I forgot to put the dishes in the sink. Your lips are lines by Manley Hopkins. I like the
way my bare feet feel on the carpet, my skin in your dress. I'm not doing anything else
on a saturday afternoon. A war starts between different kinds of fascists, fireworks are
thrown at important people in sensitive areas of the world, a package arrives and there
is no one to pick it up. The wheels keep turning, but I am here, running a finger down
a line, a shape. There's nothing abstract about this.
