Total Eclipse

 

Annie dillard

 

            Part of my own complex interior junk,

            drawing of a motel room in pen; Saskatchewan.

            Some things seem important when you’re

            twenty-two, like remembering the shape

            of an ancient television, or how slow rain slapping

            car windows sounded.

House Stuff

 

2 glasses

2 mugs

2 plates

2 bowls

Stuff to make tea

Big fruit bowl

Laundry hamper

 

Groceries

 

            I have eaten the 2 glasses

            you left in the 2 mugs

            and were probably saving for 2

            plates. 2 bowls are so sorry.

            Stuff to make tea was a big

            fruit bowl; so laundry hamper

            and so groceries.
