Only yesterday I was kissed on the top 
of my head, only yesterday I was baking 
lavender cookies and dyeing my hair. 
Sometimes whales will leave home mid-song 
and return months later to finish it, as if 
there had been no interruption. 
Dirty water fills up my sink like a lung.

— Gale Marie Thompson, “Animal spotting"
