Not Quite Gone

pushpinsEven once you think you’ve finally moved on, I’ll still find you in the most unexpected places.

My favorite book will appear on your shelf. My fingerprints will decorate the condensation on your water glass. Every newscaster will say her vowels like I do.

You’ll find my smile tucked behind the mirror and my too-dark eyebrows stowed underneath the mattress.

Your pajamas feel as soft as my lips and the light in the hallway flickers to the beat of my heart.


Welcome to Microvember, my take on NaBloPoMo. Each day this month I’ll be posting microfiction, short vignettes, or poetry, accompanied by photography. See more Microvember posts here
