What We Do Dishes, washed, drying for the next use in a yellowing plastic drainer.

Elaborated family stories hanging in memory, the conversation no longer bouncing in the room. A towel, recently used, coils on a handle on the white stove-front. A letter read rests on an end table, the two creases in the paper causing it to have a boxy “u” shape, read when the guests left. We move on.
