One summer in Dayton, 

we spent it  in her sister's house

 

I was killing time before starting grad school

she was working nights at a local bar

 

Mornings were basically afternoons- 

we rarely fell out of bed before noon

 

I remember the hallway to the kitchen

small squares of afternoon light shone on hardwood floors

 

half a dozen odd shapes

from several West facing windows

 

they moved across the house as the afternoon 

shuffled across the yard 

 

I told myself I would take a picture so I could remember the images

it was one of several promises I broke
