X. insects that are impossible to see with the

naked eye

crawl through what is left

 

IX. knocked by accident off the mantelpiece &

spread all over the shag

 

VIII. burnt in a crematory, stuffed in an urn &

set on the mantelpiece

 

VII. people may come to see the remains staring

up lifelessly from a casket

 

VI. found dead on the scene by semi-interested

law enforcement official

 

V. sideswiped at stoplight: hit & run by a wasted

teenager who just got their license

a week ago

 

IV. late by a few minutes, hop into vehicle, step

on the gas, don’t drive too

fast, but not too slow either: must get to work on

time

 

III. step into shower: shampoo, lather, rinse,

apply moisturizer, scrub with

soap of choice, brush teeth, rinse out

moisturizer, towel dry body, dry hair

with dryer (cold outside)

 

II. stuff food into mouth, wash it down with

caffeinated beverage 

 

I. woke up with bags under eyes, choppy sleep &

no time to catch up on it
