: the hole in your tooth your tongue keeps probing.
: the break in the dust from a mislaid book.
: the chair depression where the cat always napped.
: the condensation ring on the bedside table.
: the steady thrum of a record needle after the last track.
: the crushed grass under a smashed planter.
: the turning to talk to you and my voice smacking against silence.
