Things you forgot to take with you

A toy goat, because you liked goats. It lives on a shelf in my apartment now.

A very small mug from Cape Town.

A slight uneasy feeling whenever I look in the mirror for too long.

A pair of dark green boxer shorts, with the elastic band so worn they fall right off.

A book by Kenzaburo Oe which I’m pretty sure you never read.

A picture of the two of us and your sister.

A toothbrush, probably.

A notion of not having measured up when my birthday comes and my phone buzzes and it’s never you.
