Field Notes on The Smallness

  1. She exhales longer than she inhales
  2. Sandwiches rotting in a pink backpack
  3. She sits so close to the edge of the chair that it pulls itself out from under her
  4. The skin is a shell that shouldn’t be woken up
  5. Leave the shell crushed in the garbage disposal
  6. She lets the yolk creep into the usual places
  7. Men in stiff jackets lick the smallness of their fingers
  8. They butter their toast with it
  9. They wipe their hands on their pants, blotting the stain immediately
  10. She’ll have to inhale eventually, mouth that drips, tattoo stain
