the curve of the word
calligraphic & cooling
a drop of water
I’d splashed water on the bathroom counter, as I grabbed the hand towel to clean up my mess, the water caught the light just so. My attention shifted like the light on the water. I grabbed my phone. The perfect, unmoving model, the droplets obliged my photo shoot. I played with it and landed on this.
My attention shifted like the light on the water.
The phrase—the curve of the word—slipped into my mind as I packed up for work.
Sometimes making a mess has its own beauty.
