The subtle way things change
The subtle way things move around unnoticed
Switching a book on the shelf
The pile of socks is one sock larger
Something left unhinged
A towel folded horizontally
Being unable to smell out one nostril
Rewatching your favorite show
And noticing a new detail
How do your bones crack in the evening and the morning?
When the sun sneaks up and away from you
A kiss a millimeter to the left
A belt’s forgotten notch
Maybe an itch you’ve never experienced
Or the sensation of relief afterwards?
Did you feel sadness for the first time?
Can you remember the last memory the same?
