Synapse Syncopation Serialized

The skitter of dried catalpa leaves on the sidewalk
The tear from cold air
The ache of tired biceps
The warmth of someone sleeping in your arms
The smooth ivory finish of piano keys
The cacophony of orange juice and tooth paste
The mailbox before opening the door
The scrape of ice from a frozen windshield
The kiss goodnight and the kiss goodbye in the morning
The dog barking every time the doorbell rings
The plush carpet under socked feet
The first bite of ice cream
The unbidden smile for no reason
