Things left in the hallway outside my neighbor's door

- The stem of a rose. First it was green and strong, recently clipped. Now it has rolled in between the carpet and the baseboard, gray and forgotten.

- An earring, tiny blue charm. Maybe slipped off in a rush to work or the bedroom. Not pretty enough to miss, or to even notice on the floor.

- A Q-Tip, yellowed and pulling apart like milkweed.
