my little sister tells me she will share the staff with me. i’m so freaking excited! it means i don’t have to fight her for it. it’s obvious to everyone that it has always been mine. i open the school locker and pull it out. it’s almost as tall as i am, standing there in my sandals red wrap dress. the staff naturally branches out into a full pair of antlers.
i sit with it next to me at the picnic table. neighbors in the trailer park are asking if i like their microwave. i tell them that i have the same one and it works, but it has one flaw. the light bulb is too pointy. it disrupts the waves and causes things to burn occasionally.
