The top of my husband’s dresser.

His clock radio.  His box of important paper and the cat brush.  The head made of stone.

There is a cough candy stuck in his mouth right now.  Often we stick other things in his eyes, nose or mouth – pennies, rings, subway tokens, a tiny tube of cold sore medication.

During the night, if I am awake, I look over at my husband’s dresser a lot.  What time is it now?

The stone head looks back at me always in perpetual shock.
