BWDDMTTD:

Because nothing stays in its place anymore, I dream of anchoring everything to its place with a few lengths of string. If I did this for my entire house — trailing yarn from my toothbrush to the bathroom mug, the spoons to the cutlery drawer, a flurry of strings all across my bookshelves — I would have filled this place with a million quiverings, taut or loose depending only on the small distance between any item and its proper location. If I did this for my entire house, nothing would ever be lost, and no one would ever move.

  1. Wow. I found this site through your tumblr, would you mind if I posted this to syllablefingers.tumblr.com along with a link? No worries if you’d rather I didn’t 🙂
