  • A single top spins in an old house in a ratty kitchen. It motions round and round depicting a twirl of color if you were to look downward at it. The table appears to be some kind of laminate that aged poorly for it stood with superficial bubbles on the surface. The top always would get stuck in pox and chips in the grain caused by the hundreds of family meals that lay upon it. There had been some dust collecting for spinning trail laid visible in its wake. A pile of dead dried roses remain with an unopen card.
