things that are dotted

a line

a scarf, gauzy, draped casually across my shoulders

the wind, with pollen

a rash on a babies back

the soles of my shoes

the floor beneath the coffeemaker

allergen testing on skin

the divots of plants in a mass planting

blackheads across a teenage boy’s nose

a peg board for tools

a lite-brite

perforations in a hygeine mask

the tip of a hypodermic needle


oil drips below an older car

paint splatters on a canvas

my sentences
