                  dark corner, bare bulb, square
                  one thought. hearth with care-
                  ful ashes. rocker, unoccupied.
                  embroidered shrine: marriage’s framed
                  zygotes. cow-eyed portraits.
                  all-season ancestors,
                  carpet. everlast bricks
                  irrelevant. modern kitchen defunct.
                  growl morphs into rattle. a thimble
                  of ouch matches brown
                  accessories. whatever works.
                  a little string, a little dust.
                  take a pinch of salt
                  and measure it.
