hands
        i spent yesterday and this morning putting my junk treasures in order.
 there is now a paper box stuffed with snakes and a pewter bowl filled with skulls, bones tucked away in a wooden purse and a plaster dental cast holds my daughter’s tiny baby teeth as well as her four wisdom molars.
 if i didn’t have to work today i’d be there still. finding the perfect place for the doll heads, listening to our neighbor the pakistani street dentist running his drill. lu would still be laying in her little patch of sunlight until she was half way melted.
