i pulled the sink's handle towards me;
instinctively grabbing "hot," although
i always forget
which is left and which is right.
my family is yelling across the house at one another
the water runs smooth into my hands,
hot on my face,
drowning them out.
the teabag stayed in too long,
so to remedy the situation,
i will just add more and more water
until it tastes just right.
looking at pictures of the ocean.
it seems big.
looking at pictures of the galaxy.
it seems bigger.
