taken for granted

by Sam Way

showers so hot, your body glows like a furnace; grandpa’s wisdom; the cedar scent of yellow pencils; two gray hairs desperately fighting for a chance to be seen; faded outlines of wallets in the back pockets of men’s jeans; the bead of wine that drips down the bottle; mother’s pocket prayer book.
