a little girl draws her family in crayon, eager for mommy to find an empty spot on the refridgerator and stick it with a magnet.
a dog waits patiently by the door for 8 hours for his master to come home. sitting, holding, waiting, looking, waiting. and finally the car door. the footsteps. the key in the lock.
a man buys red roses on the way home from work. last night was bad and the night before was bad and the night before was bad and the night before was bad but tonight will be good.
red stick-figures crumpled and torn. a leash on the coat rack collecting dust. fresh flowers in the morning trash.
who what when where why how.
