Distance Between Objects

Written by Leah Short


The chair in the corner is always
more comfortable.
Solitary, and omnipresent
in all conversation.
Distant enough… so that no one will
speak to me.

I like mirrors a little too high on the
wall. Just enough so I have to tiptoe
to see. I don’t know…
I like the inconvenience of it and
I’m tall, so it feels as if it was
placed just for me.
