Perfection Bradley Allf
is a tall house in the sandhills a bedroom on the top floor of that house with a yellow bathroom and an enormous tub washed in warm tile. A glass ceiling and outside a never-ending late afternoon storm. Inside the hot water of the tub, the clean sheets, and the desk looking out and above it all; I sit and see through a screen wet branches, ferns, deer shaking damp from their eyes. Letâ€™s lay on the bed and listen to the gray run off of our membrane. Letâ€™s watch beauty without the misery of inhabiting it.
