25 the subtle way things change

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?
