Empty husks
Strewn across the bathroom sink
Balancing precariously

A slight nudge
Disturbs the silence

They come crashing down

A swirling vortex
They come to rest with a click
At the centre

Hard and unchipped in their off-white coarseness

Opal on the underside

It doesn’t hurt me as much as it should

I got that feeling of plaster falling from the ceiling. Giving the setting a bleak state of repose.
