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.
