Last night’s dinner covered in ants.
The metal contraption that cooks in various shades of black.
Dirty plates, empty cups.
A girl with broken eggshells in her lap.
The snake of uncertainty.
A spider without legs.
A dust mote, a cockroach,
a senile cat.
The hive of a head.
The blue beneath.
Hide and seek.
Tripping over objects.
The man in the photograph.
A final receipt.
