the edges all lined up with each other and
parallel to the edges of the table.
A dust-free table and a strong smell of furniture
polish, toothpaste and starch.
Shirts hanging in the wardrobe;
each hanger exactly two centimetres from its neighbour – not a crease
to be seen.
No scrunches, craters or hills in the duvet.
The smell of shampooed hair exuding from the plumped-up pillow.
Toe nails, dog hairs and Bonio biscuits under the bed.
My brother’s room.
