. The way the azalea branches sprout 5 from the same juncture like baskets waiting for a weave or the prongs of jewel fittings waiting for a jewel.
  4. The arrival of wasps and bees.
  5. Listening to people talk about money.
  6. Waiting all day to remember what I'm doing. And why.
  7. Wondering what it might mean to choose against my heart.
