The room is spinning. Every name and hello is sweet on the tongue like syrup. Tara, Nick, Doreen, Julia, Candace, Andrew, Rachel, Sofia. How sweet it is to remember, to be remembered. Colors melting. Peach carpet. Mantle and bed frame powdered sugar white. Low lights. Like sunlight through the ocean. Everything is submerged underwater. Lean and sway with the current. Bubbles of laughter, shouting to compensate. Burnt sugar. Violets in your peripherals.
