Zombies. Bean bags. A padded wall. Shoulders. Exercise balls. Fire. The TV when you lose at a video game. Your dog for not sitting. Snow. A window when the doors locked. Disrespectful men. Pillows. The “Charlie-Horse” spot. Steering wheels. Falling water. Your baseball glove. Racism. An anthill. Puddles. An open palm. Thawing meat. Chess boards. A hole puncher. Clouds. Ninjas. A friend’s knuckles. The paper when you can’t write something good. Government. Nitrogen atoms. Oxygen atoms. A locked door with no windows around. Three holes in a sheet of paper. Fake Santa at the mall. Football helmets. A freezing cell phone. A book with a cliché ending. Pieces of wood. The computer screen when you can’t type something good. Snowmen.
