Examples of Confusion

 

1.Familial estrangement

 

I tug a strand of hair out of my scalp and thread it neatly into my mouth then pull

it through the gap in my teeth, taut

 

as though it were a moth unable to find the quickest way

out of the family living room, ignoring the wide open door –

batting the window with a pair of dust-brown wings.
