Pretend This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

November 14, 2010
bare feet hanging off the bed
my coffee tins
the old ones
with the chipping paint
are full of sand
that I smuggled home
just a little got into my suitcase
I hear the water in the pipes
and I will try to pretend it is the ocean
when I close my eyes
but there's no sweet smell of palm trees in the breeze
that's ok
I didn't sleep well there
