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. Let’s lay on the bed and listen to the gray run off of our membrane. Let’s watch beauty without the misery of inhabiting it.
