Telling: Streams & Logs

10 Things


  1. The patience of an elevator with no buttons pushed.
  2. The rain clouding my glasses.
  3. Turning the wrong way. My GPS letting me.
  4. The grace of a pink umbrella.
  5. The waiter who remembers, and the one I've never met.
  6. The man who calls her sweetheart, the blue of his shirt that matches mine, the steamroller chin. "Hey sweetheart," handing her bills. "I know I don't have to but I do because you're a sweetheart."
  7. He seems to be staring my way so I don't look up.
  8. He says to his friend "...start taking pictures of trees."
  9. The closer conversation: "I wouldn't say that too loud."
  10. The lights in the dark contained in themselves like christmas ornaments.
    All the dark in between.
