A paring knife in the kitchen

A bent spring from a pen in the bedroom

Broken shards of plastic from the same pen, in the same room

Half a bottle of Advil in the bathroom

A razor blade from an old pencil sharpener, still in the bathroom

The sharp edge of a broken stick, in the canopy of a tree

The ground below that tree

The wire from a spiral ring notebook in the school bathroom

Sharp shards from a broken rock on the drive home

A bread knife in the kitchen

A pocket knife in the bedroom

My mind everywhere I go
