(Bubble) Wrapped


- glove box:  happy hum, sad hum
- back seat:  her quiet cooking (clinks, clangs)
- trunk:  awkward reading pose she loved
- rearview mirror:  hang the wolf stare

- shoebox:  green clouds and lightning dances 
- ziplock:  deep laughter stomach ache 
- newspaper wrap:  the Lost Glove/Beach Incident

- coat pocket:  spine-pricklies when she spoke profoundly
- front pocket:  patience, sure-feet, velvet voice, cedar/clove perfume
- wallet:  night we tossed rocks in ravine; first kiss
- countertop:  record scratch, key jinglings, lightbeams in morning milk

- ON BED:  - (her side) - crushed glass, pain of crash 

- lights off, lock the door
- passenger side (don't forget) -  her bubble wrap
