Home Sweet

I’m at the dining room table. The table cloth below this computer is mine; bought at Walmart in Portland, Maine in a haphazard desire to turn my 6 week actor housing into a home. The two candles flanking each side of this bright screen were bought in the Target in Cleveland, Ohio. A set of […]
