The skin on my fingertips is cracking. I washed all the dishes by hand. I dried them and stacked them and put them away. I walk on the wall between honest and kind. I wait for the film to unwind, or become exposed. The darkroom is where I first taught my heart to close. To add the sulfate and turn on the bulb so the picture wouldn't change, the way turning on the light doesn't knock over the first domino. How your arms rise from your sides when you skip, a bird taking flight. How you lie on your stomach to photograph a seagull. How do you love two people? When I close one part, the cracks form somewhere else. I walk on the wall between honest and kind. It is seven feet tall. I throw an arm out to either side for balance but it reminds me of you, so I fall to the right.
