(1) Fish Out of Water
He tries to explain (the crux, the point, the intersection between). I try to comprehend (the light, the angle, the flick of the wrist). He sits at his desk (and writes me into another critical paper–Chapter One: Identifying the Problem). I wait (at the kitchen counter for my coffee to drip–eat into my impatience: stale, sugar-raised donut). We gape at each other (fish out of water).
The dilemma presents itself simply enough: she is not there.
Note to self, in the case of forgetting:These two things were written intermittently throughout today–the first one while my professor was looking for his USB. The second one while I was in the library, wondering why only every other floor has tissue in the bathroom.
