  3. He makes the landline ring in the early. His voice is like an easter basket.
  4. We talk a long time trying to feel better.
  5. So much sunshine there's no bumping into the edges.
  6. The hawk flies up to the wire and looks back down.
  7. Flour and water invite yeast.
  8. He left his necklaces behind.
  9. He is looking for a lost picture of a boat.
  10. The moon is slipping away.
