Anima Rerum

 

Things said briefly in a public restroom

 

Things I threw away before you found them

 

Things in the bottom drawer of the nightstand

 

Things that only animals eat

 

Things you never sent in the mail

 

Things they did to you when you were a child

 

Things you said out loud you shouldn’t

 

Things you got you didn’t expect

 

Things you always hear on the bus

 

Things that take more time than they should

 

Things that defy explanation

 

Things that are 50% off

 

Things that are safe for your family

 

Things you throw up at 4am

 

Things that got you in jail

 

Things your wife suspects about you

 

Things I never seem to get back to

 

Things that don’t have odors

 

Things that look better on film

 

Things you would do over and screw up anyway
