Living alone, I make a system:
Each furnishing is a meaning.
Residues, habituals. Piles, papers,
indirect lighting. Sustenance passes
from vessel to mouth and passes
to vessel to exit. Ghosts of hard water,
rings on the finish. Divots of usage
impressed in the cushions. Encouraging
notes on post-its. They say: SOFTEN.
They say: GO OUTSIDE.
They say: TRUST IN THE PROCESS.
